A: Get the advice of another attorney. You /the attorney need to find out if there was excess or "umbrella " coverage. Did your brother have insurance on his vehicle? Was there underinsured coverage? Suggest you contact a member of the Miss. Assn for Justice in your area--they give free consultations.
