OVERTURNED BUS $5 Million
Our clients were co-workers at an elementary school. They were passengers
in a shuttle bus on a day trip when the bus driver lost control of the
bus, causing it to overturn. Without seat belts, the clients were violently
tossed around the inside of the bus, sustaining severe injuries including
a broken clavicle, knee injuries requiring surgery and low back injuries
requiring surgery. This was a hard fought case in litigation for over
a year. The case settled at mediation on the eve of trial and these clients
were compensated a total of $5 million (policy limit) for their injuries.
REAR END COLLISION $1 MILLION
Our client was stopped at a red light when he was rear ended by a contractor’s
truck. He suffered a severe neck injury that required surgery. This case
was in litigation but settled at mediation a few months before trial and
the client was compensated $1 million (policy limit) for his injury.
BICYCLIST STRUCK BY CAR $375,000
Our client was riding his bicycle on the sidewalk in a residential neighborhood
and was crossing the street in a marked crosswalk when a driver rolled
through a stop sign while attempting a right turn. The driver was looking
left for oncoming traffic and never saw the client on his bicycle. Despite
clear liability, the driver’s insurance company fought the case
and tried to blame the bicyclist for not walking his bike through the
crosswalk. Although this was a low speed collision, it caused the client
to fall and he sustained a wrist fracture. The case settled without litigation
OVERTURNED VEHICLE COLLISION $325,000
Our client was involved in a rollover accident caused by an inattentive
driver who made an unsafe lane change. The client sustained a serious
wrist injury that required surgery. This case was in litigation but settled
before trial and the client was compensated $325,000 for her injury.
DRUNK DRIVER COLLISION $175,000
The client was rear ended by a drunk driver who was driving a company vehicle.
Our investigation located the DUI arresting officer’s body cam footage
which showed just how drunk the driver was. Our investigation proved the
company knew the driver had a history of drinking problems and we forced
the company to take responsibility for the injuries caused by giving this
employee a company vehicle. The case was in litigation but settled before
trial and the client was compensated $175,000 for her injuries.
PEDESTRIAN HIT BY MOTORCYCLE $100,000
This client was 13 years old when he was hit by a motorcycle as he crossed
the street in front of his school. The client and the motorcyclist were
both injured. Because the child crossed the road against a red traffic
signal, the motorcyclist hired an attorney and threatened to sue her and
her son for his injuries. Our investigation located witnesses that stated
the motorcyclist was speeding through a school zone just as kids were
getting out. I got the motorcyclist’s claim dismissed and we forced
the motorcyclist’s insurance policy to pay $100,000 (policy limit)
which was used to establish a trust fund for the client.
DRUNK GOLF CART CRASH $100,000
This client was playing golf with friends (and they were all drinking on
the course) when the driver ran the cart off the path, causing the cart
to overturn. The client was thrown head first from the cart and sustained
a serious knee injury that required surgery. The driver’s insurance
company fought this case because everyone including the client was drinking,
but we forced them to pay $100,000 (policy limit) to compensate the client
for her injuries.
T-BONE COLLISION $100,000
The client t-boned another vehicle after the teen driver blew through a
stop sign right in front of the client. The client sustained a serious
neck injury. The teen driver’s insurance company fought this case
hard and this case was in litigation for over a year. The case eventually
settled on the eve of trial for $100,000 (policy limit).
