RHOADES FAMILY SLING LAW SUITS
On October 17, 2008, PA State Senator James Rhoades was involved in a motor vehicle accident on Route 209 in Broadheadsville, PA whereas he passed away and his wife Edith Mary Rhoades was his passenger also severely injured.
Mr. Senavitis was driving the oncoming vehicle in this accident and was also severely injured in this motor vehicle. Mr. Senavitis was charge in this accident for cause and death of Senator Rhoades while intoxicated at 4X’s the legal limit as well as numerous other charges.
Yamila Yafar, the third vehicle involved was pulled on the shoulder of the road in which Senator Rhoades went around this vehicle then struck Mr. Senavitis in the oncoming lane sliding backwards hitting Ms. Yafar’s minivan.
Mr. Senavitis was imprisoned for this accident until put on trial in March of 2010 in which he was cleared of causing the accident and the death of State Senator James Rhoades but guilty of DUI and reckless endangerment which was appealed thereafter. He had spent 10 months in prison.
After the trial acquittal of Mr. Senavitis and the Rhoades and their defense claiming Yamila Yafar had no wrong doing or involvement in causing this accident the Rhoades family is now slinging law suits claiming differently.
Rhoades Family Law suits:
Mr. Senavitis for negligence in the manner in which he operated THE vehicle.
Ms. Yamila Yafar for negligence in causing this accident.
Then a third suit against Mrs. Senavitis for negligence in entrusting the vehicle to her husband.
Mr. Senavitis was driving a pick-up truck titled in Mrs. Senavitis’ name.
These are the law suits we are knowledgeable by the Rhoades family which were filed after the trial.
The week after the accident Mr. Senavitis had already obtained a lawyer for the accident knowing fully he was the victim of this accident and that Nationwide Insurance the carrier for Senator Rhoades was pushing for an immediate settlement on the vehicle and Mr. Senavitis’ injuries without the need for him to have an attorney.
One week prior to the trial Mr. Senavitis’ attorney pulled himself for representing Mr. Senavitis in this matter.
As for Yamila Yafar we have no information on her suits against any party other than he had already by compensated for her vehicle by Mr. Senavitis’ insurance company.
Mr. Senavitis’ insurance company reimbursed Yafar and Senator Rhoades for their vehicles after the accident as they were obligated by the Police Report and their Accident Reconstruction.
Mr. Senavitis has yet to be reimbursed for anything even after being acquitted.
