$89 Million Awarded In Drunk Driving Death

Published December 4, 2009 by Scott Gottlieb, Injury Law Attorney

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports a jury has awarded $89 million to the family of a 28 year-old man killed in 2008 as a result of a drunk driver.

Dennis Riegel Jr. was killed and his pregnant fiancee was seriously injured as they returned from a shopping trip. She was 13 weeks pregnant at the time of the accident and has since given birth to a daughter.

The 20-year-old driver who hit Riegel’s car had a blood alcohol level more than two times the legal limit and was driving on a hardship license after an earlier DWI.

Riegel’s fiancee and daughter will probably not be able to recover the award.
