$1,287,694.97 Awarded to Severely Autistic Young ManThe lawyers at The Yost Legal Group represented a severely autistic young man whose elbow was fractured by one of his caretakers at an adult services program, when the caretaker twisted and pulled our client’s arm behind his back. As a result of the fracture, the Plaintiff was hospitalized for two months during which time he underwent multiple surgeries to repair the fracture and treat an infection that developed at the fracture site. Ultimately, the Plaintiff’s dominant arm had to be fused at a 90-degree angle which prevents him from being able to do many of the day-to-day tasks that had taken years for him to learn to do for himself. The case went to trial and on October 6, 2021, a Montgomery County, Maryland jury found in favor of the Plaintiff and The Yost Legal Group obtained a verdict in the amount of $1,287,694.97.
$1,267,500 Motorcycle Wrongful Death CaseIn June 2021, our client was traveling on a 45-mph roadway when a Chevy Suburban traveling in the opposite direction, made a sudden left-hand turn into his pathway. Our client’s motorcycle struck the passenger side of the Chevy Suburban and he was thrown from the motorcycle and struck the pavement where he died immediately from the impact. We investigated the case and found video and camera footage from nearby businesses that captured the accident as it occurred. There was no question that the Defendant was negligent in turning directly in front of the motorcycle that had the right of way. The Defendant tried to allege that the accident was also caused by the fact that the motorcycle was significantly exceeding the speed limit. We retained a very qualified expert to evaluate the Defendant’s allegations. Based on analysis of the video footage, information from the vehicle, and other physical evidence, he offered expert testimony that the accident would have happened regardless of the motorcycle driver’s speed because the driver of the Chevy Suburban turned directly in front of the motorcyclist. At the end of the trial, The Yost Legal Group lawyers successfully argued that the family of the deceased should be awarded the full amount available under Maryland law. The family was awarded the maximum permitted amount allowed in Maryland of $1,267,500.
$1,200,000 Commercial Transit Bus Runs Stop Sign VerdictA 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. “Our goal is to hold corporations that needlessly harm individuals fully accountable for their actions.” – Mike Pulver, Attorney with Yost Legal Group
