One example of our results:
We helped a client conclude a seven-year battle arising out of serious injuries he sustained in a motor vehicle accident. He was stopped at the bottom of an on-ramp that was under construction. He was rear-ended by the car behind him. We did not stop for our client after receiving the insurance policy limits from the car that struck our client. We expanded our investigation and pursued the companies that were responsible for the construction design changes to the on-ramp and signs. We obtained a verdict from a jury for our client. While we could have stopped there, we always go the distance in obtaining compensation for clients. We realized that the jury did not compensate our client enough and he should be compensated further. After the trial, we filed legal motions and convinced the judge our client's injuries were worth a total award of $3,160,983.
