The Los Angeles car accident lawyers of Ellis Law are pleased to announce a recent $1M settlement in favor of our client, a victim of a serious rear-end collision. This is a wonderful result for the victim and his family after many months of hard work and persistent dedication of a very talented team.

Rear-end collision causes serious injury to client

The client is a gentleman who emigrated from Africa and is now a naturalized citizen of the United States. He was a hard-working taxi cab driver determined to bring his family here. While he was on the job, a speeding bus rear-ended a number of cars in one destructive accident. The bus struck the client’s taxi from behind with such force that the car in front of him went airborne and came back down on top of the cab.

As a result of the rear-end car accident, the client suffered severe injuries to his back and neck and missed at least 12 months of work. He required lower back surgery but did recover well. With the help of Andrew Ellis, Andrea Custurea, Rose Galvan, and Brenda Dranow, the client has been compensated for his injuries and the time he missed from work – this allowed him to fulfill his dream of bringing his family to the United States. With this fresh start, he and his family have the opportunity, and the financial means, for a better life.
