Piqua, OH asked in Car Accidents, Personal Injury and Wrongful Death for Ohio

Q: My 16 year old daughter was given marijuana last year that resulted in a fatal car crash, should I sue the contributor?

Apparently my insurance was cancelled at midnight the night before but I received a letter contradicting that and that we were still covered for the next month. We, of course are being sued by the family of the motorcyclist and was just curious on appropriate steps.

A: You have an attorney I assume.For anyone reading this, you want to save all envelopes notices of cancellation come in.

Often insurance companies date the letter one day, send it a week later for the bulk rate. As to your other question, yes you can bring in the person that got her high, but depending on how your daughter comes across the jury may decide that she should have just said no.
