Birth Injury
$12.0 Million
A mother was given excessive Pitocin during labor which caused brain damage to her newborn child. Shortly after filing the lawsuit, the hospital and doctor offered $12 million to settle the case. This money will be used to take care of the child and give her as full a life as possible under the circumstances.
Birth Injury
$10.0 Million
A routine ultrasound taken just prior to her due date showed that the twins were in fetal distress and emergency procedures needed to be undertaken. The radiologist misread the ultrasound noting it was normal. One of the infants was stillborn at birth and the other infant suffered profound brain damage until the time of his death at the age of 7. The hospital and doctor settled the case for $10 million.
Injured Worker
$8.3 Million
Carpenter was installing panels at a local job site and fell from a hydraulic lift resulting in serious injuries.
Emergency Room Error
$8.0 Million
A woman was mistakenly given a death penalty drug when she was admitted to a hospital with a stomach ache. The drug, which is a paralytic agent, caused the woman to stop breathing. She went into cardiac arrest and although she was rescued by the emergency room doctor, she suffered brain damage.
$7.0 Million
A young girl was injured in a collision when her mother had to swerve in order to avoid a Pace Van. The mother of an 18-month-old who sustained a lacerated liver after a medical-transportation van allegedly cut off the mother’s minivan and caused it to crash has settled her lawsuit for $7 million.
Fall at Work
$3.75 Million
An apprentice plumber fell through the floor of Trump Tower landing on the concrete below. He sustained injuries to his back, shoulder, and ankle. He was able to return to work following the accident.
Auto Accident
$3.5 Million
Settlement obtained for a 52-year old woman who suffered a broken leg after a car accident. According to the radiologist at the hospital, he reported a blood clot that was in danger of moving to her lungs, but her reporting doctors claimed they never received the report.
Head Injury
$3.5 Million
In 2012, Trapp & Geller settled a case against the general contractor and others in the amount of $3.5 million for negligence in allowing a support beam to fall, striking a laborer's head. The laborer suffered herniated discs in the neck.
Wrongful Death
$2.5 Million
A truck driver was standing on a roadway waiting for assistance after his truck broke down. A passing truck struck him resulting in his death.
Rear-End Collision
$2.3 Million
A 26- year old woman, while waiting in the drive-through line at a fast-food restaurant, was struck from behind injuring her shoulder. The injury developed into a rare nerve disorder called reflex sympathetic dystrophy or complex regional pain syndrome.

How Are Injury Victims Compensated in a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

A victim who has sustained an injury, damage to their property, or any other kind of material loss, may seek compensation from the person or entities that caused or contributed to those losses. This kind of compensation is called “damages.”

Damages may Include:

  • Medical Bills
  • Lost Wages
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Disability
  • Diminished quality of life and other hardships
  • Disfigurement
