$1,990,000 Car Accident Settlement

Ellis Injury Law filed a motor vehicle accident lawsuit, Ananise Scott v. Leonel Garibay et al. in the Superior Court of California – Riverside. The case was settled on March 28, 2019.

Facts of the Case: In 2016, Mr. Scott was driving his 2015 Nissan Altima on the I-215 in lane #4, when the defendant, who was driving a Freight Tractor with a McKinney Box Trailer attached, made an unsafe lane change, striking the left side of Mr. Scott’s car. Our client suffered major back injuries requiring lumbar micro-decompression surgery and two lumbar epidurals. His medical expenses totaled $181,000.

Results: Leveraging the testimony of two Life Care Planners, an Orthopedic Expert and Billing Expert, attorney Andrew Ellis was able to demonstrate the true cost of his client’s injuries, economic expenses, and future losses.  Mr. Ellis was able to secure $1,990,000 on behalf of Ananise Scott.

$1 Million Truck Accident Settlement

Ellis Injury Law filed a motor vehicle accident lawsuit, Lois Price v. John Bruno Best et al. in the Superior Court of California – Los Angeles. The case settled on April 19, 2019.

Facts of the Case: Our client, Ms. Lois Price, was driving her Toyota Camry on the I-405.  Noticing slower traffic ahead near the Los Coyotes exit, she reduced her speed accordingly. Seconds later, a large commercial truck rear-ended her vehicle, causing her to suffer severe injuries to the neck and left shoulder. Despite three epidural injections in her cervical spine, Ms. Price will need surgery in the future.  She accumulated medical costs of approximately $262,000.

Results: Attorneys Andrew Ellis and Britt Karp brought in a Vocational Economist and a Life Care Planner to demonstrate the extent and severity of the client’s losses, pain, and suffering. We were able to secure a $1 million motor vehicle accident settlement for Ms. Lois Price.

Facts of the Case: Our client, Mr. Jorge Vaca, was unloading a product pallet inside of the defendant’s warehouse in the course of his regular job duties.  He was using an electric pallet power jack when a warehouse employee, Ms. Doe, ran over our client’s foot while operating a forklift. Mr. Vaca sustained a distal fibula fracture and ligament damage to his ankle as a result of Ms. Doe’s negligence and failure to notice her surroundings.
