While many people recall the accident that Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner was involved in, few know that a portion of the case was recently settled. For those not aware, Bruce Jenner, before his transition to Caitlyn Jenner was traveling on Pacific Coast Highway in 2015 when he lost control of his SUV while pulling a trailer and caused a multi-car accident that tragically caused the death of one of the other drivers.
According to eyewitnesses Jenner rear ended a Lexus that was pushed into oncoming traffic and was hit head on by a Hummer. The driver of the Lexus was killed on impact. As a result of Jenner hitting the Lexus his Escalade read ended a Toyota Prius driven by a talent agent named Jessica Steindorff. It was Jessica's case that was settled for an undisclosed amount. Steindorff was seeking compensation for lost wages, medical expenses and property damage. Steindorff was also asking for punitive damages in the amount of $25,000
The cases involving the driver and family of Kim Howe, the driver of the Lexus remain pending as does the case between the driver of the Hummer and Jenner. In this case the Los Angeles Jackie Lacey District Attorney Cases initially considered charging Jenner with manslaughter for her role in the fatal accident and in September declined to press charges.
Cases involving multiple plaintiffs, especially when there has been a death are quite complex and require aggressive pursuit from an attorney due to the potential of insufficient insurance. In all likelihood Jenner will have sufficient insurance to cover all claims but you never really know. We have sadly seen cases like this where there is minimal insurance and even no insurance. In cases where there is insufficient insurance or no insurance you need an experienced attorney to look after your best interest.
