Attorney Profile

Travis Easton is an associate attorney at Easton & Easton, LLP, where he focuses his practice exclusively on personal injury and wrongful death litigation. Working out of the firm's office in Costa Mesa, California, he provides astute representation to clients throughout Orange County and other parts of the state for those who have incurred economic and noneconomic losses due to the negligence or recklessness of other people or entities. Mr. Easton has been admitted to practice before all California state courts since 2014.

The types of cases that Mr. Easton has worked on have arisen out of incidents involving premises liability, nursing home abuse, motor vehicle crashes, defective products, medical malpractice, and animal bites. During his relatively brief career, he has been able to obtain several favorable jury verdicts and negotiated settlements, including a policy limit settlement in a motorcycle accident in which the investigating police officer initially and incorrectly blamed Mr. Easton's client based on false witness testimony.

Mr. Easton was drawn to the practice of personal injury law at a young age, due in part to the fact that his father was and remains in that profession and is the founder of what is now Easton & Easton, LLP. He worked in various capacities for the firm, first as a college student and then while in law school, and he has spent his entire legal career there. Mr. Easton pursued his undergraduate education at Brigham Young University, where he majored in English and eventually received a Bachelor of Arts in 2011 after taking two years off and serving as a missionary in Mexico. He then went on to attend the University of San Diego School of Law and was awarded his Juris Doctor in 2014.

Bar/Professional Activity:

  • California, 2014

Verdicts/Settlements:

  • My clients were involved in a high-speed freeway accident that caused their vehicle to tip onto its side and slide for several hundreds of feet before coming to a stop.  The wife began experiencing neck and lower back pain, for which she underwent chiropractic treatment, acupuncture, and 3 Lumbar pain management injections.  She then began treatment with an Orthopedic Surgeon, who prescribed several radiological scans, before recommending a Lumbar Spine Surgery with an Anterior Interbody Reconstruction at the L4-5 with Posterior Pedicle Screw Instrumentation. Unfortunately, she was unable to undergo the surgery at that time because she and her husband were trying to have one final child through IVF because they were 40 years old and running out of time.  Consequently, she chose to try to have another child and live with the pain prior to undergoing the surgery.  Despite only being recommended for a surgery, we settled her claim for $475,000.   Her husband also began experiencing neck pain following the accident.  He participated in similar treatment as his wife, including chiropractic treatment and pain management injections.  The Orthopedic Surgeon recommended a Cervical ACDF Surgery, which he could not undergo at that time because he needed to help take care of his wife during the pregnancy.  Even though he had not undergone the surgery, we settled his claim for $275,000.  , 2018
  • I represented a woman who was involved in a disputed liability red light automobile accident.  In the months following the accident, she underwent a Cervical Epidural Injection, which caused her to suffer a MRSA infection in her cervical spine.  She underwent an emergency 10-level laminectomy surgery that saved her life.   My client was originally represented by another attorney who had the case for over 4 years.  Throughout his handling tha case and after she had undergone the emergency Laminectomy surgery, he offered to settle her claim for less than $25,000.  Fortunately, the insurance carrier was not aware of the surgery either because he had not provided them with any medical records or bills.  After her deposition, it became clear to my client that she needed to obtain different representation, at which time she contacted us and we agreed to take on her case.  We eventually learned by sending discovery, something the other attorney never did, that the Defendant had 1.25 million in insurance coverage.  We also obtained a crucial witness statement of the only impartial witness.   We then obtained all of the medical records and bills associated with her treatment, as well a life care plan before sending a policy limits settlement demand with a corresponding 998 offer to compromise, which was subsequently accepted despite the insurance company continuing to dispute liability., 2019
  • I represented a 26-year-old girl who was rear-ended at a high rate of speed. She had already suffered from pre-existing neck and lower back complaints in the years prior to the subject accident, which were significantly exacerbated by the subject accident. After undergoing pain management injections, she was recommended for a Lumbar Anterior Interbody Reconstruction/Fusion with Posterior Pedicle Screw Instrumentation.  Given her relatively young age, she did not feel that she was ready to undergo such a significant surgery at such a young age despite her unrelenting pain. Ultimately, we were able to convince the insurance carrier that despite her preexisting conditions, it was responsible for compensating her for her future lower back medical needs, which they agreed with by tendering the full $500,000 bodily injury policy limits. , 2019
  • My client was rear-ended in an automobile accident.  He subsequenbtly underwent several pain management injections before undergoing an Anterior Interbody Reconstruction Fusion at L4-5 and L5-S1 with Posterior Pedicle Screw Instrumentation/Fusion at L4-L5-S1.  Given his significant injuries, I was able to obtain the $1,000,000 available policy limits for my client.  , 2019
  • My client was involved in an automobile accident that was caused by the defendant who failed to stop for a red signal light.  My client began experiencing neck pain after the accident and underwent chiropractic treatment and pain management injections.  Because the pain continued worsening with time, he began treatment with an Orthopedic Surgeon, who recommended and performed an Anterior Cord Decompression Fusion Surgery at C5-6 and C6-7.  We resolved his claim for the $500,000 bodily injury policy limits.  , 2017
  • My client was rear-ended at a high rate of speed, causing her BMW X5 to be deemed a total loss.  Over the following months, my client underwent chiropractic treatment, a Cervical MRI that showed a 2 MM disc bulge, and  several Cervical pain management injections, which offered minimal pain relief.  She then began treatment with an orthopedic surgeon who recommended a Cervical Discogram, which resulted in concordant pain at C5-6.   The Orthopedic Surgeon then recommended an Cervical Artificial Disc Replacement Surgery that she scheduled, but was unable to undergo before learning that she was pregnant.  She continued chiropractic treatment throughout her pregnancy and resumed treatment with the orthopedic surgeon after giving birth to her child 9 months later.  After undergoing a new Cervical CT Scan, she was again recommended for the Cervical Artificial Disc Replacement Surgery, which she underwent a few weeks later.  Plaintiff continued to experience moderate pain thereafter.   Shortly thereafter, I obtained the $954,655.16 commercial policy limits for my client. (1 million dollar policy limits minus the amount she already received for her totaled vehicle).  , 2018
  • My client was involved in an automobile accident, wherein liability was disputed because the defendant's axel broke while driving on the freeway, which caused his vehicle to collide in my client's vehicle.  The defendant claimed that there was no way he could have known or protected against his axel breaking. My client underwent chiropractic treatment, MRIs, and pain management injections before beginning treatment with an Orthopedic Surgeon regarding neck and lower back pain.  Eventually, she underwent a Cervical Anterior Cord Decompression and Fusion and Spinal Cord Decompression at C4-5.  We settled her claim for the $500,000 bodily injury policy limits.  , 2017
  • We represented the mother of a homeless man that was killed by an automobile that collided into another vehicle before accelerating through a brick wall and into the decedent. There was another homeless man sitting nearby the decedent who fractured his ankle in the incident and one of the persons involved in the automobile collision was also injured.   During a mediation involving all of the claimants, we were able to convince the mediator that our client was entitled to the majority of the available policy limits and obtained $750,000 for our client., 2016
  • My client was a passenger in a vehicle when the driver lost control of the vehicle and collided into a metal sign, light pole, tree, and concrete wall.  My client was knocked unconscious for several minutes following the collision.  He began experiencing worsening neck pain that night and the following morning his parents took him to the Emergency Room where a Cervical MRI showed an unstable C6-7 Fracture Dislocation with acute grade 1 anterolisthesis and left lateral listhesis of C6 on C7 vertebra, as well as an acute traumatic full thickness tear of the anterior longitudinal ligament and posterior longitudinal ligament at the C6-7 level.  He was also diagnosed with an anterior subluxation of C5-6, as well as unilateral locked facets with facet fracture.    He underwent an Emergency Anterior Cervical Diskectomy and Fusion with Posterior Decompression, Reduction of Fracture, and Posterior Fusion at C6-7 that same day.  He was hospitalized for 5 days following the surgery before being discharged home.  My client was a sophomore in high school at the time of the collision and had just finished his first Varsity football season prior to this accident.  He already begun being recruited by PAC 12 universities prior to this accident.  Through hard work and patience, my client was able to play football the remaining two years of high school, but lost out on the chance to play college football at the Division 1 level.  We settled his case at a mediation for $1,875,000.  , 2017
  • My client was a passenger in the defendant's vehicle who drove up the center median and collided into a tree, causing the vehicle to roll over onto its roof.  Both the plaintiff and defendant were drunk at the time of the accident.  The defendant claimed that the plaintiff grabbed the steering wheel and caused the vehicle to drive onto the center median.  To further complicate matters, the Plaintiff told the investigating officer that the Defendant intentionally tried to kill them by driving the vehicle onto the center median.   The Plaintiff suffered an acute mild compression fracture of L1 with retropulsion, compression fracture of L3, and minimally displaced sternal fracture.  She wore a TSLO brace over the following 3 months and eventually it was determined that she did not need to undergo a surgery regarding the Lumbar compression fractures.  Despite the above liability issues, I resolved Plaintiff's bodily injury claim for $530,000.  , 2017
