  • Prince George's County, Maryland
    Pedestrian Accident Attorney

    $3,000,000.00

    We represented a mother and her three year-old son who were crossing St. Barnabas Road in Temple Hills, Maryland when the child was struck and dragged by a car, and eventually pinned underneath it. At the time of the impact, the child was walking outside of a crosswalk, at night, and in the rain. Our team went to the scene of the accident to reconstruct the collision. We determined that the driver of the car could and should have avoided striking the boy. We also worked with the family to assist them through the months of hospitalization and recovery for the child. Eventually we were able to secure a recovery on behalf of the child for the full policy limits of $3,000,000.00

  • Washington D.C.
    Medical Malpractice Attorneys

    $2,000,000.00

    A mother retained our firm on behalf of her two year old son who had been severely burned in a shower while at a caretaker’s home. He required extensive skin grafting as a result. The defendants argued that they had not turned on the water and it was likely that the child had accidentally turned on the water. The child had no memory. We argued that the hot water heater was not set at a proper temperature in violation of the standard of care. We filed suit against the caretaker and her employer. They both denied liability, claiming that they complied with all applicable regulations and the standard care. After extensive litigation, we were able to obtain a $2,000,000 recovery for our client with court approval.

  • Washington DC
    Car Accident Attorneys

    $2,000,000.00

    We obtained a $2,000,000 settlement on behalf of a woman who suffered an amputation of her right leg below the knee as a result of an automobile accident in the District of Columbia. Our client was a passenger in a delivery vehicle. The driver of the delivery vehicle rear-ended a truck owned by a different company that was double parked while delivering goods. We filed suit against the companies that owned both vehicles. We alleged that the driver of the vehicle in which our client was a passenger negligently ran into the back of the double parked vehicle. We also alleged that the double parked vehicle was parked illegally. The company that owned the vehicle in which our client was a passenger claimed that its driver was an independent contractor and thus it was not responsible for his driving. The company whose vehicle was double parked claimed it was lawful to double park a delivery vehicle under city law. It further claimed the driver of the vehicle in which the client was a passenger had fallen asleep and was solely responsible for the accident. After extensive discovery and investigation, we were able to settle the case through private mediation for $2,000,000.

  • Washington, DC
    Medical Malpractice Attorneys

    $1,000,000.00

    Along with co-counsel, we represented a woman who gave birth to a stillborn child. She also suffered significant, permanent injuries as a result of the birth. We brought a claim alleging that there was a failure to properly monitor the client’s condition before and during the birth. We argued that, had her condition been properly monitored, the baby would not have died and the mother would not have been injured. Long, contested litigation ensued. After numerous depositions and extensive litigation, the case settled for $1,000,000.00, allowing the mother to be fairly compensated and avoid a trial.

  • Harford County, MD
    Slip and Fall Accident Lawyers

    $950,000.00

    We represented a father, his four year old son, and the child's grandmother. The four year old and his grandmother were walking inside a fast food restaurant when they turned a corner and slipped on a recently mopped floor that had not been marked with a “wet floor” sign or any other warning. The child exhibited virtually no signs of a head injury for nearly 6 months after his fall, but was ultimately diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury with pseudotumor cerebri and received care from pediatric neurologists, multiple radiology exams and a spinal tap to remove cerebral spinal fluid from the brain. The insurance company and defense lawyers disputed that the child’s injuries resulted from the fall. However, we filed suit and retained medical experts, vocational rehabilitation counselors, life care planners and economists to itemize the cost and burden of a lifetime of medical care and services necessitated by his injuries. We also demonstrated that the child's father was forced to leave his job to become a day trader in order to take care of his child from home. Moreover, the family had to relocate in order to minimize their cost of living in order to bear the medical expenses associated with caring for their injured child. Finally, the grandmother suffered significant orthopedic injuries from the fall, but not nearly as serious as her grandson’s.

    Through private mediation we were able to avoid trial and recover $650,000.00 in compensation for the child. Moreover, we were able to recover $200,000.00 for the father as a result of his lost earning capacity in leaving his IT career for several years to take care of his injured son. We also recovered $100,000.00 in compensation for the grandmother who was diagnosed with posttraumatic injuries to her left elbow and right foot and ankle. The total recovery of $950,000.00 allowed the family to recover financially from the significant burden the accident and resulting injuries placed on them.

  • District of Columbia
    Wrongful Death Lawyers

    $935,000.00

    We represented the families of two women who were killed in an apartment fire in Washington, DC. The two women lit an incense stick and placed it at the base of an artificial tree in their apartment. Unfortunately, the straw around the tree base caught fire and the resulting fire blocked the women’s ability to escape through the front door. Tragically, when they attempted to escape through the apartment’s windows, they were unable to because the windows were permanently barred with bars. It is a small relief that the women died of smoke inhalation and did not suffer any burn injuries.

    We filed suit against the building owner for creating an unreasonably dangerous condition by barring the windows. The owner refused to make any settlement offer due to the fact the two women themselves started the fire that killed them and also because both women did not have close family at the time of their deaths. However, after extensive investigation, we were able to provide legal authority calling into question whether the building owner could attempt to blame the women for starting the fire. We were also able to locate additional family members for both women. We were then able to resolve the case through mediation, prior to trial.

  • Washington D.C.
    Pedestrian Accident Attorney

    $750,000.00

    Our client was a pedestrian crossing a street in a crosswalk in Washington, DC when a driver turned onto the road he was crossing and struck him. From the force of the impact, he suffered a contusion on his frontal lobe and fractures in both his shoulder and leg. He was hospitalized for over two months, and then received at-home nursing care and physical therapy to regain mobility of his shoulder and leg. After contacting the driver’s insurance company, we were able to negotiate a settlement of $750,000 without having to file a law suit.

  • South Carolina
    Accident Lawyers

    $750,000.00

    We represented the family of a man who was fatally injured when his vehicle was struck by an 18 wheel tractor trailer in Spartanburg, South Carolina. He died at the scene of the accident. We hired a local investigator who took a statement from the sole witness and inspected the vehicles and accident scene. When the insurance company for the tractor trailer would not settle the case, we associated with local counsel in South Carolina and filed suit. We then agreed to mediate the case, resulting in a recovery of $750,000 for the family.

  • Washington D.C.
    Medical Malpractice Attorneys

    $750,000.00

    Our client in Washington, DC, who was in her 60's, was admitted to the hospital with jaundice and suspected liver failure. During the course of her admission, the doctors performed a liver biopsy. Shortly after the biopsy, our client began to show symptoms associated with bleeding from the sight of the biopsy, which is a known risk of the procedure. We filed suit on behalf of her estate claiming that the hospital and its staff failed to recognize that the client was bleeding causing her to suffer permanent damage to her organs resulting in her death.

    The hospital contended that it had treated the patient properly and that our client's liver disease made it unlikely that she would have lived in any event. After months of litigation and nearly 20 depositions, the case settled for $750,000.

  • Slip and Fall Injury Attorneys

    $600,000.00

    We represented a man who suffered a fracture to his leg that required surgery. Following the surgery, he suffered through additional complications. We were able to prove that his fall resulted from a failure of a worker to provide him with assistance which he had requested and which he obviously needed, as evidenced by his fall. The defendants claimed that he never requested assistance and, even if he did, had additional opportunities to ask for help prior to falling. Defendants also argued that some of his injuries were as a result of his failure to follow doctor’s instructions. Nevertheless, after several months, we obtained a $600,000.00 settlement for him.

  • Washington, D.C.
    Product Liability

    $575,000.00

    We represented a client who was seriously injured by a product while in the scope of his employment. He suffered significant internal injuries resulting in an extensive hospitalization. Prior to the suit, we retained an expert witness to inspect the product. We then filed a products liability lawsuit against the manufacturer of the product that injured him. After extensive discovery and negotiations, we were able to resolve the matter for $575,000 prior to trial. Due to confidentiality provisions in the release, we cannot provide further details of this lawsuit.

  • Fairfax County, Virginia
    Medical Malpractice Lawyers

    $575,000.00

    We represented a man who saw a dermatologist and underwent a Mohs procedure to remove cancerous lumps from his lip. We alleged that the dermatologist failed to properly do the procedure resulting in the spread of the client’s cancer. The dermatologist contended that he had done the procedure properly but at the time of the procedure the cancer had already spread to other portions of the client’s face as well as lymph nodes. Our client was forced to undergo cancer treatment as well as extensive excision of cancerous growths from his face which required subsequent chemotherapy. We filed suit against the original dermatologist alleging that his care was negligent and failed to fully eradicate the dangerous cells prior to the cancer’s spread. After extensive litigation in which we retained prominent expert witnesses, obtained $575,000 on behalf of our client

  • Washington D.C.
    Medical Malpractice Attorneys

    $550,000.00

    Our client was attacked and struck in the face by an assailant in Washington, D.C. He went to the emergency room complaining of a swollen jaw and was examined and discharged. Two days later he returned to the same emergency room complaining of swelling in his throat and a slight fever. He was once again examined and discharged. The next day he returned to the same emergency room again still complaining of swelling, sickness, and slight fever. He was told to follow-up with an Ear, Nose, and Throat specialist. On the day of his appointment with the Ear, Nose, and Throat specialist he suffered a cardiac arrest, was taken by ambulance to the hospital, and passed away shortly after arrival as a result of complications from an infection.

    The hospital claimed that the infection was exceedingly rare and multiple other lawyers declined the client's case for that reason. Nevertheless, we accepted the case, filed suit and were able to obtain a settlement for $550,000 prior to trial.

  • Montgomery County, Maryland
    Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

    $550,000.00

    We represented a young man who was traveling through a green light on his motorcycle in Silver Spring, Maryland. A car coming from the other direction, turned left and entered his path causing a collision. Our client was thrown from his motorcycle, sliding across the road, striking a signpost, and falling into a coma. As a result of the accident, he sustained facial and leg fractures, a partial collapse of his lungs, internal bleeding, brain hemorrhages, and cognitive impairment. The defendant claimed that at the time of the accident, their employee was not within the scope of his employment but heading home. We vigorously fought this contention that he was not within the scope of his employment as there would have been insufficient coverage for the injuries in the case. After filing suit in this matter and extensive litigation we obtained $550,000 on behalf of our client.

  • District of Columbia
    Birth Injury Attorneys

    $525,000.00

    We represented a young woman who arrived at a District of Columbia hospital for what she thought would be a normal delivery of her baby. She did not have any known symptoms or risk factors for a shoulder dystocia presentation. Unfortunately, the physicians failed to take appropriate action upon encountering the shoulder dystocia and the child suffered a brachial plexus injury (Erb’s Palsy) during delivery. There was very limited evidence of what happened in the delivery room and all the treating physicians claimed that they had acted appropriately. We filed suit and were able to obtain a recovery of $525,000.

  • Rockville
    Accident Lawyers

    $504,000.00

    We represented a father and daughter who were seriously injured in a car accident on New Year's Day in Rockville, Maryland, when they were struck head on by a priest returning to his church from a hospital visit. The daughter suffered a fractured back and internal organ injuries that caused her to be hospitalized for over a month. The father's injuries were less severe. Our client's original attorney recommended that our clients settle the daughter's case for the priest's automobile insurance policy limits of $100,000.

    However, once retained, we pursued a case against the priest's parish, arguing that the priest was acting in the scope of his employment at the time of the accident. We successfully opposed the church's motion to dismiss the case, and were able to settle her case for $475,000. We also settled the father's case for $29,000.

  • Prince George's County
    Accident Lawyers

    $500,000.00

    Our client was involved in a devastating accident with an uninsured motorist in Prince George’s County, Maryland. She suffered several fractures and internal injuries, including a splenic laceration that required multiple surgeries. Her insurance company initially refused to pay any damages under its uninsured motorist policy, but we were eventually able to obtain a recovery of the full policy limits of $500,000. We then were able to negotiate large reductions in our client’s outstanding medical bills to ensure that she received as much of the settlement as possible.

  • Prince George’s County, Maryland
    Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

    $500,000.00

    Our client was traveling on his motorcycle traveling in Landover, Maryland when a driver traveling in the opposite direction failed to yield the right of way when making a left hand turn and struck our client. As a result of the impact, our client suffered fractures in his chest, skull, right leg, and both arms. His injuries necessitated surgery and left him recovering in a cast for several months. After filing a lawsuit, we established that the other driver was negligent obtained $500,000 on our client’s behalf.

  • Maryland
    Wrongful Death Attorneys

    $450,000.00

    We represented the parents of a woman who tragically died when the vehicle in which she was traveling was struck by a tractor trailer traveling the opposite direction on the highway. The trailer struck a guardrail at full speed, flipped onto its side and crossed several lanes of oncoming traffic. Our clients retained our firm seeking compensation for their daughter’s tragic death, and without having to go to trial, which the family wished to avoid because it would require reliving the accident. We obtained $450,000 in a settlement. Because the child was a middle-aged adult the parents’ claims were limited in comparison to her husband.

  • Washington, DC
    Motorcycle Accident

    $450,000.00

    Our client was riding his motorcycle on Maine Avenue in Washington, DC when a Metro utility truck cut in front of him and struck him, causing him to collide with the median and two other vehicles. At the scene, the Metro utility truck driver claimed that the accident was our client’s fault. As a result of the impact, our client sustained severe injuries, many of which are permanent and required multiple surgeries. These included a concussion, fractures to his right forearm, right hand, and right shoulder, a subdural hematoma, sensitivity to light, and a drooping eye. After filing a lawsuit and conducting extensive litigation, we obtained a $450,000.00 recovery on our client's behalf.

  • Washington, DC
    Slip & Fall Lawyers

    $440,000.00

    We represented a woman who fell into an exposed ramp behind an apartment building in Washington, DC. Our client had gone to an apartment building to visit a friend in the late afternoon/early evening. After discovering that her friend was not home, our client left via the rear exit of the apartment building. While walking on the rear walkway, our client fell into an unlit, exposed ramp that led down to the boiler room of the building. She sustained a severe fracture of her ankle that required multiple surgeries to repair. Her injuries forced her to use a walker or wheelchair on a permanent basis. We filed a lawsuit against the companies that owned and maintained the apartment building and the ramp area. They denied liability on the basis that our client was not an invited guest, and that she should have seen the ramp. Through extensive investigations, we determined that our client was in fact an invited guest in the building. We also worked extensively with an expert witness to prove that not only was the ramp unlit at the time of the incident, but the surrounding area was insufficiently illuminated, and a handrail or guard around the ramp was required. After filing suit, taking numerous depositions, working with expert witnesses, and completing a private mediation, the case settled for $440,000.00.

  • Smyth County, Virginia
    Premises Liability Accident Attorneys

    $425,000.00

    We represented a Tennessee woman who slipped and fell in a motel parking lot in Marion, Virginia. She slipped on ice that had refrozen at night after snow had melted during the day. She fractured her wrist and had a subdural hematoma and hemorrhage, which required three brain surgeries. However, she did not seek medical treatment for three days after the accident. Moreover, in her initial medical visit following the accident, she did not mention any head injury. There were also significant liability issues because no one witnessed her fall and although she claimed she reported the fall, there was no record of the fall being reported. Finally, there had been a significant snow storm before her fall and it was not obvious that the parking lot could have been cleaned any better. After several months of litigation, we obtained a settlement of $425,000.00.

  • Montgomery County, Maryland
    Birth Injury Attorneys

    $400,000.00

    We represented a pregnant woman who felt unusual pain shortly before going into labor. Her doctor refused her a Caesarean section. In the process of delivering the child a shoulder dystocia was encountered. The physician failed to properly deliver the child or diagnose the shoulder dystocia. As a result, the child suffered a brachial plexus injury or Erb’s Palsy. We filed suit against the attending physician and despite his contention that he had not departed from the standard of care, we recovered $400,000 on the child’s behalf.

  • Wythe County, VA
    Tractor Trailer Accident Lawyers

    $395,000.00

    Our client was seriously injured in an accident with a tractor trailer. The police on the scene determined that the vehicle in which she was riding was responsible for the accident. The client suffered multiple fractures in their back, but did not require surgery. After extensive investigation, we determined that the tractor trailer driver, who had a larger insurance policy, was also negligent and filed suit against him as well as the driver of our client’s vehicle. We were then able to prove negligence and recover from both drivers prior to trial.

  • District of Columbia
    Legal Malpractice Attorneys

    $375,000.00

    We obtained a $375,000 recovery on behalf of a woman in Washington, DC who retained an attorney to file a medical malpractice claim on behalf of her late husband's estate. The late husband was in poor health from other illnesses and the issues of malpractice and the cause of his injuries were strongly contested.

    Nevertheless, after extensive negotiations over the medical facts of the case and retention of a medical expert, we were able to obtain the settlement prior to filing suit.

  • Medical Malpractice/Birth Injury Attorneys

    $350,000.00

    We represented a woman who showed signs during her pregnancy that her baby was in danger. Her physician failed to apprise her of the risks of continuing with her pregnancy versus immediate delivery. As a result, our client’s child was stillborn. The law clearly states that all patients have the right to full information in order to make informed decisions regarding their medical care. Although the physician claimed that the patient’s condition had not changed sufficiently, he was not required to provide her with the option of immediate delivery. After filing suit, conducting depositions and obtaining expert witness testimony, we recovered $350,000.00 for our client.

  • Hagerstown
    Wrongful Death Lawyers

    $350,000.00

    Our client was a 16 year old boy in Hagerstown, Maryland staying at his grandfather's house. As part of a homecoming party, our client decided to build a bonfire. When doing so, our client asked his grandfather for gasoline to ignite the fire, which the grandfather provided him. In the course of trying to ignite the fire, our client set off an explosion that burned him severely and after three weeks of hospitalization, took his life.

    The insurance company claimed that our client was negligent and should have known better than to start a fire with gasoline. Nevertheless, we retained a fire expert and were able to settle the case without having to file suit, which the family wished to avoid, for $350,000.

  • Washington, DC
    Pedestrian Accident Lawyers

    $350,000.00

    We represented a woman who was struck as a pedestrian while crossing the street in a crosswalk in Washington, DC. She had an extensive medical history, including two prior surgeries to her lower back as well as an injury to her right knee for which she sought treatment just two weeks before the accident. Nearly three years after the pedestrian accident, she underwent surgery for a torn meniscus in her right knee. Despite her complicated medical history, we retained a board certified spine surgeon and her treating orthopedic surgeon and argued that her right knee surgery was a result of her accident and that she would develop post traumatic arthritis in the right knee and require a total knee replacement surgery in the future. After extensive litigation, the matter was mediated and settled for $350,000.00 without the need for a trial.

  • Washington D.C.
    Insurance Lawyers

    $340,000.00

    We represented a man in Washington, DC who was mistakenly believed to be the cause of a disruption at a restaurant in Washington DC, and who was grabbed from behind and forced to the ground, thereby injuring his knee. We filed suit against the restaurant, but the restaurant's insurance company refused to provide coverage or a lawyer for the restaurant. After proceeding against the restaurant, we obtained a default judgment for $340,000.

    We then filed suit against the insurance company seeking to force it to pay the judgment. The insurance company eventually settled the case by agreeing to pay $80,000 of the judgment.

  • Washington, D.C.
    Trip & Fall

    $325,000.00

    A woman retained our services after she fell into a pothole while crossing the street to get to her car in the District of Columbia. As a result of her fall, she required an ankle surgery, including the permanent placement of screws into her right ankle and extensive physical therapy. Our firm investigated her case and discovered that the city had been previously informed of the risk of the pothole by a neighbor. The District of Columbia denied that it was placed on notice of the pothole and claimed that a search of the 311 records revealed no complaints regarding the pothole. Despite this dispute, we filed suit and were able to win a $325,000 recovery for our client.

  • Washington, DC
    Personal Injury Lawyers

    $325,000.00

    Our client was shopping at a warehouse store when a box fell from a shelf hitting him in the back of the neck. He suffered tissue swelling and cephalohematoma, which led to memory and vision difficulties and required significant medical care. The warehouse claimed that we were unable to establish that its negligence caused the injuries and had videotapes of the client doing activities that it claimed were inconsistent with his injuries. We garnered witnesses to prove that the activities were not inconsistent with the injuries and obtained a $325,000 recovery after extensive litigation.

  • Washington D.C.
    Wrongful Death Attorneys

    $315,000.00

    We represented two men in Washington, DC, who were shot by an off duty police officer. One of the men died and the other was seriously injured. We filed suit in federal court alleging excessive use of force.

    Despite our clients' use of both alcohol and cocaine almost immediately before the incident, we successfully argued that their conduct did not justify the use of lethal force against them. As a result, we were able to settle the case for over $300,000.

  • Fluvanna County
    Car Accident Attorneys

    $300,000.00

    We represented a man who sustained a clavicular hematoma and fractures of his ribs and sternum as a result of an automobile accident in which the adverse driver failed to yield the right away. Our client’s injuries required surgery on his back and neck, leaving him in a back brace for many months. We worked with the insurance companies for both our client and the adverse driver and were able to obtain a settlement offer of the full insurance coverage available of $300,000 without the need to file a lawsuit.

  • Fairfax County
    Dog Bite Lawyers

    $300,000.00

    Two parents retained our firm on behalf of their five year old son, who was attacked by an unprovoked pit bull. The little boy was walking with his grandmother in a park in Fairfax County, Virginia when they came across a woman walking two dogs. The woman assured them that her dogs were friendly, but one of them lunged at the little boy and bit him, severing part of his ear. He required plastic surgery to restore the ear and the long recovery period took an enormous toll on his family. Fortunately, he made a good recovery. We tracked the dog owner’s activity on social media and located statements she had made that proved she had reason to keep her dog away from the child. We were then able to obtain an offer of the full insurance policy available of $300,000 without the need to file a lawsuit.

  • Fairfax
    Accident Attorneys

    $300,000.00

    A client in Fairfax, Virginia was severely injured when he made a left turn in front of a vehicle traveling in the opposite direction. The police cited our client for failing to yield the right of way. We retained a roadway expert to conduct an examination of the accident scene that revealed a dip in the roadway that prevented our client from seeing the other vehicle prior to making his left turn. Our investigation further revealed that the vehicle that struck our client was speeding.

    As a result, we were successful in having the ticket issued to our client dismissed. We then filed suit against the responsible driver and obtained a settlement for the other driver's maximum amount of available insurance coverage of $300,000.

  • Fairfax County
    Motor Accident Lawyers

    $300,000.00

    Our client was driving his car on the beltway in Fairfax County, Virginia when a Greyhound bus in the lane to his right unexpectedly entered his lane and forced his vehicle to scrape against the cement guardrail before coming to a rest. As a result of the accident, our client suffered injuries to his back, neck, hip, and ankle. He was immobilized by these injuries to the point where he developed a thrombosis in his lung, leaving him susceptible to blood clots for the rest of his life. We filed suit against the bus company, identified numerous inconsistencies in the bus driver’s testimonies, and obtained medical testimony from our client’s treating physician confirming that his susceptibility to thrombosis was due to the accident. We were then able to mediate the case before a retired judge and obtained a settlement of $300,000 prior to trial.

  • Washington, DC
    Negligence Attorneys

    $290,000.00

    A young boy was playing on the playground of his Washington, DC preschool during recess when, unsupervised, he fell from a set of monkey bars and fractured his left wrist and elbow. He was transported to a hospital where he underwent surgery to pin the fractures and irrigate his wounds. Unfortunately, his wounds were unable to be closed and necessitated painful skin grafts. He required treatment for over a year, and sustained permanent scars on his left wrist and thigh. The teacher and school denied responsibility, arguing that the child was warned numerous times not to play on the monkey bars and that at the very moment the incident occurred, a teacher’s aide was instructing him to stop playing on the monkey bars.

    We filed suit, investigated the playground, conducted numerous depositions, interviewed parents of other children enrolled in the school, retained a prominent expert witness, and ultimately established that the monkey bars were unsafe for a child of the boy’s age. We also established that the school had been warned of the danger prior to the incident. As a result, after extensive litigation, we recovered $290,000 for our client.

  • Carroll County, Maryland
    Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyers

    $280,000.00

    Our client suffered several serious injuries, including contusions of his abdominal wall, kidney lesions, lower back pain, neck sprain, concussion with coma, right shoulder pain, headaches and Grand Mal and absence seizures as the result of an automobile accident on New Washington Road (Rt. 97) in Westminster, MD in Carroll County. We filed a suit on his behalf against the responsible driver and also our client’s insurance company due to the limited insurance covering the responsible driver. After litigating the case, including fact and expert depositions, we were able to persuade the responsible driver’s insurance company to offer their full policy limits and also persuaded our client’s insurance company to offer an additional amount to enable our client to settle the case for $280,000 without the need for a trial.

  • Prince William County
    Medical Malpractice Lawyers

    $275,000.00

    We represented a mother and father on behalf of their child, who passed away as a result of medical malpractice. The child was severely compromised and required home health care. A nurse during the course of administering home health care disconnected the child’s ventilator allowing him to be deprived of oxygen. Although oxygen levels were restored and the child was not transported to the hospital, he took a turn for the worse. After three days in the hospital, he passed away. The defendants claimed that because the child was so sick he had a shortened life expectancy. In addition, they claimed that his death was related to his underlying illness and not the desaturation event. After filing suit against the nursing agency, we were able to obtain a $275,000.00 settlement for the parents for the loss of their child.

  • Washington, DC
    Wrongful Death Lawyers

    $275,000.00

    We represented a man that died after a hospital failed to properly retrieve a dental device that he had swallowed. At the hospital, hospital physicians believed that the device had passed through his stomach and would likely pass through his digestive system. However, they did insufficient examinations to ensure that the device had not been retained in the esophagus or stomach. Over a year later, the victim developed an infection related to the retention of the dental device. In the process of another hospital attempting to remove the device he died of an exceedingly rare complication.

    A lawsuit was filed and the case was vigorously defended. The hospital claimed that the death was not related to the retention of the medical device but instead a rare condition that had developed completely independently of the retention of the medical device. Eventually we were able to recover $275,000 on behalf of the family despite very difficult facts.

  • Alexandria
    Wrongful Death Attorneys

    $265,000.00

    The mother of our client in Alexandria, Virginia was struck by a U.S. Postal Service truck while she was crossing a street in Alexandria, Virginia. She died a short while after arriving at the hospital due to closed head injuries. She was 74 years old, lived alone, and worked part-time. We hired an investigator to document the accident scene and interview the sole witness and also retained an economist to calculate the full economic damages.

    As a result, we were able to settle the case prior to filing suit for $265,000.00, resulting in a recovery for her estate of over $208,000.00.

  • Anne Arundel County
    Car Accident Lawyers

    $262,500.00

    We represented a husband and wife who were visiting the Washington, DC area. While driving their rental van on Route 50 with their three children in the back, traffic slowed to a stop, and their vehicle was rear-ended by the car behind them. The entire family was transported to Anne Arundel Medical Center via ambulance, and we represented only the parents in this action. As a result of the incident, the husband suffered from a concussion, back pain, neck pain, vertigo, and difficulty concentrating and thinking. The wife also suffered from neck pain, headaches, and forgetfulness as a result of the incident. The husband had difficulty performing his job duties, which required him to concentrate while staring at a computer screen all day, and he was ultimately laid off as a part of large company-wide downsizing. The defendants claimed that there was minimal damage to the vehicles and the purported brain injuries did not reveal themselves until long after the accident. A lawsuit was filed, depositions completed, and ultimately, the case resolved for $262,500.

    Civil Rights Attorneys

    $260,000.00

    We successfully represented a class of hearing impaired individuals in Washington, DC who filed a federal class action lawsuit against two national movie theater chains. A writer for The Harvard Law Review declared our firm's efforts on behalf of closed-captioned movies as resulting in a "historic settlement." The Court praised the firm for "conscientiously, diligently and creatively" reaching the settlement.

    We overcame two contrary federal court decisions and obtained a settlement that provided the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area with more closed captioning movies than any other city in the world.

  • Landover, Maryland
    Car Accident Lawyers

    $250,000.00

    Our client was a passenger in a vehicle driving in Prince George’s County, Maryland that was suddenly cut off by another vehicle that then abruptly stopped, causing a collision. The responding EMTs cut our client’s pants and boots in order to extract her from the car, and in the process discovered that her knee bone had protruded through the skin. In addition to this, our client suffered fractures in her leg and wrist, dislocation of her hip, and a concussion.

    The responsible driver originally claimed that she was not at fault, but we filed suit, retained her treating orthopedic surgeon, a vocational rehabilitation counselor and economist as expert witnesses. After proving that the driver in front of our client was negligent, we obtained a $250,000 settlement offer, which our client accepted prior to trial.

  • Washington, DC

    $250,000.00

    We represented the estate of a man who was killed when an out-of-control driver careened onto the sidewalk and struck him. The responsible driver had a minimal insurance policy and the personal representative of the man’s estate was about to accept it, but first consulted with our office. We investigated the insurance available on the man’s personal policy and then demanded the full limits of that policy. As a result, we were able to settle the case for $250,000 without litigation, resulting in a recovery far greater than the offer the estate was going to accept before our involvement.

  • Maryland
    Pedestrian Accident Attorneys

    $250,000.00

    Our client was walking in the parking lot of the Wal-Mart store in Maryland in which he worked when he was struck by a car. As a result of the collision, our client sustained a concussion and fractures to his legs, ribs, and shoulders. He required surgery on his legs and two months of inpatient rehabilitative care.

    The insurance companies raised the defense that our client was difficult to see at the time of the accident. In addition, our client had received a workers compensation award and the insurance company was asserting a lien on his recovery against the responsible driver. Finally, the responsible driver had only $50,000 in liability coverage. We worked with a workers compensation company, obtained an offer of the policy limits from the driver’s insurance company and then made a claim against our client’s insurance company for under-insured motorist benefits. As a result, we were able to obtain a recovery of the full policy limits from both policies of $250,000.

  • Washington, DC
    Personal Injury Attorneys

    $250,000.00

    Our client was a building inspector working in Washington, DC, when a window - including its frame, glass, and an object behind the glass - unexpectedly fell from the third floor of a building and struck his head. He immediately felt a jolt of pain in his head and neck and sustained multiple lacerations across his neck and head. Over the next few days, his condition worsened and despite multiple types of treatment, he was diagnosed with permanent hearing loss which required the use of hearing aids. Also as a result of this incident, he experienced a severe dizzy spell when walking up the stairs in his own home, and fell and fractured his wrist.

    The responsible parties attempted to defend the case by relying on our client’s past medical history as proving that the accident was not the cause of his complaints. There was also a lack of information on who exactly dropped the window and how. However, after obtaining a prominent medical expert to testify on our client’s behalf, we filed suit and were able to provide strong evidence that his injuries were, in fact, caused by the falling window. As a result, we obtained a $250,000 settlement at the pre-trial conference and avoided trial, which our client wanted.

  • Washington, DC
    Pedestrian/Segway Accident

    $250,000.00

    Our client was a 15 year old girl who was visiting the United States. She was on a Segway tour of Washington, DC with her family when the driver of an automobile failed to stop at a crosswalk and struck her. As a result of the impact, she was pushed over 15 feet and knocked unconscious. She made a good recovery, but suffered a fracture to her right leg that required the insertion of a metal rod. The insurance company for the negligent driver made a low offer during settlement discussions, so we filed suit on her behalf. After discovery and depositions of our client and her family, the driver’s insurance company raised their offer and we were able to settle the case for $250,000. This allowed our client to avoid coming back to the United States for trial.

  • Washington, DC
    Personal Injury Lawyers

    $235,000.00

    We represented a 12 year old boy and his mother after the boy opened an unlocked door in an abandoned area of his school and climbed above the ceiling rafters. As he and his friends explored the space, the young boy fell through the ceiling, falling 75 feet to the ground. As a result of the fall, he sustained fractures on both of his legs, lacerations on his face, and post-concussive brain injuries.

    The school argued that the accident was the boy’s fault because he made the dangerous decisions to enter an unknown area and then climb above the ceiling. However, we worked with an expert psychology witness who testified that the boy was not negligent because his actions are consistent with what would be expected from boys his age. As a result, we were able to negotiate a $235,000 settlement after filing suit.

  • Washington, DC
    Bicycle Accident Attorneys

    $235,000.00

    Our client was riding his bicycle in Washington, DC when a Secret Service officer made a U-turn, struck him, and knocked him off his bicycle. He sustained significant injuries which necessitated multiple surgeries, including a rotator cuff tear, a wrist ligament injury, an ankle fracture, and a rib fracture. The federal government initially denied responsibility for the accident, which meant that we filed suit in the federal court in the District of Columbia in order to obtain a recovery for our client. After extensive litigation, we were able to provide a convincing argument that the Secret Service officer was at fault and that our client was seriously injured. We were able to settle the case for $235,000.00 by means of private mediation.

    $235,000.00

    Our client was tragically killed in a tractor-trailer accident when his truck was struck by another after he slowed down. There were no witnesses other than the tractor trailer driver who struck our client and he claimed that the rear lights of our client’s car were not working at the time of the collision. A police investigation reached the same conclusion and the police testified similarly at deposition. Despite all of these things working against us, we were able to recover $235,000 for the decedent’s family after protracted litigation.

  • Alexandria

    $230,000.00

    $225,000.00

    Our client was in an apartment in Washington, DC when a mattress caught fire through no fault of his. In an attempt to save the lives others, our client ran to get a fire extinguisher. Upon locating the extinguisher, he noted that the glass window to the cabinet housing was broken. He grabbed the extinguisher and ran back to the apartment to put out the fire. However, when he attempted to use the extinguisher, he found that it was empty and the pin had been removed. With the fire and danger growing, our client took it upon himself to move the mattress out onto a fire escape to prevent the fire from spreading. Unfortunately in the process he suffered several burns on his body. We filed suit against the owner and management company for the building and, after extensive litigation, obtained a settlement of $225,000 prior to trial.

    Slip & Fall Attorneys

    $212,500.00

    Our client and her fiancé were staying in a hotel in Ocean City, Maryland when they heard what sounded like water running through the walls of their bathroom. She contacted the hotel front desk, who said they would send maintenance staff to their room. Our client decided to take a video to record the sound so the front desk could hear what they were hearing, but as soon as she stepped into the bathroom, she slipped and fell on an abundant amount of water on the floor. As a result of her fall, she sustained hairline fractures on her arm and tailbone and bulging disks in her back. We filed suit against the hotel and proved that our client’s fall was a direct result of the hotel’s failure to keep the premise reasonably safe, recovering $212,500 for our client.

The accident resulted in fractures and a ligament tear in our client’s foot that necessitated surgery, along with headaches and injuries to her neck, back, wrist, and hand. Through aggressive litigation, we were able to secure a settlement of $100,000, the full amount of the policy of the at-fault driver, and an additional $100,000 from her own insurance policy. This $200,000 settlement was over five times the amount of her total medical bills. We were able to settle the case without the need to take the case to trial, which our client desperately wanted to avoid, as she was expecting to deliver a baby around the trial date.

    $200,000.00

    We represented a young woman and her niece who were passengers in a vehicle that was involved in a serious accident in Queen Anne’s County, Maryland. The adult suffered a right tibial plateau fracture and the child suffered significant gastrointestinal injuries that resulted in removal of 17 cm of her bowel. The responsible driver initially denied liability and blamed the accident on the driver of the vehicle in which our clients were passengers. After filing suit, we were able to obtain a settlement for the responsible driver’s full insurance policy of $100,000 for each client. This allowed us to avoid a trial, which our minor client particularly wished to avoid.

An employee of the restaurant was nearby mopping, but failed to put up a “wet floor” sign to warn our client, and other customers, of the dangerous wet floor.

    As a result of her injuries, our client had difficulty standing, driving for long distances, and walking up and down stairs. We filed suit against the restaurant, and after demonstrating the full extent of her injuries and limitations, we reached a $194,000 settlement agreement prior to trial.

    We obtained a $180,000 settlement for a woman in Hagerstown, Maryland who was seriously injured when the car in which she was a passenger went off the road while avoiding another vehicle. There was no contact between the vehicles and the police report inaccurately listed one of the drivers as a witness.

As a result of the accident, he suffered a closed head trauma; cervical, dorsal, and lumbrosacral strains; contusion to his left ribs; an internal derangement of his left knee; and persistent headaches.

    After he came to us, we recommended that he see a doctor for a second opinion and he then received extensive treatment for his injuries.

  • Caroline County, Maryland

    $177,247.00

    Our client’s vehicle was rear-ended while at a complete stop due to construction. The collision resulted in our client being air-lifted to a shock trauma unit. Our client suffered a concussion, a cerebral hemorrhage, and a lumbar disc herniation. She also suffered from post-concussion symptoms after the incident. We were unable to obtain a sufficient offer, so we filed suit in Caroline County, Maryland. The insurance company for the responsible driver agreed to mediation and we reached a settlement for $177,247.00 and avoided the need for a trial. This fully reimbursed our client for $67,573.17 in medical bills and over $100,000.00 for her pain and suffering.

    $175,000.00

    We represented a woman who was involved in a rear end car collision. The responsible defendant rear-ended another vehicle and pushed it into our client’s vehicle. The property damage to our client’s vehicle was minor. Our client had a long history of a burning sensation in her legs prior to the accident. She had been previously diagnosed with lumbar disc disease. We retained a board certified neurological surgeon to review the medical chart and examine our client. Our expert was able to opine that the car collision aggravated our client’s pre-existing lumbar disc disease causing new pain in her back. After filing suit, and taking the testimony of our expert for trial, the matter settled for $175,000.00 at the office of the Defendant’s medical expert.

    $170,000.00

    Our client was a newspaper deliveryman making his morning rounds in Silver Spring, Maryland, when he tripped over a guy wire that was left over from a previous construction site. He sustained a concussion and a right elbow fracture that necessitated surgery. We filed suit and eventually brought claims against eleven companies and organizations in a search to determine who had left the dangerous guy wire less than a foot off of the ground, causing it to be a tripping hazard. After extensive litigation, we were able to resolve the matter for $170,000.

  • Laurel
    Product Liability Lawyers

    $170,000.00

    We represented a woman who had a total knee replacement surgery to address degenerative joint disease in her left knee. The prosthetic that replaced her knee, however, was ultimately unsuccessful and failed to bond properly with her bone. As a result, she suffered from chronic knee pain and lost partial mobility of her knee. The specific implant used in the surgery was later deemed faulty and recalled by the manufacturer. We negotiated a settlement that reimbursed our client for all of her medical bills incurred, the cost of future therapy, and provided her $170,000 for her inconvenience and pain and suffering.

  • Prince William County
    Wrongful Death Attorneys

    $150,000.00

    We represented the estate of a man who tragically died from complications following surgery on his leg. After his procedure, the man experienced extreme pain and swelling around the surgery sites, and a spike in his temperature. His sister and her husband immediately took him to see his doctor, who assured him that there was nothing to worry about. His symptoms continued to worsen, but the doctor continued to ignore the clear warning signs, placing his foot in a cast even though the surgical incisions were too moist, red, and swollen. Five days after the casting, our client awoke complaining of extreme pain. He collapsed soon thereafter and became unresponsive and unconscious. After being transported to the hospital, CPR failed to revive him and he passed away. The autopsy report stated that the cause of death was deep vein thrombosis.

    The doctor contended that he had treated his patient properly and there was no sign of deep vein thrombosis during any of his follow-up visits. The case was difficult because the decedent was an adult only survived by his sister. Accordingly, the only damages available were the pain and suffering of the adult sister as a result of the loss of her brother. However, through retaining expert witness testimony, we were able to establish the doctor’s negligence, and reached a $150,000 resolution to the matter.

  • Baltimore

All of these prevented her from exercising, walking long distances, and even standing for periods of time. We filed suit against the negligent driver and, after working with both the adverse driver’s and our client’s insurance companies, we were able to obtain $150,000.

  • Washington, DC
    Caretaker’s Negligence Lawyers

    $150,000.00

    We represented an elderly woman who suffered from partial paralysis and was entirely dependent on home health care aides to assist her. One morning, the aide who was in charge of our client was not properly supervising her and our client fell. The aide failed to report the incident to the client’s family or even a suitable medical provider. She simply completed her shift and returned home. Our client complained to her daughters about pain, however, and they noticed a large bruise on her leg. After taking her to the emergency room, it was discovered that our client had suffered severe fractures in both her fibula and tibia. This necessitated lengthy treatment which was further hindered by her already incapacitated state. The home aide pleaded ignorance, but given the unusual and obvious pain our client was experiencing, we were able to demonstrate that she failed to take the appropriate measures to prevent and then address our client’s fall. After filing suit, we were able to recover $150,000 on our client’s behalf.

  • Washington, DC

    $150,000.00

The responsible driver was intoxicated and fled the scene, but was apprehended 18 miles from the location of the accident. Our client suffered a cervical disc herniation at the C6-C7 level, which caused him to undergo an anterior cervical discectomy and fusion. During the course of the surgery it was discovered that the force of the impact from this accident was such that it fractured the screws from a previous discectomy at a different level. Our client had moved to California after the accident, and fortunately we were able to obtain a settlement in the amount of $150,000 without the need for a lawsuit, which would have required him to make several return trips to New Jersey.

  • Fairfax County
    Automobile Accident Lawyers

    $145,000.00

    Our client was driving on Telegraph Road in Lorton, Virginia, when a driver traveling in the opposite direction lost control of the car, crossing the median and striking our client head-on. Our client suffered four broken ribs, fractures in both feet, and dislocation of her right foot. After completing physical therapy, the injuries incapacitated our client to the extent that she was unable to return to work and subsequently lost her job. The adverse driver denied responsibility and claimed to have a seizure behind the wheel. His attorney counsel argued that because the seizure was unexpected, the driver was not negligent.

    Despite the denial, we filed suit and took the other driver’s deposition and called into question his claim that the seizure was unexpected and the accident was unavoidable. As a result, the case settled for $145,000. Our client who lived in Florida, was able to avoid traveling to Virginia for trial.

  • Prince George’s County

    $143,000.00

    We represented a man who was struck by a piece of debris after a tractor trailer collided with a fire truck and the vehicle crashed into a dividing wall on the Capital Beltway in Prince George’s County, Maryland. Our client’s vehicle flipped over several times as a result of being struck by the debris. Our client sustained facial lacerations and scarring, a broken nose, a partially collapsed lung, and traumatic brain injury. The responsible driver had limited insurance funds that had to be divided among many injured victims, including a firefighter whose arm was amputated as a result of the accident. Our legal team submitted the matter to mediation through the United States District Court and was able to recover $143,000.00 for our client without extensive litigation.

  • Alexandria
    Hotel Negligence Lawyers

    $142,500.00

    Our client was a guest at a hotel in Alexandria, Virginia. She required a shower chair due to the fact that her left leg had been amputated below the knee, and she requested one three weeks before her stay. The chair was not provided to her, however, even after she made repeated requests after she checked in. On the fourth day of her stay, she slipped as she exited the shower, sustaining a large bump on her head, a torn rotator cuff, and bruises on her left arm and shoulder.

    The hotel denied receiving her requests, but, after filing suits and months of litigation, we were able to obtain $142,500 settlement for our client without the expense and inconvenience of coming to Virginia for trial, which was difficult for her due to her medical condition.

  • Washington, DC
    Car Accident Attorneys

    $140,000.00

    We represented a woman who was a passenger in a car that was rear-ended by a truck driver attempting to change lanes. Our client felt neck pain following the collision, which increased and was later diagnosed as a cervical disc herniation that required surgery. After the surgery, her pain limited her abilities to perform basic duties at both of her jobs, which caused her to lose both of them. The truck driver denied responsibility and claimed that the accident was the fault of the driver of our client’s car because he attempted to improperly merge. That driver had a minimal policy that would not cover our client’s damages. In addition, the damaged areas of the vehicles and the truck driver’s statement to the police at the scene of the crash were inconsistent with his denial of responsibilities. After filing suit and identifying the inconsistencies in the truck driver’s statements, we were able to recover $140,000 for our client.

  • Maryland
    Accident Attorneys

    $136,850.00

    A client in Bowie, Maryland was operating a Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle when an automobile pulled out from an intersecting street and cut him off. Our client was able to avoid colliding with the vehicle that pulled out in front of him, but his evasive actions caused him to strike another automobile that was stopped at the next intersection. The driver who pulled out in front of our client claimed that our client was speeding and that he struck the stopped vehicle because he was not paying attention to where he was going.

    The other driver's insurance company refused to make any settlement offer in the case. We filed suit and took the case to trial, resulting in a jury verdict in the amount of $136,850.00, which exceeded the other driver's available insurance coverage.

  • Fairfax County
    Car Accident Lawyers

    $135,000.00

    Our client was driving on I-495 South when a car in front of her broke down and brought traffic to a stop. She was at a complete standstill when a tractor-trailer truck rear-ended the car behind her, pushing that car into hers, and subsequently wedging her car underneath the truck in front of her. As a result of the collision, our client sustained a broken collar bone, lacerations to her face, and posttraumatic stress disorder. The insurance company and attorneys for the driver of the tractor-trailer admitted that the truck driver was at fault, but denied that our client was injured as seriously as she claimed. We filed suit against the truck driver and retained multiple expert witnesses to document our client’s injuries. After significant litigation and settlement negotiations, we obtained a settlement of $135,000 prior to trial.

  • Prince George’s County
    Rear End Accident Attorney

    $128,843.14

    Our client was operating her vehicle on the Baltimore-Washington Parkway in icy and snowy conditions. She was rear ended as she slowed due to traffic. Our client was unable to identify which vehicle struck her and both drivers behind our client denied responsibility for the accident. In addition, both potentially responsible drivers had minimal insurance policies. As a result of the accident, our client sustained cervical strains, a lumbar strain, and shoulder strains. We retained our client’s treating orthopedic surgeon who prepared a report stating that as a result of the automobile collision our client would require surgery in the future to address the injury in her lower back, despite a long-standing history of low back problems stemming from a workplace injury years before the automobile collision and the absence of any objective injury to the lower back from the automobile collision on x-ray and MRI. We filed suit against both drivers who were behind our client and our client’s own insurance company. After prolonged litigation we settled the case for $128,843.14.

    $125,000.00

    We obtained a $125,000 settlement on behalf of the estate of an elderly man in Henderson, North Carolina who was found dead in the middle of a roadway in North Carolina. There were no witnesses to the accident, other than the tractor-trailer driver who claimed that the elderly man was already dead when he ran over him and who was found not at fault in the police report.

    However, through our investigation of the scene, photographs of the scene, and interviews with the reporting police officers uncovered enough inconsistencies with the driver's story to persuade his insurance company to settle the case.

Our client suffered from bulging and herniated disks, cervical strains, and a closed head trauma. We filed suit against the responsible driver and, due to her minimal insurance policy, also against our client’s own insurance company. After obtaining an offer from the responsible driver of the full insurance coverage available of $50,000, we negotiated an additional $75,000 recovery from our client’s own insurance company. Our client accepted the settlement and was able to avoid trial, which she desired.

    $125,000.00

    We represented a man who fell on a recently mopped floor in a cafeteria in Suitland, MD. Although our client claimed that there were no cafeteria employees near the fall and no yellow warning signs present, two cafeteria employees testified in deposition that five warning signs were on the floor, the cafeteria manager was directing customers around a spill, and the spill itself was being mopped at the time our client fell. Our client fell and landed on his right hand, injuring his right wrist and shoulder. Our client’s right shoulder had dislocated two years prior to the fall and the medical records showed a longstanding history of instability in the shoulder following the dislocation. Four months after the fall, our client underwent surgery on his right shoulder. Two and a half years later, he had a second surgical procedure to remove hardware inserted during the first surgery. We retained a board certified orthopedic surgeon to review the medical chart and examine our client. After filing suit and taking numerous depositions, the parties agreed to private mediation and the case settled for $125,000.00.

    We represented a man who was rear-ended on his way home from work. The force of the impact pushed his vehicle into the vehicle in front of him. As a result of the collision, he sustained an injury to his lower back. A subsequent MRI revealed a large herniated disc in our client’s lumbar spine. We filed suit against both the driver that rear-ended our client, and based on his claiming that the first vehicle struck suddenly, the driver of the vehicle in front of our client. The insurance company for each driver refused to make reasonable settlement offers and the case proceeded to trial. Our client had injured his lower back prior to the auto collision and although all of the prior medical records indicated the client’s herniated disc predated the auto collision, we retained an expert in neurological surgery to testify that although there was no way to tell whether the disc had been herniated in the auto collision, all of the symptoms from the herniated disc were caused by the auto collision and those symptoms were permanent. Our client only went to the doctor a few times and prior to trial hadn’t sought any medical treatment for his lower back injury in years. We received a verdict of $106,739 (after the jury, during deliberations, requested a calculator) which exceeded not only the settlement offers previously made, but also the amount of insurance available.

    $105,000.00

    After our client attended a party at her friend's house in Baltimore, Maryland, she exited the home and walked down a set of steps to the street. As she stepped off the last step onto the street, her foot slipped on the edge of a slightly raised area placed along the street by the county in order to divert water from the property. As a result, she suffered a comminuted fracture. We retained an expert on street repairs and filed suit against the county for negligently placing the raised area at the end of the steps.

    The county argued that the raised area was proper, that it was not the cause of our client's fall, and that our client had been seen tripping earlier in the evening because of the shoes she was wearing. Nevertheless, we were able to settle the case prior to trial for $105,000.

    $105,000.00

    Our client was walking through a metro station in Washington, DC when she slipped on black mesh that had been hanging from an overpass and spread out over a large area of the metro station floor for eight days. Photographs taken at the scene showed yellow accordion gates underneath the black mesh. At trial, our legal team was able to convince the jury that the positioning of the yellow accordion gates was consistent with them having been placed there by metro station employees, as opposed to having been inadvertently knocked over by metro riders. Although there was a large amount of black mesh material hanging from the underpass and spread over the floor, our legal team utilized key evidence to demonstrate that in the area where our client fell, the mesh was actually difficult to see. WMATA steadfastly denied responsibility for the accident and refused to make a settlement offer. It argued that the black mesh was an open and obvious danger that our client could have avoided, but failed to see. She fell forward, landing on her hands and knees; she sought medical treatment over the next month and then did not treat for her injuries from the fall for nearly one year. Years later, she underwent surgery for a torn meniscus in her right knee. We retained a board certified orthopedic surgeon to review the medical chart and examine our client. Our expert testified persuasively that the fall resulted in a torn meniscus which necessitated surgery and a torn rotator cuff. Our expert testified that both injuries were permanent. At trial, our legal team was able to highlight numerous contradictions in the testimony of the Defendant’s medical expert, convincing the jury that he was a biased “hired gun”. The case proceed to trial, where the jury ruled in favor of our client and awarded her $105,000 in damages.

She required internal fixation by means of a metallic plate in her left leg. The police report however, stated that our client was 15 feet outside the crosswalk and therefore at fault for the accident.

    We investigated the accident and discovered that the police officer’s estimate was based on where our client was lying when he arrived on the scene. We were able to convince the responsible driver’s insurance company that due to the force of the impact, our client was likely far closer to the crosswalk at the time of impact. We were then able to settle the case for the responsible driver’s full insurance policy of $100,000 without having to file suit.

We deposed numerous store employees and retained an engineer to review all of the key evidence in the case.

It was then discovered that she had suffered a subdural hemorrhage.

    We filed suit against the defendant claiming that the hemorrhage was a result of the accident. The defendant claimed that our client had a history of falling as a result of underlying medical issues and that this was the cause of the hemorrhage. Prior to trial, we were able to resolve the matter for the negligent driver's policy limits of $100,000.
