The clients' portion of the settlement after payment of medical expenses, case expenses, and attorney fees is expected to be slightly over one million dollars., 2020
  • Jury Verdict of Over 115K in Disputed Motor Vehicle Collision Case in Montgomery County. Client K.M. was driving home when a car made an illegal left turn right in front of him. K.M.’s car violently collided with the other vehicle at about 40mph. Both cars suffered extensive damage and were totaled. The police officer who investigated the crash found the other driver wholly at fault for causing the wreck. During the crash K.M. hit both knees on the dashboard. He was transported from the crash on a stretcher to the ER. Over the next year and a half K.M. had several visits with an orthopedic specialist. He went to physical therapy and after 2 sets of MRI’s he was diagnosed with a torn meniscus. He had fluid drained and received painful shots in his knees and was told he would eventually need knee surgery. K.M. had over ten thousand dollars in medical bills, and after giving K.M. the run-around for almost two years, the other driver's insurance offered him three thousand dollars to settle his claim. After K.M. hired Leo Kishinevsky to represent him, the insurance company eventually increased their pretrial offer to twenty one thousand dollars as its “top and final” offer. On the advice of Mr. Kishinevsky, K.M. rejected the offer and opted to go to trial. After a 2-day trial, a Montgomery County jury returned with a verdict for K.M. in excess of 115 thousand dollars. After the payment of attorney fees, medical expenses, and case costs, K.M. received over forty nine thousand dollars in his pocket.  , 2019
