Our firm’s largest personal injury case settlements
The personal injury system allows an injured person to receive financial compensation after he or she has been harmed due to negligence or the intentional conduct of another party. Damages can include bodily injury as well as injuries that result in mental and emotional pain and suffering.
Every year thousands of personal injury cases are brought in an effort to compensate the victim or “plaintiff”– to make he or she “whole” again. Some damages, such as hospital bills and property damage, are easy to put a dollar figure on, but others, such as pain and suffering, are difficult to quantify. Therefore, court settlements that adequately compensate the plaintiff are not always a sure thing.
Los Angeles personal injury attorney, Greg Yates, has over 30 years of experience representing clients in personal injury cases and has been at the center of many high-profile cases, such as the LAPD Rampart Scandal, in which he was successful in recovering more than $20 million dollars for his clients who were victims of civil rights violations. Mr. Yates and his associates have been successful at recovering over half a billion dollars on behalf of clients through awards, jury verdicts, and some of the largest personal injury settlements in Los Angeles.
Not all cases are the same
A majority of PI lawsuits are settled before they can go to trial through negotiated settlements. However, there are cases in which the victim has sustained serious injuries, injuries that have resulted in a permanent disability, or even death. These types of personal injury cases — catastrophic injuries, wrongful death, serious motor vehicle accidents — necessitate going to trial in order for the victim or plaintiff to receive adequate compensation for his or her pain and suffering, to pay for hospital bills, and future medical care.
