Cohn & Swartzon Gets Results

Mesothelioma / Asbestos Case | Court Judgment


After working with materials containing asbestos that the defendants knew caused terminal cancer but did nothing to correct, this gentleman was diagnosed with mesothelioma. After a long, agonizing and painful battle, he ultimately passed away from the cancer caused by his exposure to asbestos. This jury verdict included an award for punitive damages based upon the defendants’ conduct.

Bicycle Accident Case | Court Settlement


Our client was riding his bicycle when a truck’s mirror hit him and caused him to fall over the handlebars and down a ravine. Our client suffered loss of consciousness and brain injuries, as well as numerous painful fractures. The case was heavily litigated in court, but we eventually reached a settlement for the full policy limits very close to trial.

Pedestrian Case | Out of Court Settlement


Our client was on his lunch break, taking a leisurely walk when a vehicle driving in completely reckless manner struck him. Our client was propelled through the air, over the sidewalk, into a parking lot, where our client was knocked unconscious and then spent several days in the hospital. Unable to work for a period of time, the at-fault insurance party first asserted a coverage dispute and then argued about the extent of our client’s injuries. Ultimately, the matter resolved for all available policy limits.

Motorcycle Accident Case | Out of Court Settlement


Our client, a motorcyclist, was violently broadsided by an elderly driver. Our client suffered numerous injuries, which included multiple fractures of his right hand, wrist and scapula. The at-fault party’s insurance company originally argued comparative fault and offered a relatively minor settlement, stating they did not believe future surgery was necessary. Obviously, the defense’s claims held little merit.

Dog Bite Case | Court Settlement


Our client, a young girl, was viciously mauled by a family friend’s American Staffordshire Terrier as her mother and brother watched in horror. Our client suffered severe lacerations and post-traumatic stress. The at-fault party’s insurance company originally argued our client provoked the attack but later realized such an argument lacked merit. The case settled on the eve of trial.

Car Accident Case | Out of Court Settlement


An elderly couple was hit by a drunk driver that was ultimately sent to state prison. Both of our clients suffered serious injuries and were hospitalized for weeks. We successfully negotiated a settlement for the policy limits as well as a substantial reduction in our client’s medical bills allowing the clients to recover the significant settlement they deserved.

Dog Bite Case | Out of Court Settlement


Our client, a young woman, was viciously mauled by a family friend’s Great Dane while at a party. Our client suffered severe facial lacerations and post-traumatic stress. The case settled for the policy limits as the dog’s owner did not have any appreciable assets.

Car Accident | Out of Court Settlement


Shortly after the outset of the global pandemic, our client, who was a passenger in a friend’s vehicle, was injured when her friend lost control and the vehicle slammed into a light pole. Finding it extremely difficult to obtain medical care on her own, Cohn & Swartzon assisted our client in obtaining much needed medical care when, except for emergency care, was nearly nonexistent. The case resolved for all available policy limits and we were able to help our client get back on her feet again.

Wrongful Death

Confidential Settlement Amount

Our client’s late sister was out for a fun leisurely ride on her new bicycle near the side of the road. Tragically, she was struck by an inattentive driver who claimed the sun blinded his line of sight. The traffic collision report unbelievably placed our client’s late sister at fault and the auto insurance carriers involved then argued it was the bicyclist’s fault. However, with the assistance of an expert witness who is a former law enforcement accident reconstructionist, we found numerous, highly relevant errors with the traffic collision report. After battling the involved insurance carriers, the matter resolved for all available policy limits.

Wrongful Death | Court Judgment


Our client’s late husband (and a father of several young children) tragically lost his life in a horrific, multiple-car collision on a local freeway. The defendants included not only the adversary driver but the owner of a vehicle who failed to properly maintain the vehicle for safe use on the streets and highways. The family we represented will always remain in our hearts for the horrific loss they suffered.

Victim of Crime Case | Court Judgment


This was a truly heinous, despicable case. An elderly couple hired a carpet cleaning company to clean the carpets in their home. Several employees returned to the home in the middle of the night through an open window where they severely beat and robbed the elderly couple, nearly killing the wife and stealing over 1 million dollars in irreplaceable family artifacts and heirlooms. Fortunately, the defendants were apprehended, criminally convicted, and ultimately sent to prison.

Motorcycle Accident | Out of Court Settlement


Our client was on his motorcycle, on his way to work at a local theme park where he had been employed for many years. Without warning, a motorist exited a parking lot directly in our client’s path of travel. Unable to avoid the impending collision, our client’s motorcycle struck
the car and our client was catapulted through the air, landing on the vehicle and unforgiving asphalt. This horrific accident resulted in a settlement of all available insurance proceeds and was able to help compensate our client for the pain, emotional distress, and lost income he had to endure.

Skateboard Accident | Out of Court Settlement


A young woman decided to let her friend drive her vehicle, while our client was being pulled gently on a skateboard next to the vehicle. Without warning, the driver suddenly sped up,causing our client to lose control of her skateboard and fall under the vehicle where she was run over by a rear tire. Luckily, our client survived without life threatening injuries and despite the adversary insurance arguing it was our client’s fault, we resolved the matter out of court for nearly one million dollars.

Pedestrian Accident Case | Court Settlement


A family of three was hit by an elderly driver while lawfully standing on the sidewalk. Our clients suffered significant injuries and post-traumatic stress. The defendant’s attorneys vehemently argued there was no liability due to a sudden medical condition and a battle ensued. Eventually, after significant discovery, the asserted defense proved to lack merit. The case settled fairly close to trial.

Truck Accident Case | Out of Court Settlement


The driver of a large semi-truck and trailer fell asleep at the wheel while his co-driver was asleep in the truck’s berth. The semi-truck then veered to the left and hit a concrete freeway overpass which disintegrated the tractor and caused severe injuries to both individuals.

Car Accident Case | Court Judgment


Client was hit by an inattentive driver of a water truck, which caused her vehicle to overturn, and she lost partial use of her finger. Liability was disputed from the beginning, but Cohn & Swartzon prevailed.

Car Accident Case | Out of Court Settlement


Our client was entering an intersection when another party, traveling approximately 50 miles per hour, ran a red light. Both cars were destroyed and declared total losses. Our client suffered numerous herniated disks, which required surgery to help alleviate his pain.

Car Accident | Out of Court Settlement


Our client was driving between jobs when another driver, who was traveling much too fast on the freeway, lost control of his vehicle and caused a massive multi-party crash. Our client’s vehicle was damaged so severely that all four doors had to be removed by emergency personnel to extract him from his car. Luckily, our client did not suffer life threatening injuries but suffered painful broken ribs among other injuries that put him off of work for an extended period of time. Ultimately, we were able to resolve the matter for all available policy limits for our client.
