Noteworthy Cases
$1,050,000 Settlement

A 40-year-old man was severely injured in a head-on motor vehicle collision while operating his motor vehicle westbound on the Mass Pike near the Palmer exit. The client suffered significant internal injuries to the spleen, requiring emergency surgery. The client also suffered fractures of his hip, elbow, and knee with permanent impairments.  Client was determined to be totally and permanently disabled as a result of the accident caused by a drunk driver.  A successful claim was brought against a liquor establishment believed to have over-served the driver of the at-fault automobile. The at-fault driver’s policy limits of $50,000 were also successfully recovered, and a structured settlement was set up to guarantee the permanently injured man with lifetime income.

$85,000 Settlement

A 60-year-old woman suffered a torn meniscus as a result of a collision caused by the negligent operation of a commercial dump truck.  Following knee surgery, the plaintiff was left with on going knee pain.

$120,000 Settlement

A 10-year-old boy suffered an injury to his eye as a result of an airbag explosion following a collision.  The minor claimant was a front seat passenger in his mother’s van when their vehicle was hit head-on on a public roadway.  The injury to the minor’s eye (iris) did not cause any significant effect on his vision, but left a cosmetic defect to the iris.

$120,000 Settlement
