A Grand Haven drunk driving accident has resulted in the death of Nicholas Kennth Iverson, 20, of Muskegon. Nicholoas Iverson had been riding on the front end of a car driving in the River Haven Mobile Home Park when he fell off and fractured his skull. He subsequently died at Butterworth Hospital. The driver of the car has been charged with driving while intoxicated causing serious injury.
This is really tragic. Hopefully, this accident serves as a reminder that cars can be extremely dangerous instruments and that people should not drive after drinking.
The Iverson family can use their Michigan No Fault insurance to pay for Nicholas’s medical bills. These benefits will also help pay for a portion of his funeral expenses through a survivor loss claim. Other benefits may also be available depending on the circumstances of the accident. In addition, the Iverson family may have a claim for wrongful death against the driver of the vehicle and they may have a dram shop claim against a bar or restaurant that served the driver alcohol. Whether these claims would be successful depends on the circumstances of the accident so the family would be best served by consulting with an experienced Michigan car accident lawyer who specializes in drunk driving cases.
