Settlements and Verdicts
Settlement - Motor Vehicle Accident. A 33-year-old man was paralyzed as a result of a one-car auto accident in the rain near Barstow, California. We claimed the State of California negligently designed the highway and failed to safely adapt the area to prevent problems. We had to overcome a lengthy delay in properly filing the lawsuit by the prior attorney before it came to our office. We successfully argued that the problems were a consequence of improper medical treatment while at the same time, proving that the State of California had failed to properly design the road.
Settlement - Motor Vehicle Accident. This settlement was obtained for an individual who suffered catastrophic injuries in an car accident.
Verdict – This reward was paid for injuries sustained in a schoolyard accident by a child.

Based on this misdiagnosis, the hospital did not move him to another qualified hospital, which could have prevented his condition from deteriorating. This mistake caused him severe spinal cord injuries.
