 Success Stories

Lupe T. was driving on a rural winding back road in Oceanside, California when she inadvertently crossed the center divider and hit an oncoming car head-on. The driver of the other car sustained injuries and recovered policy limits of $15K from her insurance policy. Lupe sustained minor injuries, however her infant son was tragically killed while in a car seat as a result of the accident.

She sought legal representation regarding the loss of her infant son's life. After being rejected by several attorneys, I decided to examine her case. I discovered that the curvature of the road and other factors may have been a cause of the accident which would make the city of Oceanside and the county liable. With the assistance of a large law firm in Long Beach, we were able to reach a settlement of $450K for the family. (1998)

Marlene M was involved in a "fender bender" on a residential street. She was rear-ended by an automobile going less than 15 MPH. She immediately complained of back pain and sought and received $3000 chiropractic treatment. Although still complaining of back pain, she wished to settle her claim. When the insurance company offered only the medicals, she sought legal representation.

She was then examined by an orthopedic physician and it was found she had a herniated disc. After the insurance company did there own independent medical examination (IME, ) this was confirmed. Since she had no history of this condition, the insurance company quickly settled her claim for $135K. (2003)

Ryan M was involved in an accident when a car hit him while he was riding his motorcycle. The witness statements conflicted and the police report was adverse to Ryan. The insurance company offered zero. At trial, Ryan was awarded $108K by a jury in San Diego. (2006)

Larry P. lost his leg as it had to be amputated after a safe he was moving fell on him. It was shown that he was on the property illegally at the time of the removal of the safe AND he did NOT follow proper safety procedures when he secured the safe to the dolly. The attorney he had initially retained bailed out of the case one (1) month before the statute of limitations was to run. He then contacted my office. Through the assistance of a high powered law firm in San Diego, the insurance company settled the case for $57.5K. (2010)
