Issues: Appellant's Statement of the Issues:
Where a wrongful death verdict is returned in favor of a child's surviving parents and in favor of the child for his conscious pain and suffering prior to death, are the parents entitled to recover the liability limits under the "per occurrence" portion of the liability policy in addition to the "per person" liability limit previously received?

Appellee's Statement of the Issues:
Can the Nelsons, asserting multiple claims arising from the injuries to, and death of, Matthew E. Nelson, recover from this particular Nodak Automaster policy more than the limit of bodily injury liability coverage provided for "each person" under that policy?

Appellee's Statement of the Issues:
Whether the damages recoverable for claims brought for the injury and death of one individual involved in an accident in which there were multiple injured persons is subject to the "each person" limit of liability provided by the at-fault driver's liability policy?
