A lawyer is suing a client for $1.8 million for a wrongful death in an auto collision in his hometown of Indianapolis, Indiana.
In a lawsuit filed Monday, the attorney, Christopher T. Miller, claims that he was injured while driving in the city’s suburbs during a crash involving a Honda Accord in 2015.
The suit claims Miller’s injuries were caused by a tire he hit while trying to stop at a light.
Miller is represented by the law firm of Jones Day, which is represented on the case by his attorney, Scott M. Miller.
Miller claims in the lawsuit that the accident resulted in the death of his father, Christopher, who was the father of Miller’s other son, Andrew, who lives in Indianapolis.
The lawsuit states that Andrew Miller’s father, also named Christopher, suffered severe injuries to his back and left arm.
The case is currently in mediation.
Andrew Miller, an attorney at Jones Day who is represented in the case, said in a statement that his client is “devastated” by the lawsuit.
He said his client “did nothing wrong” in the accident.
“The law firm’s legal team, who represented my client, and Andrew’s father’s family, have been very cooperative,” Miller said.
“The law firms attorneys are the first to admit that Andrew was not the driver of the vehicle involved in the incident, but they did not cause his injury.
Andrew was injured in a traffic accident, not a crash.”
Miller is seeking damages for the following: loss of earnings, loss of career, loss and damage to his reputation and business.
He also claims a $50,000 punitive award for defamation.
The accident case is the latest in a series of legal cases that involve automobile accidents in Indianapolis, including one involving an Uber driver that led to the driver’s death in January.
The driver, Eric Kwon, was killed in a crash with a passenger in his car that killed the driver, Brian O’Connor, in December.
