Why do we offer free rides?

On March 28, 2016, a young mother was driving her son, age 14, home from soccer practice. In the car with them was the grandmother. While they were traveling through an intersection with a green light, a drunk driver sped through a red light and careened into their vehicle. The young mother was killed, the grandmother grievously injured, and the young boy also injured. The driver was intoxicated on alcohol and illegal drugs.

After years of litigation, we obtained a verdict in excess of $27,000,000 for the family. But, it didn’t matter much. The life of this sweet family was forever changed.
