Notable Results In Personal Injury

Below are summaries of a few of the personal injury cases we have handled, and the results we have achieved. Each client’s circumstances are unique, and the results below are not intended to suggest what the result will be in any other case.

  Traumatic Brain Injury RESULT: $5.2 million recovery
The plaintiff was hit by a city bus while crossing the street. The plaintiff, who was in her mid-40s, suffered a traumatic brain injury.
 

The defendant claimed that the plaintiff’s injuries were not that severe. The defendant’s medical experts, a psychiatrist, psychologist and neurologist, all testified that the plaintiff would fully recover from her brain injury.

  Orthopedic Injury RESULT: $1 million recovery
The plaintiff was injured during an employer-sponsored team-building exercise at the defendant’s mountain camp. The plaintiff suffered back injuries after participating in a “low ropes” course.
 

The plaintiff alleged that the course was poorly supervised and that plaintiff’s group received very little training on how to navigate the course.

 

The defendant claimed that the plaintiff was not hurt at its camp, and it was not responsible for the injuries, because the plaintiff did not immediately complain that he was hurt, and there were no witnesses to the specific injury-causing event.

  Traumatic Brain Injury/Orthopedic Injury RESULT: $2 million recovery
The plaintiff was hit by an SUV as he was crossing the street. The plaintiff suffered a broken pelvis and collar bone and a mild traumatic brain injury.
 

The defendant disputed the extent of the plaintiff’s injuries and produced a surveillance video, taken one month before trial, of the plaintiff walking several miles at a brisk pace. The defendant also disputed the plaintiff’s lost earnings claim, as he was undocumented and self-employed.

  Traumatic Brain Injury/Orthopedic Injury RESULT: $1.55 million recovery
The defendant’s employee made a sudden U-turn while driving a company truck and collided with the plaintiff’s Porsche. The plaintiff suffered a traumatic brain injury and broken leg. The plaintiff had no memory of the accident.
 

The defendant disputed the cause of the accident, claiming that the plaintiff was trying to pass the defendant’s truck illegally. The defendant also disputed the plaintiff’s claimed brain injury, arguing the fact that the plaintiff returned to work as a sales executive within two weeks after the accident showed he had no lingering cognitive problems.
