Verdicts/Settlements (Case Results):
  • 325k Car Accident case, 2019
  • Slip and Fall Accident - $700,000 Settlement. On the afternoon of March 6, 2017, an employee of a convenience store had mopped the floor of the premises but failed to place wet floor signs in the area that were mopped to warn customers of the potential hazard. Shortly thereafter, our client entered the same convenience store to purchase a beverage. As he walked toward the beverage cooler, our client suddenly slipped into a pool of water on the floor, causing him to fall to the ground and severely injury his back. Our client underwent extensive medical treatment to his back, including multiple surgeries. He struggled with the pain in his back for several months with little relief. We helped our client find the right doctors who provided excellent medical treatment using cutting edge technology to treat his back and minimize the pain he suffered from on a daily basis. By the time we were done with his case, we reached a large six-figure settlement and got the attention of the insurance company after months of not receiving any offers despite their knowledge of the claim and the severity of our client's injuries. We’re happy to say that our client got the justice he deserves., 2019
  • Tractor Trailer Accident - 1.25 Million Settlement. Our client nearly lost his life when he was hit by a tractor trailer while driving his moped. Fortunately, he was wearing a helmet because he would not be with us today if he had not. He would not have been present for the birth of his daughter nor would he have been here to help raise his family. After undergoing multiple surgeries I am happy to say that he is not only with us, but that he is healthy. We fought tirelessly to get him the compensation he deserved when the trucking company and the truck driver failed to take responsibility for their actions. Furthermore, since the crash happened in a contributory negligence state, my client was faced with the risk of no compensation if one juror believed he contributed to the accident. I worked with this client for over 3 years. I met his family and I was by his side at the hospital when he was fighting for his life. This case was personal. It brings me immense joy to know that I played a significant role in my client's recovery and his financial future., 2020
