Wrongful Death Lawsuit - $3.6 Million Jury Verdict
Our client was the son of a murdered woman, his mother, who was brutally killed by her own husband. The defendant had already been convicted for the death of his wife after striking her in the head 19 times with a hand ax and he was sentenced to a minimum of 42 years in prison. Nothing can bring back his mother, but the son wanted to seek emotional, physical and financial restitution for his severe loss.
We sought after justice and our attorneys took his wrongful death claim to court and after a two-day trial and only two hours of jury deliberation we proved that this killing was done with malicious intent and significant rage. The Son was awarded $3.6 million in damages and the deed to the couple's former home.

Near Pool Drowning - Settled for $600,000.00
This was a denied liability case involving our client who began to drown in defendant's resort-hotel swimming pool. The resort-hotel security guard witnessed our client in the first stage of drowning, but was inadequately trained and did not recognize it as drowning. The security guard mistakenly thought our client was "showing off" so he walked away. When he returned, the security guard observed our client in the final stages of drowning. Our client survived, but suffered permanent injuries.
This was an extraordinarily difficult and complex case involving legal issues concerning lifeguard requirements, safety issues, drowning prevention, hotel management, security, medical causation and damages.
After years of litigation, discovery, expert retention, depositions and a Motion for Summary Judgment, we settled the case for $600,000.00

We took over the case and aggressively litigated against Mercury Insurance and its team of defense attorneys and experts. We successfully settled the case for $95,000.00 shortly before trial.
