MINOR/CHILD
ACCIDENT

$142,000

Our 11 year old client was a passenger in a friend’s vehicle that was t-boned by a careless driver. Among numerous injuries our client had shoulder and arm pain as well as bruises throughout his body. His parents were unsure what to do and we guided them through the process, ultimately finding 3 separate insurance policies from which we could make recoveries. Ultimately, we were able to resolve the claims and even establish a fund for our young client that he can access when he turns 18.

DOG BITE/SCRATCH

$20,000

Our client, a young woman visiting a friend’s house, was scratched on the leg by her friend’s dog. Despite having very little treatment for the scratch, we were able to show the effect this incident had on our client and were even able to get the homeowners insurance to increase their offer once we filed suit.

SLIP AND FALL AT RETAIL STORE

$72,000

Our elderly client turned a corner and slipped on a slick substance on the floor. The store had failed to clean up the substance or warn customers of its presence. Our client, unfortunately, sustained injuries to her back and left knee. We obtained a $72,000 settlement for the injuries. 

TRUCKING ACCIDENT

$350,000

While our client slept in the sleeper berth of his truck-tractor and semi-trailer combination a second truck-tractor and semi-trailer combination rear-ended our client’s trailer causing both vehicles to burst into flames. Luckily, our client avoided any burn injuries but did sustain injuries to his neck, back and knees. We took on several large trucking companies and were able to settle the claim at mediation and avoid trial for the client.

PREMISES LIABILIT

$20,000

While our client was shopping for new granite counter tops for her home, she was left unattended in the warehouse where a large slab of granite fell on her leg, injuring her knee. Thankfully she avoided permanent damage and we resolved her claim.
SLIP & FALL

$28,500

Our hungry client went to a popular fast food restaurant and slipped and fell immediately upon entering the premises. It turns out that she was the first customer of the day and the employees had just finished mopping the floor and unlocked the door for customers but did not put any warning signs out to advise the floors were wet. Thankfully we were able to negotiate a resolution for our client.
WRONGFUL DEATH

$420,000

The family of the deceased motorcycle rider made a claim against the vehicle that caused the accident. The insurance company tried arguing that failure to wear a helmet was the cause of death but we were able to retain an expert to refute that and provide the family some comfort in those difficult times.

SLIP & FALL

$20,000

Our client, a nurse at an elderly care facility, slipped and fell in the hallway after another nurse had tracked water down the hall following a resident’s shower. The facility tried arguing our client was an employee and only entitled to workers’ compensation. But we were able to prove she was an independent contractor – not an employee – and therefore entitled to recovery.
DIMINISHED VALUE

$10,000

Our client’s Toyota was damaged in an accident and repaired. We were able to retain an expert to testify that the loss in value due to the accident was $10,000. We were then able to recover the full amount for our client.
INSIRANCE BREACH OF CONTRACT

$137,500

The insurance company ignored our reasonable requests and time deadlines exposing their insured to a judgment. We were able to get the insurance carrier to pay in excess of their policy limits to avoid a breach of contract claim by their insured.

$5,500

on Chevrolet vehicle.

MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT IN CHANDLER

$365,000
