MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Jurors in Dane County Circuit Court will decide how much insurance money should be paid to the parents of a doctor who was killed in an ambulance crash.
Dr. Stanley Phillips and three other medical workers were heading to Appleton to bring a baby to Meriter Hospital in Madison for surgery on July 10, 2013 when the ambulance crashed on Highway 26 near Rosendale.
The attorney for the doctor’s parents argued in court Monday that Phillips intended to help take care of them financially in their retirement. The State Journal says Meriter’s insurance company agreed to pay medical bills, funeral costs and an amount for loss of companionship.
Jurors will decide whether additional payments are warranted for pain and suffering and for loss of support.
