$3.6 Million Resolution for the family of Beloved Grandparents Killed by Negligent Driver
The Meyers & Flowers team led by Partner Michael Lenert worked tirelessly on behalf of the family of Betty and John Fassig in a wrongful death lawsuit against John Goldone III and his insurers, which was settled this summer for $3.6 million. The Mendota, Illinois, couple was killed last summer when their car was struck by Goldone when he failed to stop.
The Fassigs were survived by their two children and five grandchildren. The couple was active in their family and community. They stepped in to raise their three granddaughters when the girls tragically lost their parents less than 18 months apart in 2009 and 2011. The youngest of their granddaughters was in high school and still lived with Betty and John at the time of the accident. The couple could often be found on the sidelines of their grandchildren’s soccer, baseball and basketball games. They also cared for their disabled adult son.
“Betty and John were amazingly kind and caring parents and grandparents,” said Mike Lenert. “Over the last year, we dedicated the full resources of the firm to aggressively represent their family in every step of this case as worked in their memory. It was a privilege to work for the Fassig family our hope is that this settlement will serve as further closure for the family, as they continue to heal from their heartbreaking loss.”
The Meyers & Flowers’ team conducted an extensive investigation into the circumstances surrounding this case as we developed a comprehensive litigation plan and relentlessly pursued justice on behalf of the Fassig family.
