The following are real life clients that we have represented. Although these are real examples of the problems our clients face after a devastating injury, each client’s injuries and situation are different and require a skilled personal injury lawyer to represent their rights to the fullest.
$1,200,000 Commercial Transit Bus Runs Stop Sign Verdict
A passenger in a car was on his way to a family member’s funeral when he was severely injured. A transit bus operator failed to obey a stop sign. The man suffered fractures to his shoulder blade, right wrist and right femur that required multiple corrective surgeries totaling $85,000 in medical expenses. The bus company’s last offer was $230,000. In April 2017, the jury awarded $1.2 million dollars after a three day trial. The verdict was reduced to $855,000 because of Maryland’s cap on non-economic damages.
