$3.215 Million Settlement
Auto/Truck Collision
April 2019
The plaintiff was driving a car and slowing down, behind a large tractor-trailer. A truck hit the plaintiff’s car from behind, leading to the plaintiff’s car being pushed into and under the tractor-trailer. The issues in the case were whether the collision caused brain damage, the amount of the plaintiff’s medical bills and the projections for future needs.


$1.175 Million Settlement
Auto Accident/Pedestrian Injury
January 2019
The plaintiff was a pedestrian who was hit by a car when she was about halfway across the street, in or adjacent to a crosswalk. After she was struck, she was dragged under the car. The issues in the case included the inadequacy of the driver’s underlying insurance policy and whether or not the plaintiff saw the car approaching her as she continued to walk into the crosswalk.


$3 Million Settlement
Loss of Consortium After Car Accident/Traumatic Brain Injury
April 2017
The plaintiff was on the way back from dropping his son at school when a commercial van pulled in front of his vehicle. He suffered a closed head injury in the resulting collision.

After the accident, he continued running his businesses, managed his various investments, and drove himself around regularly. Over the next two years, however, he developed memory and cognitive issues.

The plaintiff’s behavior grew increasingly erratic, and he began to become forgetful, eventually becoming unable to work or manage his affairs. He became more distant from his family and had frequent violent outbursts.

The plaintiff alleged that the collision caused a traumatic brain injury that resulted in the development of traumatically induced fronto-temporal dementia.
The case settled at mediation four weeks prior to trial, including a $3 million settlement for loss of consortium allocated to the plaintiff’s spouse and four minor children.


$750,000 Settlement
Medical Malpractice/Wrongful Death
January 2017
The plaintiff was the estate of an 82-year-old man with pre-existing conditions who died after two surgeries to remove squamous cell carcinoma.
The plaintiff claimed that, after the first surgery, the treating plastic surgeon prematurely closed the patient’s wound before receiving the final pathology report. The report indicated invasive squamous cell carcinoma with deep perineural involvement. After the report was received, the plastic surgeon performed a second surgery to remove deep margins.

A second pathology report indicated that there was no residual tumor. The plaintiff argued that, after the second surgery, the plastic surgeon failed to follow up or recommend follow-up, allowing the cancer to spread and, ultimately leading to the patient’s death.

The surgeon argued that there was no need for follow-up because the pathological evaluation indicated no residual tumor.


$1.25 Million Settlement
Motorcycle Accident
November 2016
The plaintiff was riding his motorcycle down a main road and had the right of way, when the defendant’s car entered the intersection and struck the rear wheel of his motorcycle. The defendant claimed that she did not see the plaintiff when she proceeded into the intersection. The collision threw the plaintiff from his motorcycle, leading to serious injuries to his right leg, clavicle and ribs. He required extensive medical treatment and multiple surgeries, with some of his injuries resulting in permanent loss of function.
