Accident Victim Justice: 2 Jury Verdicts in Favor of WCLG Clients

$575,000 Received for Middle School Teacher and Son

When a Ryder truck struck the rear of this Nissan Rogue at the Cherry Ave. offramp in Fontana, surgery and lost income dramatically affected the family. Through testimony of a vocational rehabilitation expert providing proof of reduced earning capacity, WCLG was able to secure the total settlement of $575,000.

2005 Crash, 2011 Trial: $603,000 Verdict

Though the defendants finally admitted fault at the start of this trial after five years of denial, they tried to avoid accountability by hiring two defense medical examiners to ridicule the victim.

The routine is common, if not famous.

The victim in this case required surgeries and could no longer work, according to all her treating physicians. However, the insurance company darlings, neurologist “Dr. B” and orthopedist “Dr. P,” claimed the injuries were just an ankle fracture and some bruises and strains.

But it’s not just their charter to minimize the victim’s injuries—they always suggest the victim is exaggerating, imagining and malingering. Small wonder their business model shows them testifying 95% of the time at the request of defense lawyers. Their opinions are predictable and always seem to disagree with real practicing doctors who are treating the patient.

Fortunately, the jury rejected the defense argument that $200,000 was fair compensation for their victim. The client was awarded $603,000 by the jury.
