We are a personal injury firm with experience providing effective, compassionate representation. On this page, you can find brief descriptions of a few of the successful results our firm has achieved.
Apple Valley Nursing Home Death: When this nursing home resident was sent unescorted to a medical appointment she was dependent on oxygen tanks and other assistance. While waiting for a ride home she fell from her wheelchair and suffered what became fatal injuries. The family received a large settlement approaching $1 million.
Asbestos Settlement: After a lifetime in the sheetrock business this hardworking family man developed mesothelioma which rapidly took his life. His surviving children made trust fund claims in excess of $1 million.
Exploding Truck Tire: A trucking company failed to properly maintain and inspect their trucks, resulting in the brakes on one of their trucks catching fire as it traveled down Highway 99. When it pulled into a truck yard, the tire exploded, breaking several bones in a bystander’s right hand. After a week long jury trial, the jury awarded the bystander almost $400,000.
Bass Lake Sheriff Hits CHP: When two emergency vehicles collided at Bass Lake a car wrapped around a tree and went up in flames. The occupant was pulled safely out yet sustained serious personal injuries. After a one week trial, a verdict of several hundred thousand dollars resulted.
Pedestrian Injured at Tulare County Fairgrounds: A pedestrian was walking along the sidewalk of the Tulare County Fairgrounds building and did not notice the sudden drop off causing her to fall forward and land on her shoulder. There was no warning or guard rail. She tore her rotator cuff. The case settled for $220,000.
Woman Attacked By Three Dogs: An woman arrived to her home when she was attacked by three dogs who had escaped from her neighbor’s backyard. Dog bite injuries were so severe that she spent several days in the hospital. The case settled for $297,000.
Cervical Fusion: The defendant ran a stop sign at high speed, injuring our client, who later had to undergo a cervical fusion on her neck. The case settled for $350,000.
Stairway Collapse: Our client heard noises from a dilapidated barn and went to investigate. Upon coming down from the top of the wooden stairway of the barn, two of the wooden steps gave way causing a gash in his left leg. The injury to his left leg caused hematoma, swelling, and a MRSA infection, requiring surgery. The case settled for $210,000.
In Utero Injury: Our pregnant client was hit by a water truck near Lindsay resulting in injury to her unborn child. We were able to demonstrate the connection to the accident and a large recovery resulted. $766,196.
Highway 41 Accident: A family on the way to the family house in Cambia hydroplaned across Highway 41 and struck two vehicles. Our client was in the second vehicle. She witnessed the death of her niece and also shattered her foot. We were able to show that the California Department of Transportation was liable for an improper slope in the roadway which was noted in their own documents. $582,500.
Big Rig Accident: Two farm produce haulers were barreling northbound on Highway 99 near Merced when one vehicle made a sudden lane change in front of my client. Our client was run off the road and fractured his spine. We were able to show that this was a hit-and-run accident although there had been no contact between the vehicles. A substantial settlement resulted. $375,000.
Brain Damage: Plaintiff was driving a farm vehicle service truck north of Visalia when four farm laborers in their employer’s truck ran a stop sign at full speed. Mr. Will’s mental capacity was severely affected and a large monthly settlement was negotiated. Lifetime Annuity.
Driver Blows Stop Sign: Plaintiff injured her neck when another driver blew a stop sign and collided with her. Plaintiff treated with a chiropractor for one month after the accident, but stopped treating and tried to go about her life. After over seven months, the pain was too great for her to continue her daily activities, and she resumed treatment. She then discovered that she had a bulging disc and nerve root impingement in her neck. We were able to settle her case for the other driver’s policy limit of $250,000.
Grandmother Bitten By Dog: While babysitting a friend’s child, a grandmother was bitten by a German Shepherd. The dog bit the woman twice, once on her thigh and once on her groin. The bite on the thigh required 9 stitches to close. Her medical bills totaled just over $1,000. We were able to settle the case for $200,000.
Merced Restaurant: Our elderly client fell while exiting a Merced restaurant and fractured her arm. We were able to prove a building code violation in reference to a handrail and recover for her loss. $55,000.
Wal-Mart: Again this case involved an elderly female who this time was shopping after church on a Sunday for a toy for her grandchild. She fell over some merchandise that had been left protruding into the aisle. Initially, Wal-Mart took the position that merchandise is never stacked on the floor. After several visits to the store to photograph their constant state of upheaval and chaos, the case settled. $115,000.
Motorcycle Accident: Our client was riding his motorcycle westbound on Mineral King in Visalia just east of Highway 198 when an elderly gentleman exiting the freeway cut across 3 lanes of traffic to make a right turn directly into his path. Severe injuries resulted. We demonstrated that the California Vehicle code requires a right turn from the lane farthest to the right and that therefore the driver was in violation of the law.
Bicycle Accident: Our client was commuting home on his bicycle one night when he was picked off on the shoulder of the road by a driver who claimed that the bike “came out of nowhere.” Our client injured his fingers in the accident and required several surgeries. We were able to establish the negligence of the driver. $50,000.
Unruly Dogs: Our client was riding his bicycle along the St. John’s Parkway in Visalia when a dog got under his wheels causing him to fall. The dog was running loose in violation of Visalia’s leash ordinance and a recovery resulted. $25,000.
Porterville Motorcycle Accident: A loan broker out seeking business made a turn directly into the leg of a motorcycle rider who at that moment was passing on her left. Traumatic brain injury and an amputated leg resulted. The settlement was in the mid seven figures.
Rear-Ender On 99: When this claimant slowed on Highway 99 near Visalia he was run over by a commuter whose vehicle threw his motorcycle and his body hundreds of feet forward. Multiple fractures resulted. Settlement near $1,000,000 resulted.
Dog Ran Into Path Of Cyclist: A cyclist riding in rural Kings County went head over heels when a dog jumped into his path. Two surgeries later the case settled for almost $200,000.
