Case Results

Car Dealership Negligence

Car Accidents

May 2020

Our clients, a family of five, sustained various injuries when their minivan experienced a tire blow out and tread separation. The minivan had been purchased "as is" from an auto dealership in Lexington two weeks before the event. Through the use of several experts, we were able to show the van's tires were inherently dangerous due to age and weathering, and that the dealership should not have sold the subject van without first replacing the tires.

Outcome - $550,000

Facial/Dental Injuries

Car Accidents

January 2017

Our client, a 2-year-old boy, was ejected from his rear car seat sustaining facial lacerations and four lost teeth. With the assistance of a dental expert, we were able to establish that our client would likely experience speech development problems and would likely also have alignment issues when his adult teeth eventually came in.

Outcome - $120,000 (policy limits)
