Car Ran Red Light/T- Bone Collision

Jury Verdict: $1,276,000.00

Our client, a pleasant forty-three year old waitress, was t-boned in a red light intersection by an Avis Rent a Car employee. The impact broke her collarbone which required surgery involving a metal plate and screws. While in the hospital, she was also diagnosed with a bruised left shoulder. She was discharged from the hospital and in the next two months was diagnosed with a torn rotator cuff in her left shoulder. She underwent three rotator cuff repair surgeries, but unfortunately all three surgeries ultimately failed. Due to the failed surgeries, she lost most of the use of her left arm and was unable to return to employment. The defense tried to argue that her torn rotator cuff was from years of her employment as a waitress lifting heavy trays, and not from the motor vehicle crash. Through expert testimony at trial, we established that the crash was indeed the cause of the torn rotator cuff and the jury agreed returning a verdict in the amount of $1,276,000.00. Prior to trial, the defense offered $526,000.00.

Passenger Side Collision With Pregnant Mother

Settlement: $35,000

Our client, who was twenty-nine weeks pregnant at the time of the wreck, was traveling across an intersection when another driver ran a red light and collided with her vehicle. She sustained neck and back injuries and treated conservatively with a chiropractor. Fortunately, her baby was born with no issues and she is moving forward with her life as a new mother. The case settled prior to litigation for $35,000 (Matter ID: 18-3916)

Brain Injury From Head On Collision

Settlement: $3,000,000.00

Our client, a hard working forty-four year old construction worker, sustained a closed-head brain injury when his vehicle was struck head-on in a motor vehicle collision. Due to his injuries, he was unable to return to work in the construction industry. The MRI performed on him at the hospital did not show any findings of brain injury. However, we were able to establish his significant brain injury through expert testimony and state of the art diagnostic medical testing. The case settled for $3,000,000.00 prior to trial. We assisted the client in structuring his settlement so he would receive an income stream monthly for the rest of his life and would not have to worry how he was going to support himself and his family. (Matter ID: 1003-001)

Rear End Accident Results In Two Neck Surgeries

Settlement one month prior to trial: $850,000.00

Our client, a hard working 34 year old county employee, was rear-ended by a landscape company truck while he was at work for the county. Our client sustained a whiplash injury to his neck and a low back injury from the collission. The low back injury ultimately resolved, but the neck complaints persisted. It was ultimately determined that he sustained ligament damage in his neck due to the impact. After over three years of conservative treatment, our client underwent a C1-C2 fusion neck surgery which initially resulted in a good outcome and relieved his symptoms. Unfortunately, the hardware in his neck failed, and he had to undergo a second neck surgery. Our client returned to work for the county and plans on a long career until his retirement. The defense hired an expert who testified, in his opinion, that the first surgery was unnecessary and, therefore, this case was nothing more than a soft tissue case. After we retained multiple expert witnesses and taking their depositions for trial, the case settled approximately one month before trial for $850,000. (Matter ID: 09-1920)
