    Medical Malpractice

    A young man died at hospital following routine surgery. We investigated and found out the hospital staff gave the young man 4-5 times the prescribed dosage of pain narcotics and failed to monitor him post-operatively for over 5 hours to see how he was recovering. The patient went into cardiorespiratory arrest due to the overdose or narcotics and died. Despite compelling evidence of negligence the hospital vigorously found the case for several years. The case settled shortly before trial.

  • $1,600,000
    Brain Injury

    A young man at a mental health facility suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury when he was attacked by another resident. Our initial investigation showed the facility was chronically understaffed. After a lengthy litigation process and numerous depositions we discovered that the two counselors in charge of residents’ supervision at the time the attack occurred were off playing cards, and the attacking resident had a known history of prior violence. The case was complicated because our client had several overlapping pre-existing conditions, but it was ultimately settled shortly before trial.

  • $1,500,000
    Automobile Collision We represented the family of a woman who was killed by a commercial van in a head-on collision. Our investigation into the case revealed that the driver of the van was a temporary employee supplied by a staffing company. The driver had a suspended drivers' license in two different states, as well as a history of previous motor vehicle accidents. Our investigation also discovered that the staffing company failed to do a routine background check on the driver's motor vehicle record before hiring him. The case settled for $1,500,000.
  • $600,000
    Nursing Home Neglect An elderly female nursing home resident suffering from Alzheimer's dementia was neglected by the nursing home staff in a rural Georgia town. As a result she developed massive Stage IV pressure sores (also called bedsores or decubitus ulcers) on her coccyx and buttocks, urinary tract infections, malnutrition and dehydration, and a fractured hip after a fall. Our detailed investigation uncovered that this nursing home had several other previous similar incidents of resident neglect, and the facility was chronically understaffed. The case settled shortly before trial for $600,000, which is believed to be the largest nursing home settlement ever recorded in the rural, conservative jurisdiction.

    Medical Malpractice

    Our client suffered nerve damage in his right hand following the negligent administration of an arterial blood gas test by a hospital nurse. The hospital strongly denied any negligence on the part of their nurse, but through our investigation we discovered the hospital was understaffed. The nurse admitted under oath that she would often see over 60 patients during her shift, and we used the hospital’s own policies and procedures to show how the nurse had acted negligently. We offered to settle the case prior to litigation for $225,000.00, but the hospital refused to make an offer. The case went to trial two times—the first time was a hung jury but the second time was a unanimous verdict in favor of the Plaintiff and more than double what we offered to originally settle for.

    Automobile Collision

    Our client suffered two herniated discs in her neck that required spinal fusion surgery. Fortunately, she made a strong recovery after her surgery and the case settled at mediation.

  • $450,000.00
    Automobile Collision

    Our older client suffered a herniated disc in a relatively minor automobile collision that required spinal fusion surgery. The defendant’s insurance carrier initially contested the case because they did not believe such a serious injury could occur in a minor “fender bender,” and contended the injury was pre-existing. Our client’s own insurance company also tried to deny the claim and initially refused to pay his surgical bills under his vehicle’s Med Pay coverage. We obtained testimony from our client’s surgeon that linked the cause of the herniated disc to the automobile collision, and we ultimately obtained the policy limits from both the defendant’s insurance carrier and our client’s underinsured motorist carrier. We also filed suit against our client’s insurance carrier for denying the Med Pay claim, and ultimately recovered the full policy limits plus penalties for attorneys’ fees and costs after discovering the insurance company had denied our claim even though they hired an independent medical examiner who told them the injury was caused by the automobile collision.

  • $400,000
    Automobile Collision

    A man in his 60's was killed in a head-on automobile collision after a vehicle crossed the grass median of the highway and entered oncoming traffic. The vehicle that caused the collision only had minimal insurance, however our investigation of the case revealed another umbrella policy that had been previously undisclosed. The case settled for the insurance policy limits of $400,000.

  • $300,000
    Personal Injury A 15 year old boy was hunting with a friend when the friend began to joke around and point his shotgun at the boy, pretending that he was going to shoot him. The gun went off from less than ten yards away, leaving the boy severely wounded in the groin and leg. He had to be life-flighted off the property, and was hospitalized for over a month. Fortunately, the shooter's family had a homeowners' insurance policy that covered the incident. The case settled pursuant to a structured payout format worth over $300,000.
  • $225,000
    Automobile Collision

    Our client was severely injured in an automobile collision, breaking her leg, elbow, and crushing her kneecap. Our investigation of the case revealed that the at-fault driver, a young teenager, had a history of reckless driving in the neighborhood and had been warned by several neighbors to drive more carefully. The case settled for $225,000.

  • $200,000
    Medical Malpractice

    A 4 year old girl was hospitalized for over a month due to respiratory problems, and was eventually discharged to the care of a home nursing agency. The agency was ordered to bring certain medication to the girl that she had to receive within a strict timeframe. When the nursing agency arrived, they did not have the proper medication and did not know how to work the equipment necessary to administer the medication. The nurse left the house and promised to quickly return with the proper medication and equipment. However, she never came back, causing the little girl to suffer a relapse of her symptoms and another hospitalization. Fortunately, there was no long-term injury. The case settled under a structured payout format worth almost $200,000.

  • $150,000
    Medical Malpractice

    Our client was a 68 year old man who had already been rendered a quadriplegic in an automobile accident. He then developed a small skin tear on his coccyx area at a local hospital, and upon discharge a home nursing agency was hired to provide him with skin care to make sure the small tear did not get worse. The home nursing agency failed to provide proper, consistent care, and improperly used a Wound Vac healing device, all of which caused the small tear to deteriorate into a Stage IV bedsore that required corrective surgery. Fortunately, there were no long-term injuries. During our course of investigation, the firm discovered that the home nursing agency had been cited for numerous patient-care violations by regulatory agencies. The case settled for $150,000.

  • $55,000
    Automobile Collision

    Our client was injured in a head-on collision by a drunk driver. Fortunately, our client received relatively minor injuries that healed within two weeks following physical therapy. The at-fault driver was found to be guilty of DUI. Our investigation into the case revealed that the at-fault driver then failed to complete her probation, and received another DUI during the course of the case. After a lengthy litigation process where the at-fault driver's insurance company tried to withdraw its coverage and avoid responsibility for the at-fault driver, the case finally settled for $55,000.

    Medical Malpractice

    A 69 year old man was taken to an Atlanta hospital after suffering a stroke, and placed on blood-thinning medications. While at the hospital he fell and sustained visible bruising to his head. The hospital staff and doctor did not run any CT scans or other tests to rule out the possibility of internal bleeding. That night, there was an eight hour window where no one checked on the man or otherwise monitored his condition. The man was actually bleeding internally, and died of a hemorrhaging subdural hematoma. The case settled for a confidential amount at the hospital's request.

    Medical Malpractice

    Our client was a male in his late 30's with a known history of allergic reaction to certain drugs. However, the client's doctor gave him a new drug that contained some of the same ingredients that the client was allergic to. The client suffered a severe allergic reaction and permanent paresthesia (numbness and tingling) in his hands as a result of the negligent prescription of medication. The case settled for a confidential amount at the request of the doctor's liability insurance carrier.

    Nursing Home Abuse

    An elderly Alzheimer's resident had to be transported to a nearby hospital with a fractured leg. At the hospital she reported that a member of the nursing home staff had hit her. Our investigation into the case revealed that the nursing home did not do a thorough investigation into the resident's allegations, and in fact was cited by state regulatory agencies for doing an inadequate investigation. Our investigation also revealed that the resident had suffered several severe pressure sores (also called bedsores or decubitus ulcers) and malnutrition. The nursing home was also found to have altered and forged several medical records claiming to have provided care to the resident on days when she was hospitalized and not even at the nursing home facility. The case settled for a confidential amount at the nursing home's request.

    Nursing Home Neglect & Abuse

    Our clients were the family of an elderly Alzheimer's resident at a national nursing home chain. Their father had died at the nursing home after suffering several infected Stage IV pressure sores (also called bedsores or decubitus ulcers), chronic urinary tract infections, and profound malnutrition and dehydration that left him weighing less than 98 lbs. at his death. Our investigation into the case also revealed that the family's father had been repeatedly molested by his roommate, and that the nursing home became aware of the situation but failed to take steps to stop the abuse. Further investigation by the firm showed that the nursing home was understaffed and had been repeatedly cited by regulatory authorities for neglecting its residents. The case settled for a confidential amount shortly before trial at the nursing home's request.
