NATURE OF CASE: Personal injury litigation resulting from a motor vehicle accident.
OUTCOME: Case settled for $1.75 million. Eight months into the case, and in the face of a $2,000,000 demand, the defense offered $50,000. Two weeks before trial, after all expert discovery had been completed, the defense paid plaintiff a $1.75 million cash settlement.
ATTORNEY: William Berman of Berman & Reidel, LLP, 12264 El Camino Real, Suite 202, San Diego, California, 92130, (858) 350-8855, represented the plaintiff.
ATTORNEY COMMENT: “Richard and his staff were incredibly insightful in helping to develop the damages associated with Plaintiff’s inability to maintain employment following the incident. Although my client did not have an extensive work history, Richard and his staff were able to demonstrate the likely economic loss as a result of her injuries. Without their thorough preparedness, the settlement obtained would not have been possible.”
