Personal Injury Case Studies*
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) - $9,900,000 Settlement
Our client suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) due to sudden deceleration when she fell from a commercial recreational amusement ride. We alleged the injury occurred as a result of reckless operation by the operator of the ride. Our attorneys were able to establish that the ride was being operated at twice the speed allowed by the manufacturer and the operator ignored the warnings not to tow in excess of 15 mph, which was printed in bright red letters on the side of the ride. Defendant denied liability claiming that they had not acted negligently and that Plaintiff was barred from any recovery because she had signed an "Assumption of the Risk and Liability Waiver."
Negligence - $2,725,000 Settlement
This result was achieved for the client when a tire retailer installed oversized tires on his SUV without warning that oversized tires on an SUV can affect vehicle stability and handling as well as dramatically increase the risk of rollover. The oversized tires caused the SUV to go out of control and rollover on the interstate, resulting in severe injuries to the client.

Automobile Collision - $2,250,000 Settlement
This settlement was achieved for a client who sustained a severe ankle crush and shoulder injury as a result of a "head on" motor vehicle collision. Our client suffered from chronic pain and some permanent impairment as a result of the injury.
