Toby Keith, a popular country music artist, lost his father in an accident. His family sued for the wrongful death of Toby Keith’s father. It was initially believed that Toby’s father was at fault for the accident. Further investigation revealed that the vehicle, which was owned by the Defendants, was poorly maintained and in need of brake repair prior to the accident. A jury awarded Toby Keith and his family over $2 million for the death of Toby’s father. This case illustrates that even famous, wealthy people suffer losses. Toby does not need the money but this does not mean that his father’s life did not count or that Toby and his family deserved compensation for this great loss.
