Settlements and Cases


$1.25 Million

Settlement For
Medical Malpractice

Our client had a lumpectomy to treat breast cancer. After the procedure, she was cancer free for several years. Unfortunately, she subsequently felt a new mass in the same location on the same breast. After consulting with her physician, she had a biopsy performed on the mass. The reviewing pathologist erroneously identified the mass as an invasive carcinoma (cancer) when in fact it was non-malignant fibrocystic breast tissue. Based on the pathologist’s report, the entire breast was removed despite the fact that there was no cancer.


$810,000

Settlement For
Pedestrian Injured by Trash Truck

Our client sustained serious injuries when the driver of a sanitation truck negligently backed over him. Our aggressive use of discovery tactics revealed that the driver had been poorly trained and had not followed written company policies and procedures regarding the operation of his truck around pedestrians.


$700,000

Settlement For
Medical Malpractice

Our client’s infant did not survive child birth. Although she had previously delivered her last baby by way of Caesarean Section, our client was told that the birth of her third child would be vaginal and would be managed by a mid-wife rather than an obstetrician. A timely Caesarean Section was not performed and the baby died of Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy. Our efforts in discovery revealed that our client’s health maintenance organization’s decisions regarding the management her client’s child birth was dictated by economic concerns rather than the well-being of the mother and infant.


$650,000

Settlement For
Pedestrian Killed by 18 Wheeler

Our client’s family member was a long haul truck driver who was killed when he was struck by a tractor trailer truck. At the time, his vehicle was disabled and had been pulled into the emergency lane of the highway. We were able to prove that the driver who killed our client’s family member had falsified his driver logs, suffered from chronic obstructive sleep apnea and thus, was extremely fatigued and suffered from narcolepsy at the time of the incident.


$425,000

Settlement For
Patient Falls while in a Rehab Center

Our client was in a rehabilitation center to aid him in recovery from a spinal cord injury. Although our client had been deemed a fall risk, a nurse allowed our client to walk to the restroom, on just his fourth day at the facility, without assistance. Unfortunately, our client was not stable enough to hold himself upright and fell resulting in a subdural hematoma that caused him to be unconscious for several weeks.


$4.49 Million

Settlement For
Large Truck Collision

Our client, a successful professional, suffered numerous catastrophic injuries when her sports utility vehicle (SUV)was struck head on by a large truck driven by the employee of a large asphalt company. At the time of the collision, the driver of the truck was eating breakfast and was distracted. Through the use of aggressive discovery tactics, we were able to determine that the company was negligent in failing to properly train the employee, who had a very unsafe driving record and had demonstrated that he was irresponsible. The case settled prior to trial.


$1.5 Million

Settlement For
Pedestrian Killed by Unsecured Materials

We represented a family who lost their mother when metal pipes, which were unsecured, blew off the back of a truck as it traveled on a major highway. The metal materials struck our client, a mother of five, in the head. Unfortunately, our clients’ mother, who was walking on the side of the road, was pronounced dead within hours of first being struck. The case settled prior to trial.


$800,000

Settlement For
Wrongful Death by Food Poisoning

Our client attended a company sponsored event where food was supplied by an outside vendor. The client was allergic to shellfish. The catering company misinformed our client that one of the dishes provided did not contain shellfish, when in fact it did. The client had a severe allergic reaction which resulted in her death. We were able to prove the catering company was negligent.


$1 Million

Settlement For
Burn Injury by Scalding

Our client was the resident of a seniors’ tower in metro Atlanta. The owners had renovated almost the entire building, except the major systems, including the elevators, HVAC, electrical and plumbing systems. The boiler system which supplied hot water to the residents of the building did not have a thermostatic mixing valve on its supply side to prevent water from being supplied to the residents at scalding temperatures. Our client, who was elderly and suffered from diabetic neuropathy in her legs, was burned over 20% of her body when she sat down in a tub of scalding water. Through discovery, we were able to show that although the owners were aware that there was a high risk of scalding, they chose not to modernize the hot water system and make it safe for residents.


$183,500

Settlement For
Whistleblower

A government employee “blew the whistle.” In an act of retaliation, our client’s pay was reduced.
