Recent Settlements & Verdicts Involving Head Injury
$1,578,500 — Head injury settlement for pedestrian accident victim
We represented a 12-year-old girl against the city of Milpitas and a general contractor for failing to warn about a non-functioning signal at a mid-block pedestrian school crossing. During litigation, a city employee who worked on the project admitted that she knew before the accident that the non-functioning crossing would be a problem but took no steps to correct the problem or issue a warning. Our client suffered a traumatic brain injury when a van struck her while she was using the crossing.

We represented a 42-year-old who was struck in the back of the head and neck by a piece of equipment that protruded from the bed of a passing pick-up truck. We proved that the client suffered a neck and traumatic brain injury, causing an extended disability.
