At Seropian Law, we have recovered over $50 million on behalf of our clients and their families.

 

Below are some of our latest verdicts and settlements, along with a short description of the case:

$2,000,000

Premises Liability - Broken Arm

Settlement for an elderly woman who sustained a compound fracture as she was leaving a department store. The case was grounded in a California Disabled Persons Act violation, allowing for threat of treble damages (and attorneys fees) should the matter have proceeded to trial and prevailed. Our office represented the cross-defendant, whose interests were aligned with the plaintiff. The result is an outlier broken arm settlement.

$875,000

Truck vs. Automobile

Settlement for a woman who was involved in a rear end accident. She underwent two epidural injections and multiple rounds of surgical consultations for a two-level cervical disc replacement (with possible fusion), but she never scheduled a surgery. The defense argued that plaintiff would never get the surgery, as 6 years had passed. Total medical expenses were around $60,000.

$1,000,000

Automobile v. Automobile - Back Surgery without Early Complaints

Settlement for a man involved in a rear end auto accident, resulting in a L4-5 disc replacement. Injuries were focused on the low back, despite our client making no initial complaints of low back pain at the emergency room (the closest complaint was some abdominal pain). This case settled in litigation.

$250,000

Automobile vs. Automobile - Hundreds of Dollars in PD

Settlement for a young woman (16 years old at the time of the incident) in a low-impact rear end accident (hundreds of dollars in property damage), with an allegation of head trauma and ongoing concussion symptoms. There were no offers in this case until it was litigated extensively.

$300,000

Automobile vs. Motorcycle - Questionable Toe Fracture

Settlement for a motorcyclist who fractured his toe, resulting in a surgery to fuse the outer most joint. Litigation was focused in part on the absence of physical evidence for the toe fracture (x-ray would not show the fracture, and CT was questionable). Total medical expenses were just under $30,000. The case settled after years of litigation.

$219.000

Automobile vs. Automobile - Low Medicals

Settlement for a man who was rear ended on the freeway, and sustained a laceration to his eye and some localized neck pain. Total medical expenses were under $16,000, making this settlement almost all general damages.

$400,000

Automobile vs. Pedestrian

Settlement for a man who suffered a non-dominant shoulder dislocation and greater tuberosity non-displaced fracture. His Howell billings (totaling $5,398.03) were paid by Medicare. This settlement represented entirely general damages.

$550,000

Automobile vs. Automobile - C-Spine Injury

Settlement for a woman who had two epidural injections for a single-level cervical disc herniation. Although surgery was recommended, our client stated she was not interested in any additional treatments, including surgery. Her total billings were under $30,000.

$250,000

Automobile vs. Pedestrian - Pre-Existing Shoulder Aggravation

Settlement for a man who had a future surgical recommendation on a shoulder that had previous extensive shoulder tears (down to the last fibers) per numerous pre-incident MRI studies.

$500,000

Spine Injury - 2 Mile Per Hour Delta-V

Settlement for a woman who was involved in a 2 mph Delta-v (change in velocity) collision, but who alleged extensive spinal injuries as a result. She had 3 pre-incident and 2-post incident accidents other than this subject incident, all of which occurred within a three year period.

$300,000

Automobile Collision - Physical Therapy Treatment

Settlement for a woman who sat passenger in a vehicle impacted by a semi-truck. She sustained pain in her ankle, neck, and chest, but received mostly physical therapy to treat her symptoms. This result is almost entirely pain and suffering.
