    $8,000,000 award for death of teen

    The loss of a child is the worst tragedy a parents can ever imagine.  Parents are never supposed to bury their children. The emotional toll of a child taken through negligence is indescribable.

    Leighton Law’s John Elliott Leighton won an incredible arbitration award of $8,000,000 for the parents of a 19 year-old student killed in a car crash on Florida’s Turnpike.  In addition to the complex liability of a commercial vehicle crash with a passenger car, Mr. Leighton focused on the real world loss to these clients. The deceased was survived by her parents, who had to deal with the wrongful death of their only child. This is the largest known award for a single death of a minor child in Florida. Seetaram v. United Rentals Arbitration Award.
