J&Y Law and PSB Co-Counsel on 1.957 Million Dollar Distracted Driving Case
Los Angeles, CA (Law Firm Newswire) March 29, 2019 – As a premier personal injury practice serving clients in California, J&Y Law routinely collaborates with a network of credentialed law firms to maximize our clients’ recovery. Most recently, we co-counseled with Panish Shea & Boyle LLP (PSB) on a case in which our client was awarded $1,957,500 after sustaining injuries in a distracted driving accident in San Diego.
In November 2014, our client was driving his white 1999 Dodge Ram pick-up truck, headed southbound on 30th Street in San Diego. While traveling through a green traffic signal at the intersection of 30th and Broadway, he was struck by another driver traveling westbound on Broadway who failed to stop for a red traffic signal. As a result of the collision, our client sustained two injuries to his lower back.
After 7 months of conservative chiropractic treatments, he received two spinal injections and resumed work as a tile setter. When the pain persisted, he sought additional treatment including a lumbar discogram in 2017, a single level lumbar fusion in 2018, followed by physical therapy and is expected to have another fusion surgery in the future.
Although the defendant admitted prior to trial she was solely liable for causing the accident, her attorneys argued that our client’s damages did not exceed an estimated $40,000. A San Diego County Superior Court jury disagreed, however, and awarded him $1,957,500 for past and future medical expenses as well as past and future non-economic loss.
This case highlights why it is crucial for anyone who has been injured in a car accident to be represented by an experienced personal injury attorney. J&Y Law would like to thank attorneys Robert Glassman and Nathan Werksman of PSB for their efforts in winning this substantial jury verdict.
