Motorcycle accident Settlement
On a sunny afternoon in San Diego, Plaintiff was running an errand on his motorcycle. As he approached slowing traffic due to a red traffic light just ahead of him, a van driven by defendant all of a sudden took a left hand turn in front of him, violating his right of way. Plaintiff struck the side of the van, flew over the hood and landed 20 feet from the impact. Plaintiff sustained significant injuries to his right leg which included lacerations, loss of tissue and fracture. Plaintiff was also a sufferer of bone marrow cancer. With various experts, our firm was able to prove that trauma to plaintiff’s leg caused cancer to worsen adding additional general damages to plaintiff’s case.
Assault & Battery/Negligence Settlement

The son hosted this party, which involved alcohol and other illegal substances. Plaintiff was assaulted and battered sustaining serious head injuries, facial scarring and disfigurement. Award was paid by the homeowner as well as various homeowner insurance policies for the individuals responsible for the injuries.

Truck Accident/Rollover Settlement
Plaintiff was an unrestrained passenger in a large truck driven by defendant. Due to a wet roadway, defendant lost control of his vehicle causing it to roll and eject plaintiff.

Experts were retained to prove that plaintiff would have sustained even more serious injuries if she were wearing a seatbelt. Case settled day before trial.
