Icy roads caused two cars to collide, killing Amy, a mother of three young boys. All of the drivers shared fault for the accident, with the state patrol and the accident reconstruction experts showing both drivers were partially responsible. But the insurance company for one driver wouldn't pay despite the testimony of their own insured accepting responsibility. The family was willing to settle if the company would pay its $60,000 policy limits, but the insurance company refused. After eight days of trial the jury found both drivers at fault and awarded Amy's family $4,600,000.
