Verdicts/Settlements (Case Results):
  • $2,000,000 - Settlement for a woman on an open $15,000 policy who struck her head on the driver’s side window when T-boned. She suffered a concussion with no brain bleed. Virtually all medical care was through health insurance. With only a $15,000 policy limit, this open policy settlement represents over 133 times the policy limit, a huge multiplier., 2021
  • $300,000 - Settlement for a man who lost control of his motorcycle on a roadway that had loose material on it. The initial injury presented as a sprain, but unbeknownst to him (and his doctors), he had suffered a hairline fracture of his cuboid bone, which healed and led to acute-onset arthritis. The solution was a fusion of two bones in the foot, and resolution of his symptoms. All but $20,000 of this settlement represented general damages., 2023
  • $390,000 - Settlement for a woman who suffered an ankle fracture when walking towards a wedding at a rustic venue. There was evidence of alcohol use and inattention, and the entirety of the settlement represents general damages (no past or future medical expenses included in settlement)., 2023
  • $400,000 - Settlement for a man who suffered a dislocated shoulder and humeral head fracture due to an auto v. pedestrian injury. Medical expenses were just shy of $12,000 total, with all but the latest physical therapy care handled through Medicare., 2023
  • $852,000 - Settlement for a man who sustained cervical injuries when rear ended by a big rig vehicle. Pre-incident issues were addressed with great care, establishing an aggravation of pre-existing symptom backdrop and basis for surgical recommendations., 2023
  • $500,000 - Settlement for a woman who was involved in a 2 mph Delta-v (change in velocity) collision, but who alleged extensive spinal injuries as a result. She had 3 pre-incident and 2-post incident accidents other than this subject incident, all of which occurred within a three year period., 2022
  • $6,000,000 - Settlement on a wrongful death case involving a truck accident, wherein our clients received moneys to compensate them for the loss of love, companionship, society, comfort, protection, care and guidance of their loved one. The moneys received by our clients have allowed them to rebuild after their terrible loss., 2022
  • $1,500,000 - Settlement for a woman on an alleged CRPS case after suffering a slip and fall at a business. She began experiencing CRPS-like symptoms in her left foot, with heavy dispute. Liability was also heavily disputed, given the nature of the allegation and the absence of objective injury evidence., 2022
  • $1,000,000 - Global settlement amongst multiple claimants who were injured in a two-vehicle incident, for which liability was disputed to the end. Ultimately, the carriers tendered both substantial policies, resulting in a total settlement for all claimants for the combined limits., 2020
  • $390,000 - Settlement for an elderly woman who sustained a concussion when she was hit by a car after tending to the victim of another car accident. This result was unique in that the vast majority of the settlement funds came not from the tortfeasor who actually hit the elderly woman (that tortfeasor had a limited policy), but from the tortfeasor who caused the first accident to which our client was tending as a Good Samaritan., 2020
  • $387,500 - Settlement for a motorcyclist whose bike skid out from under him when he rode over a highway entrance covered in "ravel," the natural byproduct of a specific type of roadway preservation work done the prior day. He suffered a torn shoulder labrum, which was successfully repaired. This result is a stellar one considering the limited injury and liability challenges presented in the case., 2020
  • $4,500,000 - Settlement for an elderly man who suffered catastrophic injuries when a vehicle collided into him in a crosswalk. Liability was initially disputed, and the policy was opened, 2016
  • $1,000,000 - Cervical Fusion trip and fall incident, with significant pre-existing injuries., 2019
  • $500,000 - Settlement for a young girl who injured herself on an RV step. The settlement also allowed for a buy back of the vehicle pursuant to lemon law allegations., 2019
  • $1,017,500 - Trial verdict for an elderly man who broke his arm while trying to turn off a defective gate. The defense blamed our client and offered $175,000, 2017
  • $500,000 - Trial verdict for a man injured when his work truck collided into a left turning passenger vehicle. Our client underwent a lumbar microdiscectomy. The defense offered just $85,000, 2015

  • $265,000 - Settlement for a mother who suffered a wrist injury in a car crash. The defense disputed insurance coverage and offered only $15,000. Coverage boiled down to one signature on one document that was found in discovery to be missing, 2017
