Fireman killed while on the job receives financial settlement for his grieving family, Tabor Law Firm reaches settlement though a challenging case

Wrongful Death

A well-respected Fireman for the Muncie Fire Department needlessly lost his life when a structure collapsed while battling a blazing fire at the Tabernacle of Praise. Our client left behind his young wife, and their three children.

A wrongful death action was brought our client's wife and their children. A number of obstacles to a successful recovery had to be overcome, including the assertion that an archaic rule known as the Fireman's Rule barred a recovery for the family.

Ultimately, the matter was concluded by way of a financial settlement with the insurer for the Tabernacle of Praise, which helped protect the family's financial future.
