(Yost-Torres) In the first case, the plaintiff was stopped in traffic when the defendant driver who was reading a map while driving struck the rear of another vehicle that then struck the plaintiff’s car. Liability was admitted and the case proceeded to trial on damages and causation of injuries.
Within a day of the accident, Plaintiff had symptoms of back pain and inability to void her bladder. She ultimately had two (2) electrical stimulators implanted in her body. One for back/leg pain and one for bladder control. She walks with a cane, is unable to fully void her bladder and must self-catheterize 3 times daily. At mediation approx. nine (9) months prior to trial, defendants offered $80K to settle the case. On the eve of trial, a settlement was reached of $1.5M.
(Kreitler) In the second case, Mr. Brady’s client was the victim of a violent rear end collision caused by a loaded tractor-trailer traveling in excess of the speed limit which crushed the plaintiff’s vehicle, rolled it down an embankment and left her trapped inside, upside down. Liability was not contested in this case either. Discovery and proof again proceeded on damages and causation.
Plaintiff was initially treated surgically for debridement and closure of her right ankle injury.
The plaintiff sustained a number of injuries and was ultimately diagnosed with persistent post-concussive syndrome, vertigo and a very severe case of thoracic outlet syndrome. She also suffers from significant cognitive impairment and as a result of all her injuries, will not be able to return to her job as a chaplain at Mercy Medical Center. This case settled during the trial for $1.1M.
The citizens of California are lucky to have an attorney like Mr. Brady working every day to see that justice is served for people who are injured due to the negligence of others. Click here to review a sampling of Mr. Brady’s trial results.
