Settlements, Verdicts & Awards

We work hard to obtain maximum compensation for our clients. Constant communication, tough negotiating and expert trial skills have resulted in us obtaining millions of dollars in settlements for the injured.

Here are just a small portion of the damages we were able to collect on behalf of our clients. Due to the confidentiality clauses in some settlement agreements, we cannot share detailed information about many of our biggest cases on our website.

$225,000 SETTLEMENT – Passenger Suffers Severe Injuries After Being Hit by a Semi-truck

This accident occurred in 2020 when our client was a passenger in a vehicle that was traveling through a four-way intersection in Henry County, Ohio. At the same time, a semi-truck approached this intersection, stopped at the posted stop sign, but then continued into the intersection when our client’s vehicle had the right-of-way. The semi-truck driver’s failure to yield resulted in our client’s vehicle to collide head-on with the front passenger sign of the semi-truck. The Henry County Sheriff’s Department responded to the scene and cited the at-fault party for failure to yield the right-of-way. Our client was transported from the scene via ambulance to a nearby hospital for her injuries. She had complaints of chest, pelvic, face, left ankle pain, and the paramedics described an “obvious deformity to her left ankle.” Our client was diagnosed with an extensive list of injuries including complex regional pain syndrome (CPRS), fracture of her left foot, post-traumatic migraine headaches, mild traumatic brain injury, insomnia, as well as other significant injuries. Our client has sought treatment for several years, and her doctors have noted that the client’s CPRS will continue to cause her difficulty with daily activities. CPRS can last a lifetime and will require consistent follow up treatment even if the client is someday able to go into remission.
The client contacted our office to help guide her through her legal recovery action. After taking depositions and an unsuccessful mediation, Attorney Charles Boyk and his litigation team were ultimately able to secure a $225,000 settlement for our client prior to the case proceeding to trial.

$100,000 POLICY LIMIT SETTLEMENT – Pedestrian Killed After Being Struck by Jeep

Our client was walking through a marked crosswalk when a driver made a left-hand turn into our client’s walkway. The driver did not see our client and ended up colliding with his person. Following the collision, our client was transported from the scene via ambulance and was treated at a nearby hospital. Unfortunately, he had suffered a skull fracture and was without brain function for several days before he ultimately passed. The surviving family contacted our office to pursue a wrongful death action against the at-fault driver. Attorney Mike Bruno and his pre-litigation team were able to procure the $100,000 policy limits from the other party’s insurance carrier for the surviving family. While any amount of money is little compensation for the loss of a loved one, this settlement can provide the family some relief for the financial burden that resulted from the driver’s negligence.
