Catastrophic Premise Injury
R.M. v. CITY
Confidential Settlement

Loving Grandfather Dies As a Result of Dangerous Condition Ignored by a City

A grandfather flew in from out of state to spend time with his daughter and grandchildren. After watching his grandson play basketball, he was exiting the building when he was tripped by a piece of carpet which caused him to fall, strike his head, and led to his very unfortunate and untimely death. The family was devastated. The city denied any wrongdoing and blamed our client, the grandfather.

We hired expert witnesses. We dug deeply into the medical issues. But ultimately we were able to find the "needle in a haystack" by doing significant discovery that led to uncovering an email where a city employee complained about the number of people who were tripping on the very rug that led to our client's fall.

Nothing can undo this horrible tragedy. But in bringing this case forward this brave family not only uncovered the wrongdoing of the city but, in the process, hopefully forced changes by the city that will prevent other people from suffering horrible and preventable injuries. The amount of the settlement was confidential.

Motorcycle Accident
Confidential Settlement

Our client was at a construction site and was offered the use of a motorcycle to drive around the site for inspection. Unbeknownst to our client, the company that offered the use of the motorcycle failed to warn him that the brakes on the motorcycle were not operating. Our client began riding the motorcycle and came upon an unexpected trench in the site. When he went to use his brakes, the front brake failed. This led to our client being thrown over the handlebars and the motorcycle came crashing down on his leg, causing a serious and permanent leg injury.

Nursing Home Abuse Injury
R.C. v. Desert Sky
Confidential Settlement

Our client was at Desert Sky Health when she was dropped by an employee. She sustained a broken arm and required surgery. Her family did the research for her on what attorney to hire and chose us as her attorneys. Arizona nursing home abuse cases can be difficult to prove because often times the client is not aware of all of the facts and the staff at the nursing home can cover up things. This case was somewhat of a case that you see on TV. We discovered right before trial that the Defendant had withheld evidence. With all the preparation we had done on the case, including hiring multiple experts, the Defendant made a fair offer right before trial.

Serious Injury Accident
S.D. v. Ford Motor Company, Bridgestone/Firestone Rubber and Tire
Confidential Settlement

S.D. was one of many people around the country who was driving a Ford Explorer with Firestone tires when the tread came off the tires and the Explorer went into a rollover. Ford and Bridgestone both denied any liability throughout the case, and never accepted any responsibility. The case settled for a confidential amount after a significant amount of time in the court system.

Catastrophic Injury Car Accident
M.T. v. Bridgestone/Firestone North American Tire Company; Ford Motor Company
Confidential Settlement

This hard working entrepreneur was on a business trip when the tread of her tire suddenly came off while she was traveling at a high rate of speed. This caused M.R. to go across the double-yellow line into oncoming traffic, wherein she was involved in an violent collision with the oncoming vehicle.

M.T. was referred to our office by her insurance company's own lead attorney, an attorney we had gone against in many cases over the years. M.T. took the lawyer's advice and we were brought into this case. We had evidence and testimony demonstrating that this was a preventable collision which we alleged was caused by these defendants. Both defendants vigorously defended and denied any liability whatsoever. The case was closing in on a trial in Federal Court when it was ultimately settled.

Slip and Fall
S.C. v. Desert Ridge Marketplace
Confidential Settlement

Our client was walking through Desert Ridge Marketplace when she fell due to an unexpected step down. She broke her left fibula and had multiple surgeries. We filed a lawsuit and hired an investigator to examine the scene of the accident. We discovered that there had been prior complaints to the Defendant about this area. We were able to settle the case at mediation for an amount we are not able to disclose. Our client was very happy with the outcome of her case and we are glad we were able to help her resolve the case short of trial.

Trucking Accident
H.K. v. Crete Carrier Corporation
Confidential Settlement

This retired professor was involved in a trucking/Big-rig accident when the tractor-trailer coming from the opposite direction crossed over a divided highway, turned onto its side, and landed on top of our client's vehicle. At first, in spite of the need to be taken by helicopter to a hospital, it appeared that our client had suffered no significant injury. However, two months later, H.K. went in for brain surgery. The defendants claimed that this surgery was due to the professor's age, and had nothing to do with the incident.

Working with doctors, we were able to demonstrate that our client's brain injury and subsequent surgeries were caused by the initial collision, but there was a delayed effect that prevented the injury from being immediately recognized on the date of the collision. More importantly, the investigation showed that the truck driver was likely fatigued and, in fact, may well have fallen asleep at the wheel. There was evidence that we intended to use to show the jury that the truck driver had disregarded the safety of other motorists and instead had chosen to drive after he should have pulled over.

This client was referred to us by other clients who had hired us who were in a different car in the same crash. When our client wanted to know who to hire, the people he had never met before told him to call us.

Rollover Accident Wrongful Death
The R Family v. Ford Motor Company
Confidential Settlement

G.R., a correctional officer in the Arizona prison system, was the only son of loving, close parents, married to a wonderful woman he met in the military, and was the father of a fantastic young son. He was driving home one night when he was involved in a traffic accident in an intersection. However, what should have been a routine collision with minor injuries turned fatal when the vehicle rolled over and G.R. was thrown from the vehicle. The fact that G.R. was ejected from the car during the rollover shocked family and friends, who insisted G.R. always wore his seatbelt. An investigation raised questions about seatbelt failure and the likelihood that G.R. had worn his seatbelt but it came undone as a result of the collision. Ford Motor Company always denied liability, arguing at every step of the case that G.R. failed to ever put the seatbelt on, and that the seatbelt was in perfect working order. The case was vigorously litigated for nearly two years before a settlement could be reached that ended the case.

Catastrophic Construction Accident Injury
H.M. v. Element Homes and Mateo Homes
$1,900,000.00

Our client was a plumber who was told by his supervisor to visit a new home build for plumbing work that was needed on the second floor. When our client went to the home and proceeded up the stairs, the stairs collapsed and he landed on his back requiring surgery. While he was in the hospital, his wife knew he would need the best representation. She called our office and Mark met with her and explained all of the ins and outs of a construction injury claim in Arizona. We brought a claim against the general contractor and the subcontractor who was working on the stairs. They both pointed the fingers at each other and blamed our client for going up the stairs when there were no railings. The Defendants pointed to OSHA regulations which say if railings are not on stairs, a worker should not go up the stairs. Our client was ecstatic about the verdict and we were happy that justice was served.

Auto Accident
J.M. and P.M. v. American Family Insurance Company; (Others)
$1,250,000.00

A loving, hard working husband and business owner suffered serious injuries, including to his shoulders and legs, while his wife suffered broken bones in an automobile accident.

In this case, it may have appeared to many lawyers that there was only $250,000 in available insurance coverage. We used our experience and knowledge of personal injury and insurance law to obtain benefits from an additional insurance policy, increasing the available settlement from $250,000 to $1,250,000. Then, we demanded and fought for - and obtained -every dollar of the available insurance for this deserving couple.

Motorcycle Accident
S.S. v. Sante Fe Insurance Company
$1,195,353.10 (Judgment)

Our client was hit on his motorcycle when the driver of another vehicle ran a red light. Our client was very seriously injured. Initially, we demanded the insurance company pay its minimal $15,000 policy limits. Unfortunately, the insurance company starting playing games and adding inappropriate terms to what should have been a simple settlement. As a result, we took the case all the way to trial where the jury gave a verdict that, combined with other costs owed by the defendant, came to more than $1,200,000.00. In most cases our client choose to accept a settlement at some point prior to trial. However, when our clients choose to fight for their rights, we stand by our clients. Mark is a certified specialist in injury and wrongful death law. One of the criteria to even qualify for a chance to take the requisite examination is having significant trial experience in serious injury and wrongful death litigation. (In fact, Jury Trials are one of Mark's favorite parts of the law.)

Auto Accident
Mr. H. v. Farmer's Insurance Company; Government Insurers
$1,015,000.00

This loving husband and government employee was involved in a car accident that resulted in a permanent leg injury. The insurance company refused to offer the policy limits. Instead of reducing our demand, we continued to hold fast, refusing to take even a dollar less than the policy limits. We fought with the insurance company to offer every dollar of the $1,000,000 underinsured policy.

This case stands as an example of hiring a law team that is willing to take the case to the courtroom or final arbiter. Sometimes, just the willingness and ability to bring the fight to the defendant will achieve the fair and appropriate result. Like many of our cases, this client was referred to our office. This client was told of our abilities by another Arizona lawyer that trusted us enough to recommend our office to this client.

Emotional Injury Case
D. B. v. State of Arizona
$949,000.00

Complicated lawsuit against multiple parties that worked for the State of Arizona that caused our client damages from which he can never fully recover. Our client was willing to fight the case all the way to a jury trial even though the highest offer ever made by all of the defendants, combined, was $50,000. Our client believed in our ability to overcome a complicated set of laws and unusual set of factors in an injury claim so that he could attain justice. We took the case to trial and the jury awarded our client $950,000 and our client received almost 20-times the offer for a judgment against the State of Arizona for over $949,000. Even after we prevailed at trial, the State of Arizona appealed the judgment all the way through the Court of Appeals to the point of filing appeals paperwork with the Arizona Supreme Court. We won on appeal and our client was paid the money he was rightfully owed.

Catastrophic Injury Accident
The T Family v. Westfield Insurance Company
$940,000.00

This father, mother, and adult daughter were riding together in a car enjoying a normal day when all three suffered injuries in a violent car crash. We were hired to help the entire family and we were able to get all three cases settled before ever having to go to trial. The father had an injury to his knee which required surgery and time living in a rehabilitation center. We were able to help the father obtain excellent medical care while assisting the mother during the difficult time she had to cope with her own injuries, as well as those her husband was experiencing. In the end, were we able to obtain fair compensation for all three family members. This case was referred to us by an Arizona Judge Pro-Tem.

Left Turn Car Accident
R. S. v. Liberty Mutual Insurance Company
$700,000.00

This wonderful woman, a loving mother and retiree, was involved in a car accident with another driver. The other driver who hit our client denied responsibility and argued that it was our client's fault, alleging that our client did not have her headlights on. We argued that she did have her lights on. Our investigation that included an interview with the on-scene police officer determined that there was direct evidence of headlight usage at the time of the collision, demonstrated by the image left on the bulb of the headlight when it broke in the collision.

Showed that the officer had examined the lights before the vehicle was taken away from the scene of the accident. After intense negotiations, the insurance company finally conceded that the investigation demonstrated that their client was at fault. Out client received a fair settlement without having to file a lawsuit. This client was referred to us by a former client who knew of the high level of service we provide.

Assault Injury Accident
S.P. v. City of Phoenix
$572,940.00

S.P. was a high school student. One night, he was hanging out with friends in a parking lot filled with other teenagers. A police officer pulled into the parking lot, presumably to empty out the parking lot in front of the grocery store. When the police officer approached our client's vehicle, the officer thought he saw a gun. He fired a shot into the car, hitting S.P. in the head, and permanently damaging S.P.'s eyesight in one eye. Of course, S.P. had no gun or weapon of any kind. Nobody in his car had any weapons with them, the police officer had shot into a dark car on a dark night for a gun he claimed he saw.

Motorcyclist injured when City of Phoenix police officer made a U-Turn in front of our client who was heading straight on Pinnacle Peak Road. Client was taken by ambulance to the hospital. Serious foot and shoulder injuries. Defendant would not admit full liability for the incident.

We also hired a top expert witness to address their attempts to minimize the damages they owed to our client.

Car Accident
Wim City Employee
$450,000.00

Our client was riding a motorcycle in Phoenix when approaching an intersection a police offer turned left in front of him. In Arizona, when you file a claim against the City of Phoenix or any governmental entity, you only have 180 days to file what is called a Notice of Claim. After that a lawsuit must be filed within one year from the date of the accident. In this case because our client was still recouping from his injuries at the one year mark, we did have to file a lawsuit. Our client was taken by ambulance to the hospital and had surgery. We were able to get the case settled at mediation and our client was very thankful for all the work we did in reaching a successful settlement.

Road Rage Car Accident
J.P. v. Safeco Insurance Company, American Family Insurance Company
$350,767.20

J.P. was a young woman who had suffered a previous miscarriage. She was thrilled to be pregnant again, when she became a victim of road rage. She was driving down the road when people in the car near her lost control and started travelling at a high rate of speed. J.P. was an innocent victim, stuck at the wrong place at the wrong time, when she was struck head-on by the driver of a vehicle presumably angry at a different car and driver, altogether. J.P. was trapped in her car and could not get out, terrified and worried she would lose her baby. She was able to make it out, but suffered serious physical as well as some emotional affects of such a scary, unnecessary event. We were able to accept her case and bring a claim against all appropriate insurance companies, resulting in a fair settlement on her behalf.

Catastrophic Injury Car Accident
R.C. v. Allstate Insurance Company, Sentinel Insurance Company
$330,000.00

R.C. was the passenger in a car driven by his wife when they were involved in a severe collision at an intersection. R.C.'s loving wife stayed by his side as R.C. made a dramatic and rapid, complete recovery from what at first looked like life-threatening injuries. R.C.'s wife felt the other driver was at fault, and the second driver blamed R.C.'s wife. R.C.'s wife turned to us for support and answers during those initial days, where R.C. was touch-and-go in the intensive care unit. After R.C. got out of ICU, we were able to make sure all of his medical bills were paid, his wage loss was fully reimbursed, and he received fair compensation for the horrendous injuries he had initially suffered. His quick recovery remains a very bright spot to this case, and he returned home to his loving wife and returned to his job soon thereafter.

Rear-End Car Accident
F.S. v. Scottsdale Insurance Company
$330,000.00

F.S. was rear-ended at a high rate of speed, and then thrust into the vehicle in front of him. The combination of the violent impact from behind and the immediate crash into the stopped car in front of him turned this rear end accident into a life-changing event for F.S. A hard working husband and father, F.S. had always been the primary breadwinner in his home. He had to undergo neck surgery as a result of this collision, and he knew that his neck would never return to being completely the same as it was prior to the collision. When our settlement demands were not met, we filed suit. Ultimately, we were able to obtain compensation that would help F.S. and his family in the years to come.

Rear-End Auto Accident
$300,000.00

A car accident that occurred in Mesa, Arizona. Our client had slowed down because of sirens and was rearended. A serious leg injury - as well as other injures - were suffered by our client. The insurance company for the other driver blamed our seriously injured client, who spent many weeks in hospitals and rehabilitation facilities, for the injuries she suffered claiming that our client should not have stopped suddenly. We refused to accept anything less than policy limits from three different insurance companies. One at a time, each insurance company saw that we were going to keep fighting until every dollar of the policy limits was paid for our client. We even uncovered an extra insurance policy our client did not even know existed. That insurance company denied any payment whatsoever at the outset, claiming our client had been fully reimbursed at $200,000. Ultimately, however, we continued to push the case forward until every insurance carrier was forced to pay the policy limits our serious injured client was entitled to receive under the law.

Child Injury Accident
$227,000.00

A young boy was at a friend's house when he was shot by a flare gun and received an eye injury. The shooting took place in Phoenix Arizona. Claims were made against both the family of the young shooter for allowing their son to have possession of the flare gun and for the boy shooting an innocent boy in his eye. Claims were also brought successfully against the family that allowed the weapon in their home without supervision. All defendants initially denied liability entirely or tried to blame each other or blame our client for the incident. We refused to accept anything less than full value of the case and proceeded with full litigation of the issues. Finally, the defendants both agreed to a split of fault and paid our client for the serious and permanent eye injury that was suffered.

N.D. v. Progressive Insurance Company; USAA Insurance Company
$216,572.28

N.D. came to us after suffering serious injury following an intersection traffic collision when she was driving straight and the defendant turned left right in front of her. She was facing two significant hurdles to collecting fair compensation for the injuries the other driver had caused; first, the other driver claimed he had a left-turn green arrow and accused N.D. or thus running a red light, second, the police reported indicated N.D. suffered moderate injuries, when in fact they turned out to be worse. With our help, we were able to obtain a fair result for this deserving client.

Hit-and-Run Accident
$215,000.00

Car accident in Surprise, Arizona. Our client was with her family when her car was hit by another vehicle. There was a complicated liability dispute because one of the drivers that caused the accident fled the scene. As a result, we not only had to try to win the fight for the first insurance company of the vehicle that actually collided with our client's vehicle to pay limits, we also had to make a claim against both the uninsured and underinsured portions of our clients insurance at the same time. This led to a protracted fight over which insurance company and which coverage should apply, and for how much. Extensive negotiations took place where we refused to accept anything less than full value of our clients claim for every single dollar of the insurance policy that applied. With all three claims moving forward at the same time, we were still able to collect the full policy limits on each and every claim being made.

Work Injury Accident
J.P. v. American Family Insurance
$200,000.00

Our client was referred to us by another attorney. There was a liability dispute in this case because some witnesses said it was our client's fault and other witnesses said it was the other driver's fault. Our client sustained a L1/L2 fracture. He was unable to work for some times. There was a significant worker's compensation lien and we had to work with the carrier which was very complex. Our client was also going through a divorce at the time which made matters complicated. In the end, we were able to settle the case for a fair amount and our client was extremely pleased.

Serious Injury Accident
C.M and her unborn daughter, N.R. v. State Farm Insurance Co.
$200,000.00

C.M. was injured in what could have otherwise been a moderate injury situation. Unfortunately, the crash happened when C.M. was about 7 months pregnant. The result was weeks in the hospital for C.M. trying to keep the trauma of the incident from causing a premature birth. Then, due to what ultimately did become a premature birth as a result of the collision, an additional settlement was needed for the harm caused to the baby girl that was born prematurely and had to stay in neo-natal intensive care. Were it not for the collision, this would not have occurred.

We were able to obtain a fair result for these clients. C.M was referred to us by the father of her child, a former client who has been giving our name out to friends and coworkers for almost 10 years.

T-Bone Accident
Mom and Daughter T v. American Family Insurance
$165,044.77

This mother and daughter were passengers in a vehicle when the driver of their vehicle turned left in front of oncoming traffic. This exposed Mom T and her young daughter to a direct T-bone collision with the oncoming vehicle. They both suffered injuries as a result. We put American Family Insurance Company on notice of our involvement and we were willing to take the case as far as it needed to go to ensure justice was accomplished. Ultimately, we were able to ensure our clients received reasonable compensation for their injuries.

Passenger Injury Accident
L.P. v. Farmers Insurance and Met Life Insurance
$165,000.00

L.P. was a passenger in a car with her friend who was the driver. The other driver was at fault but there was some testimony that our client's driver was at fault as well. At first, L.P. went to another attorney who did not practice only injury and wrongful death law. The case sat around for a year and in our client's opinion the attorney was not processing her case at all. We talked to L.P. and gave her some questions to ask the lawyer and told her to give the lawyer a chance as maybe he was doing a good job and just not communicating. She called us back and said after talking with the lawyer, she was surer than ever that she needed to hire an expert injury lawyer like Mark. We brought in the case and after reviewing it discovered that there was an insurance policy that the former attorney was not aware of that would apply to this case. There was also medical coverage we found that was applicable as well. As you can imagine, our client was ecstatic. We settled her case within a reasonable amount of time and shortly thereafter she referred us one of her friends who was in a serious car accident.

Tire Blow Out Accident
J.L. v. State Farm
$150,000.00

Our client had surgery to his femur from a Gilbert car accident. At first he and his wife tried to handle the case on their own. They thought it should be easy to have policy limits tendered. We talked to them and gave them some pointers on what they could do and told them to call us back if they were still having trouble. After a couple of months, they call us back because they were receiving letters from their health insurance and the hospital attorney's for liens and the insurance company still would not tender limits. We got involved at that point and were able to get the entire policy limits plus get the hospital to waive its lien and the health insurance company to reduce its lien by 75%. These clients were referred by the President of the Chamber of Commerce.

Uncapped Policy Limits Award
K.W. v. Country Companies Insurance Company
$150,000.00

K.W. and her family had just moved to Arizona when a teenage driver made the type of mistake more often made by inexperienced drivers: the teenager turned left in front of the vehicle in which K.W. was a passenger. However, the insurance company refused to offer the policy limits, attempting to argue that it was not the fault of their own driver. As K.W. had a serious and permanent knee injury, we demanded policy limits or told the insurance company we would pursue the case all to trial. Apparently thinking we were just bluffing, the insurance company refused to offer the policy limits until after we had filed the lawsuit. At that point, it was too late, and we followed through on our statement that we would take the case all the way to trial. The underlying policy limits had only been $25,000, but the insurance company ended up paying the entire $150,000 jury verdict. It was an example of the advantage of hiring a firm where the lawyers believe in their ability to argue the case before a jury, and are willing to invest the time and energy in preparing to take a case to trial.

Premises Liability / Slip and Fall
$140,000.00

Client stepped off of unusually dangerous step on walkway at mall. Client sustained a hip fracture. Defendant did not deny the injury, but denied any wrongdoing and denied liability for causing the injury. We used our experience, resources, and hard work to locate a total of four different people who had suffered injury at this same location due to the same defect. We even located and retained an expert witness who had warned the defendant of this dangerous condition years earlier, but the condition was never fixed.

Multi-Defendant Car Accident
K.A. v. City of Phoenix; State Farm Insurance Company
$125,000.00

This single, hard-working young woman was involved in a traffic accident when the driver of another vehicle ran through a stop sign and crashed into the side of K.A.'s car. The driver blamed the City for allowing a tree to obscure the stop sign. Not surprisingly, the City blamed the driver, which left K.A. with significant injury and two possible defendants each refusing to accept responsibility while they blamed the other. After over a year in the court system, we were able to achieve a worthwhile settlement for this deserving client.

Dangerous Roadway Accident
$125,000.00

Client was a driver in vehicle when another vehicle attempted to take a left hand turn causing a significant collision. The client sustained a dislocated shoulder. When a fair settlement was not offered, we filed a lawsuit and showed a willingness to take the case to trial. The case was settled for full policy limits shortly thereafter. Our client owed many medical providers money for his treatment. In addition to the favorable settlement, we worked with our client's lienholders and were able to get them to reduce their liens by about 75%, greatly increasing the amount of money our client received for his injuries.

$125,000.00

L.R. was a teenager when she got into the car with another teenage driver. The driver of the vehicle she was in crossed over the yellow line and struck the car coming at them in the opposite direction. The police officer noted the severity of the collision in the initial report, and L.R.'s father wanted to make sure his daughter was taken care of. He contacted our office and we sat down with L.R. and her father. In the end, we were able to achieve a fair settlement for this deserving teenager, who was fortunately able to make an excellent recovery from her injuries.

Store Parking Lot Accident
N.B. v. State Farm Insurance Company
$125,000.00

N.B. was leaving a pet store when a car struck him. The driver of the other vehicle admitted failing to see him as he crossed through the parking lot, and ran right into him. N.B. was immediately hospitalized, and he called upon our office to help him through the process. We immediately put the insurance company on notice that we would be helping N.B., and that they were not allowed to contact our client at any time. We handled everything for N.B., ultimately including a reasonable settlement as compensation for the injuries caused by the at-fault driver.

Workplace Injury
D.M. v. Allstate Insurance
$125,000.00

Our client was hit in a parking lot as pedestrian by a co-worker. She was referred to us by another attorney. She had workers compensation and was contacted by them and told that she would have a lien and that her benefits could be taken away. Workers compensation laws in Arizona are somewhat confusing. There are different steps that need to be addressed and the statute of limitations is different when you have a worker's compensation claim. Our client required foot surgery. We were able to get the workers compensation to reduce by 90%. Our client wrote us an email thanking us and copied the referring attorney. When we later talked to the referring attorney, he said he was impressed with our client service. He said after our client told him all the great things we did for her, it would not have surprised him if we delivered cookies and milk to her doorstep. Although we have never quite done that, our clients do get the best of treatment and we were happy to hear that she was content with our client service and the settlement.

Car Accident
S.H. vs. Farmers and State Farm Insurance
$125,000.00

Our client went by ambulance to the hospital and thought she was feeling fine. After some time, she discovered she had a shoulder injury which required injections. The insurance company paid their policy limits although our client had a pre-existing shoulder injury.

Dog Bite Accident
R.A. v. American Family Insurance
$122,000.00

Triple-The-Result for a Deserving Dog Bite Victim

A woman was spending time with her boyfriend when the dog in the home, for no apparent reason, bit our client in her face. She suffered a significant injury that included permanent scarring. She was obviously traumatized not only by the attack but also by the permanent reminder of the dog bite. She turned to us for help and the insurance company involved made an offer to try to get the case settled without litigation. Our client instructed us to do everything we can to make sure that there was a full recovery on the case. Therefore, we took the case into litigation and got within a few months of trial. When the discovery was closed and the rest of the process was completed – and while facing the certainty of a trial – the insurance company dramatically increased their offer from the initial one that they had made and ultimately provided a recovery that tripled the amount that was received by our client. Our client's willingness to trust us and allow us to push this case through litigation forced a very well-deserved result for our client.

Slip and Fall
N.A. vs. Amica Insurance
$120,000.00

Our client was injured due to a leaking sprinkler. She hurt her left ankle/foot. She fell at an apartment complex while she was walking the dog. The apartment complex refused to accept responsibility but we disagree and filed a lawsuit. We were able to demonstrate that the sprinkler had been broken for some time. We also hired an engineer who offered testimony that helped us prove or case.

Freeway Accident
S.G. v. State Farm Insurance; Progressive Insurance Company
$120,000.00

Our client was driving on the freeway when another vehicle cut her off. As a result of the other driver's negligence, our client suffered a fractured ankle. We were hired by our client to help her through a process that required claims against two different insurance companies. We immediately notified both insurance companies that we had been retained and did not allow them to have any contact with our client while she recuperated from her injuries. We instructed by insurance companies that all questions and issues would have to be directed to our office. After S.G. had completed the treatment she needed, we were able to achieve fair compensation for her.

Trucking Accident
S.K. v. 21st Century and Progressive Insurance
$115,000.00

Our client was in a truck accident. Her air bags deployed and she got burns on her hands. There was extensive damage to her truck. She had a meniscus tear as a result of the truck accident. In the truck, our client had her dog that was also injured in the accident. The insurance company also paid the bills for the dog. Our client and dog are now feeling well. In fact, our client is living her dream of travelling the world and seeing new sights. We recently got a card from her with "Wow" on the cover thanking us for everything we did. We were very appreciative and are very excited she is feeling well and able to live out her dream.

J.G. was a barber who was spending time at home depot when an associate who worked at the store dropped a heavy item on top of him. J.G. suffered a shoulder injury which caused him to miss time from work and incur lost wages due to the need to use his shoulder when he was cutting hair.

Bike Accident
S.M. vs. USAA Insurance Company
$100,000.00

An SUV failed to keep a proper lookout at nighttime and ran directly into our client on his bicycle. Our client was taken to a hospital. Our client had only one beer prior to getting on his bicycle. While not the best choice, nobody suggested that this had any effect on his driving that evening or on the cause of the incident. However, the insurance company saw this as a way to avoid responsibility for its driver’s actions and wanted to avoid paying what was owed. After we researched the case further and demonstrated the fact that this case had nothing to do with alcohol, the insurance company backed down and agreed to pay the full $100,000 policy limits. However, our client owed over $100,000 in liens, so if we stopped our fight there our client would be left with nothing. Instead, we fought for our client with two lienholders. In the first instance, we were able to negotiate a lien from $39,283.77 down to $5,283.87. Even more helpful to our client, we were able to get a lien of $64,176.60 completely waived so our client owed nothing – now or in the future- and was able to receive a significant amount of money and have everyone related to the case paid off entirely.

Motorcycle Accident
W.L. vs. "Confidential" Insurance Company
$100,000.00

This was a case with a terrible injury to a fantastic individual. When our client contacted us, we knew immediately that an attorney was unnecessary. We explained that our involvement in the case would only create attorneys’ fees that would take money away from our deserving client. We provided free advice to the client and explained to him how he should go about settling the case. Usually this is not as easy, but due the way his case was set up a lawyer was of no value at the time. Unfortunately, when the insurance company realized he was not working with a lawyer, the insurance company apparently saw an opportunity to take advantage of the situation. They refused to pay the $100,000 they owed our client. We quickly got working on his case and were able to get the full amount of policy limits $100,000 and we then forced the insurance company to pay an additional $33,333 for our attorney's fees so that our client would not be harmed a single penny due to our involvement. Generally, the attorneys’ fees are deducted from the settlement, but the conduct of this insurance carrier led to an even better result for our client than if he had called any lawyer that would have tried to get involved immediately in the case.

Motorcycle Accident
S.K vs. Geico Insurance Company
$100,000

Our client was sent by ambulance to the hospital at the scene of the accident. The other driver blamed fault saying our client was speeding. We were able to prove that the at-fault drive did a quick lane change and that she was not paying attention to the roadway. We were able to secure policy limits and even found additional coverage that our client was not aware existed.

Pedestrian Accident
J.G. v. USAA Insurance Company; Farmer's Insurance Company
$100,000

J.G. was a crossing guard helping out to make sure children were able to get across the street safely. Despite the fact that a motorist sped through the school zone and struck J.G., the at-fault insurance company refused to make a reasonable offer. We took the case to litigation, filed a lawsuit and fought for our client. This crossing guard who suffered injury to both knees ultimately prevailed, as she deserved, with our help and persistence.

Like her two family members, she turned to our office to ensure that she could receive fair and reasonable compensation for her injuries.

Catastrophic Injury
$100,000.00

Client was travelling with her husband when they were rearended by another vehicle. The Arizona Department of Public Safety came to the scene of the accident. At the scene of the accident, while still in shock and with adrenaline going, our client only stated that she had suffered soft tissue neck injuries. At first, she simply sought basic therapy. However, she ultimately had surgery that was caused by the accident. However, due to the delay in severe complaints the insurance company attempted to argue that the neck injury was a pre-existing condition and was unwilling to admit that the care and treatment were fully caused by the rear end car accident. After negotiation, the insurance company offered full policy limits without a lawsuit having to be filed.

Changing Lanes Accident
R.G. v. State Farm Mutual Insurance Company
$100,000.00

R.G. was the passenger in a car driven by her husband when she was hit by a vehicle changing lanes into the rear of their car, causing them to go into a spin. The insurance company refused to admit the significance of the injury that was caused, so we accepted this case and were able to prevail with a settlement that compensated her for the injuries suffered as a result of the defendant's fault.

Rear-End Accident
J.D. v. Liberty Auto Insurance, USAA Insurance Company

J.D. was rear-ended at a high rate of speed on the freeway. J.D. was thrown from his vehicle and suffered multiple injuries. Fortunately, he made a recovery in near-record time, and was back on the job not long after the incident. J.D. is a success story, not just because we were able to obtain a fair settlement in a short period of time, but also because of how quickly he healed and got back on his feet, back to work, and back to living his life.

Shoulder Injury Accident
M.H. v. State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company
$100,000.00

M.H. tried to handle his injury case on his own, and got nowhere for almost a full year. The insurance company would not pay for the medical bills and related losses M.H. incurred due to his shoulder injury. To make matters worse, they refused to accept any fault for the actions their driver had caused. After a year of getting nowhere, M.H. decided he would trust his case with us. We were able to get the entire matter resolved in just a few months.

Her parents thought it would be best to handle the case without an attorney, but found that they were not able to obtain a fair result without some help. M.G.'s parents contacted our office and made the decision that it would be in their daughter's best interest to put this case in our hands. Fortunately, M.G. completely healed, and with our help justice was done and M.G. has money put away for college and more.

Bike Accident
B.R. v. Allstate
$78,000.00

Our client was involved in a Buckeye bike accident due to a dog chasing him while he was riding his bike. The dog owner had received previous complaints to keep his dog on a leash and did not listen. Our client was lucky in that he had minimal medical bills but did sustain a torn tendon to his elbow requiring surgery. There was disputed liability in terms of why our client fell down but in the end we were able to bring the case to mediation and our client was very happy with the results.

Motorcycle Accident
E.G. v. Hartford Insurance

Our client was riding a motorcycle when a driver of a vehicle turned into him because of the sun being in his eyes. Our client was airlifted to the hospital but was lucky enough to not have any serious injuries. Unfortunately, he did not have any health insurance. We were able to contact all providers and they agreed to significant reductions. Our client was very pleased with the settlement.

Slip and Fall
B.B. vs. Liberty Mutual Insurance
$50,000.00

Our client was getting out of her vehicle when she slipped and fell because an apartment complex allowed the sidewalks and walkways to fall into a state of disrepair. That combined with failure to properly light the area at night, led to our client suffering a significant hand injury that required surgery to correct. Our client choose to litigate the matter and file suit after the other side refused to make an offer that our client felt was appropriate. We were able to ultimately force the defendant to enter into a settlement on excellent terms that left our client properly compensated, all bills re-paid, and money in her pocket for all she had suffered.

Slip and Fall Injury
C.C. v. Farmers Insurance
$35,000

A worker at a well-known, national fast food chain apparently wanted to go home early. So instead of following normal procedures and mopping the floor after the dining room closed for the day, the employee decided to start mopping with two customers still in the store. After one customer went to the bathroom, the employee mopped the area just outside the bathroom door. Not surprisingly, the woman was hurt when she exited the bathroom and slipped on the wet, soapy water on the tile floor. Adding insult to injury, it was reported that the manager on duty at the restaurant even refused to call 911 to help the injured customer.

When the woman learned her broken wrist would prevent her from working at the job that paid her bills, she contact the fast food chain and asked for help. They refused to help so this nice lady called our office. After over a year of collecting witness statements, entering litigation, handling depositions, retaining experts, and many other steps, we were able to force the chain to step up to the plate and pay our client for the injuries they caused through their own neglect.

Motor Vehicle Accident
S.T. v. AMICA
S.T. v. Farmers Insurance
$18,329

Remaining Part of the "Husband and Wife Law Team Family"

In 1999, a young man was injured in a motor vehicle collision. He turned to The Husband and Wife Law Team for help and the case was resolved. Unfortunately, nearly 14 years later his wife and the mother of his children was involved in another motor vehicle wreck. Where did he turn? He turned to the same firm he had trusted years earlier before he was married with children. And when the insurance company refused to make a fair settlement offer to our client we took the case all the way through arbitration. When the insurance company tried to make an offer on the morning of arbitration we rejected it which ultimately led to a recovery greater than any they had previously offered. So that counts two victories for one couple – 15 years apart! It is nice that developing relationships with people can lead to trust and future victories years later. However, we do not like "repeat customers" and we have instructed this family to make sure they are never involved in another motor vehicle accident under any circumstances! Stay safe.

Policy Limit Case Results

Serious Injury Accident
R.T. v. Infinity Insurance Company
R.T. v. Hartford Insurance
Entire Policy Limits Victory

Our client came to us for help after he suffered serious injuries while standing near a fast food drive-through window and the car in line unexpectedly and rapidly accelerated into our client. Our client was thrown in the air and burns (including some third degree burns) over 20 percent of his body.

The initial reaction, due to insurance coverage issue and an attempt to blame the vehicle manufacturer, was a total denial of any liability or payment whatsoever. Our client had suffered life-altering injuries at the time of this incident and the insurance company simply refused to pay. We were undeterred, and continued to fight until the insurance company paid its entire policy limit. Not satisfied, we argued for additional coverage from the same policy and the insurer – which had tried to deny any fault at all – ended up being convinced to pay out two different policy limits to our client.

However, our client owed $135,000 in medical billing liens. With a team effort – led by Alexis Breyer – we convinced the hospital to accept only $1,700 in full payment of the lien – a big victory as it greatly increased the money our client was able to receive.

Motorcycle Accident
S. B. v. Progressive Insurance

Double insurance policy limits, Medical Lien Reductions

When the Policy Limits Are Not Enough

Our client was on his motorcycle when he was hit by a negligent driver who failed to keep a proper lookout for motorcycles. Our client was thrown through the air 40 feet which led him to spend multiple nights in the hospital. However, there was not enough insurance and therefore even after forcing a policy limits offer from the insurance companies involved there was not enough money to make a difference for our client. So we did not stop at that point. Instead, we fought for every nickel and dime we could by getting his medical liens reduced (but still paid so he would not end up owing money) which included tens of thousands of dollars of lien reductions allowing our client to move forward with his life. Best of all, our client had a complete medical recovery which was, of course, the biggest victory of all.

How the Injury Book Authored by the Husband and Wife Law Team Protected a Future Client

Many years ago, The Husband and Wife Law Team, Alexis and Mark Breyer, undertook a significant project: to write a one-of-a-kind book, to regular people, so they could understand injury law to protect themselves either before or after an accident. One of the key discussions in that book is the importance of increasing the amount of uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage that is purchased in case somebody else causes an injury. Having read our book, an individual raised his underinsured motorist coverage. Months later he was involved in an incident where his niece was injured as a result of the negligence of another driver who did not have sufficient coverage. Because he had followed our advice and purchased more insurance his niece – who he sent to us for our guidance and help – therefore was able to not only collect the full insurance policy limits from the at-fault driver but also utilized the important underinsured coverage to make a big difference in her life. We are proud not only of achieving two policy limits settlements in one case for this deserving individual but also gratified to see that the information we are providing is helping people in a time of need.

Pedestrian Accident
R.K. vs. USAA and State Farm
Policy Limits

A driver of a vehicle turned left and hit our client who was in the cross walk. Our client suffered a compound fracture to his right lower leg. Originally, our client owed well over $100,000 to many different medical providers – enough to drive many people to bankruptcy. However, in addition to fighting for the best settlement that could occur (every dollar of the insurance policy limits available in the case) we were able to win an agreement with the hospital for the hospital to accept $500 as full and final payment: even though the hospital was claiming it was actually owed $98,209.66.

F.D. v. GEICO Insurance

In Desperate Need of Help

Our client was spending time in rehabilitation when his wife and daughter encouraged him to call The Husband and Wife Law Team. By the time his medical care was completed he owed $74,000.00 to medical providers. He not only had endured a long road to recovery when he was struck on his motorcycle by a negligent driver but he was also facing potential bankruptcy. However, in our office we never allow cases to resolve without fighting both for the best possible recovery but also to reduce the amount of liens that are owed. $74,000.00 in medical bills is an overwhelming amount of liens to owe. But by the time we were done negotiating with the lien holders and fighting for a settlement we were able to make a significant difference for our client and change his financial future by reducing the medical bills owed from over $74,000.00 down to just over $3,000.00! That, combined with our efforts to achieve an excellent settlement result allowed him to move forward with his life and, hopefully, give a big hug and thank you to his wife and daughter for encouraging him to trust our office along the way.

A driver of a vehicle failed to keep a proper lookout and ran into our client who was crossing the street on his bicycle. Unfortunately, the police officer found our client completely responsible since he did not cross the street at the crosswalk. Our client called multiple other lawyers, all of whom said the case could not be won. Finally, our client heard of our efforts and successes and contacted us. Not only did our involvement change the outcome, we were able to persuade the insurance company to pay out every dollar of the available policy limits for its driver that ran into our client.

Policy Limit Case Results

Motorcycle Accident
J.D. vs. State Farm Insurance
Policy Limits

This case involved a young man on a motorcycle. Determining who was at fault was complicated. The insurance company pointed to some witnesses it had that said its insured was not responsible and pointing the blame towards our client. Undeterred, pointed to the observations of another witness that was much more favorable to our client’s position that their insured was at fault. Our client was seriously injured and incurred a hospital bill of almost $200,000. Unfortunately, our client had no health insurance at all. We were able to convince the insurance company to pay policy limits and the hospital reduced the amount our client owed to under $10,000. Liability disputes require injury attorneys who have the experience necessary and the trial victories to prove that they are willing and able to prove the truth of what occurred on behalf of their clients.

Catastrophic Injury
R.K. v. State Farm
R.K. v. USAA
Insurance Policy Limits

Our client was involved in a serious car accident in Sun City West that resulted in him being in the trauma center for 30 days. He had multiple fractures in his leg. He searched for a lawyer because he knew he needed help. At first, he was not sure what lawyer he wanted to hire. He received a copy of our Arizona Accident Book and decided to choose us as his attorneys. We were able to secure a policy limits offer from all insurance companies involved. In Arizona, many car accident victims are not aware that the health insurance company may have a right to reimbursement. We were able to negotiate this reimbursement bill down to half by applying different legal case research. In addition to health insurance, our client also had Medicare which can be difficult to work with in an Arizona car accident case. We were able to work everything out with Medicare and our client received a significant amount of money. Last time we talk to him he told us, "You guys did great work."

He tried to swerve to avoid the car accident but could not get out of the way due to a lot of traffic. He remained at the Flagstaff Medical Center for two weeks. He had multiple fractures. At first, he tried to handle his case on his own but it became complicated because there were multiple insurance companies involved and he was getting different lien letters from the hospital and other medical providers. He was referred to us by a former client. We were able to arrange to meet him and immediately began working on his case. We were able to secure policy limits from all insurance companies and did different case research because one of the companies was denying payment.

D.B. was at the gas station with her son. She was walking away from the cashier at a gas station when she was hit by a car.  Our client was pinned under the tire and broke her hip.  She was rushed to the hospital by ambulance and had immediate surgery requiring rods, screws and pins to fix her hip. Her daughter searched on the internet for an attorney and although at first she was weary to hire an attorney, she met with us and was confident we could do a good job. The insurance company initially offered half of policy limits but we stayed stern on accepting only the entire amount of the policy limits. After discussing the case at length and receiving a favorable permanent impairment rating from a medical provider, the insurance company agreed to tender policy limits.

Rollover Accident

Insurance Policy Limits

D.F. was involved in a rollover accident and claimed another vehicle had cut her off. Unfortunately this client was not wearing her seatbelt at the time of the incident. To make matters appear worse at the outset, the police report indicated that the witnesses had aligned against our client. However, our client knew that she did not bear the fault for this incident, and she retained us to investigate if anything could be done to obtain a reasonable outcome. Our investigation included a statement taken from another witness to the incident, which supported our client's observations. After we tracked down the defendant in Idaho, we provided this information we had uncovered to the insurance company and demanded policy limits, which were then paid in full.

Auto Accident
N.B. v. Permanent General Insurance Company
Insurance Policy Limits

N.B. was injured in an automobile collision. She knew the other driver was at fault, and she had the other driver's insurance information. She wanted to handle the case without a lawyer, but in spite of her best efforts, she could not even get the at-fault driver's insurance company to make an offer to pay for the hospital bills and the money she owed as a result of her injuries. The medical bills were piling up, and she did not know where to turn. Even her own health insurance company refused to pay, claiming that since she was involved in a car accident, the other driver's insurance should pay.

After she hired us, we were able to make her own health insurance company take care of the bills so she should not have to worry. We then demanded every dollar of the available insurance company policy limits or we would proceed towards trial with the case. Faced with this prospect, the insurance company of the at-fault driver who had refused to make any offer before we were hired paid every dollar under the policy to our deserving client.

Multiple Injury Accident
R.L. v. Progressive Insurance Company; Viking Insurance Company
Insurance Policy Limits

R.L. suffered a significant injury. To complicate matters, there were many people who claimed significant injury, but there was insufficient money to compensate everybody. The insurance company did not want to give our client the full limit allowed to him under the policy, as they intended to divide up the available money amongst all the people who claimed injury. With our help, R.L. was able to get the full policy limits that he was entitled to under the policy, helping him with the bills and other costs he suffered as a result of this injury.

We went over all the different scenarios of his claim. Our client is now moving to California and we were able to help him sell his house by setting him up with a realtor and tying up some loose ends. Although we do not like repeat clients because it means a former client was injured again, there is nothing more gratifying as owners of a law office to have former clients call us to help them again.

Dog Bite Injury
The R Family v. Fidelity National Insurance Company
Insurance Policy Limits

A mother and her daughter were visiting the home of a dog owner when that dog unexpectedly attacked the young daughter, biting her on her face and causing scars. After these parents first contacted our office, they had second thoughts and considered trying to handle the case without a lawyer. However, the insurance company refused to offer anything at all, denying any payments were available under the policy. In fact, the insurance company denied that the policy even covered dog bites.

The mother and father then retained us to help their daughter, and we filed a lawsuit and argued that the insurance contract must cover this injury, in spite of the policy language the insurer attempted to rely upon. After months of litigation, the insurance company was finally paid all monies available under the policy. As a result of the decision by these loving parents to fight for their daughter and retain our office - instead of accepting the complete denial of the claim - we were able to secure money to set aside for future medical care if their daughter can use it for the scarring, and we were also able to secure a structured settlement that will ultimately allow this beautiful girl to go to college or help by a new home when she gets older.

Motorcycle Accident
S.D. v. AIG Insurance Company
Insurance Policy Limits

S.D. was a single woman riding as a passenger on a motorcycle when the crash occurred. Her injuries required her to seek hospital care. After S.D. hired us, we demanded payment of the entire policy limit, yet the insurance company tried to deny this client fair compensation under the law. Instead of agreeing to accept something less than a fair settlement, we pursued the case well into litigation. As we prepared to take the case to trial, and after months of litigation, the insurance company finally backed down and offered every dollar available under the applicable insurance policy. Our client accepted this offer, having received the benefit of a willingness to pursue a fair result when an adverse insurance company is being unreasonable.

Wrongful Death
N.E. v. State Farm
Insurance Policy Limits

This beloved daughter was crossing the road at night and was hit and killed. When the family turned to us for help, they had not been provided with any information from the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office. Our investigation for this family included speaking with a Spanish speaking witness who, though she admitted the daughter was killed when she crossed outside of the crosswalk, also placed some blame on the driver that struck the daughter for not even paying attention to the roadway. This was information that had apparently never been obtained by the investigating police department. In spite of the initial investigation from the police department we were able to earn a settlement of every dollar available under the at-fault driver's insurance company policy.

* Breyer Law Offices, P.C., "The Husband and Wife Law Team", does not offer any guarantee of case results. The reality is that guarantees are almost never appropriate at the outset of representation in any personal injury matter. Almost every personal injury matter is contested and each case must be properly evaluated and pursued based upon the individual merits and circumstances of that case. The cases mentioned in this site demonstrate the types of cases handled by The Husband and Wife Law Team. They are not guarantees of future results and are not intended to be considered as a guarantee. The ultimate awards listed or discussed throughout this site were obtained through settlements, verdicts, or judgments of one form or another. As you will see on many websites – both legal and financial – past performance is no guarantee of future results. We agree that this is true, and think it is vital to not only look for a firm with a list of successes, but also to find a lawyer that you feel is the right fit for you and that is committed and capable of working with you towards your goals.

Note: in these cases an insurance company is listed as the "defendant." In most cases, the "defendant" is the person who had insurance coverage through that company. The company is listed as an example of the many insurance companies we have cases against. Every case and client listed is an actual client that trusted our firm. Every insurance company is a company we have fought on behalf of our clients. In some cases, the name of the insurance companies is removed/changed/hidden due to confidentiality or other provisions of the settlement.)
