Litigators with a Jupiter law firm helped secure a $13 million verdict for the estate of an Alachua County woman killed in a head-on car collision.
Richard K. Slinkman and Ryan J. Wynne of Slinkman, Slinkman & Wynne represented family members of Michelle Anderson in Alachua Circuit Court.
A jury verdict determined Anderson’s husband, Emanuel, and her children were entitled to damages for pain and suffering, as well as compensation for loss of companionship.
The wrongful-death suit was filed against the estate of Calvin Lee Adams III on Jan. 19, 2017. Adams and Anderson both died on the morning of Nov. 14, 2016, as Adams was trying to bypass traffic on Southwest Williston Road in Alachua County, according to court pleadings. As noted by Slinkman, the two-lane road — south of Gainesville’s city limits — had slow traffic on the day of the crash.
