Top Settlements and Verdicts
This commercial case, which won a $300,000 settlement, was made possible by securing witness statements, threatening to uncover company negligence, and pushing on the federal regulations. Our client was rear-ended by an 18-wheeler and required low back surgery. We uncovered a history of similar conduct from the trucking company.
Our client suffered head and back injuries in a low-speed collision that caused her pain and loss of bladder control. We were able to prove that her injuries were caused by the crash even though she had been involved in a more serious collision two years prior. Initially, the defense did not believe that the injuries were possible given the low-speed nature of the collision. We were able to convince them to take responsibility with a thorough analysis of medical history and interviews with our client's friends and family.
Our client was injured when a commercial vehicle backed into his vehicle in a parking lot. Our client's left shoulder was injured in the collision, and he required surgery.
Our client was traveling on the interstate when she came to a stop due to traffic. The defendant, driving an 18-wheeler, failed to pay attention and rear-ended our client. The impact caused our client to rear-end the car in front of her.
The defendant turned left in front of the vehicle in which our client was a passenger. The impact injured our client's neck and left eye. The eye injury was complex and required extensive medical intervention.
In this commercial case, our client's vehicle sustained only minor property damage. However, we were able to get a great settlement thanks to Rapid Response Team, who secured video footage of the crash.
The defendant ran a stop sign and hit our client's vehicle hard enough to push it into the yard of a nearby house. Our client's injuries included his right arm, neck, and back. The insurer refused to tender their $30k policy, but they ended up paying five times that amount.
Our client pulled over to check on his trailer. As he stood next to the trailer, an 18-wheeler sideswiped the trailer. The impact of the crash pushed the vehicle into our client. The 18-wheeler driver heavily disputed the facts of the wreck. We were able to recreate the scene of the wreck to show that the defendant's version was inconsistent.
The defendant turned in front of our client, causing a collision. Our client sustained injuries to his back and leg, which aggravated a previous leg injury. The insurer paid nearly three times the policy amount.
