Woodland Hills, CA (Law Firm Newswire) December 14, 2012 - Woodland Hills personal injury attorneys Freeman & Freeman LLP are proud to announce that a record jury award of $4.89 million was obtained on behalf of their client Lisa Tonetti against defendants Diversified Transportation LLC and Ernesto Salgado. This staggering sum is one of the highest amounts awarded in Norwalk, CA in over 15 years. The record $4.89 million jury award was the result of a lawsuit filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court in Norwalk, CA, case number VC056699.
“We are extremely pleased to see that our client’s case was finally resolved and that such a large award was made on behalf of our client. This jury award will provide the care, therapy, and assistance our client desperately needs following such a traumatic accident,” said attorney Stan Freeman. “Ms. Tonetti wants to piece her life back together and with the assistance that this award will provide, she will be closer to accomplishing this goal.”
According to the lawsuit, Lisa Tonetti was riding her motorscooter southbound on Atlantic Avenue on her way to work one morning when the driver of a 16 passenger van allegedly pulled out into traffic recklessly, crossing multiple lanes of traffic and causing Ms. Tonetti to collide with the van. Ms. Tonetti was thrown from her motorscooter into traffic, losing consciousness.
Hospital records submitted to support the case show that Ms. Tonetti’s accident caused severe injuries, including a collapsed lung, broken right collarbone, multiple broken ribs, fractured left toe, fractured right knee, and multiple compression fractures to the spine.
Woodland Hills personal injury attorneys Freeman & Freeman LLP were retained to obtain justice for their client, Ms. Tonetti. Just prior to trial, defense made their highest offer of $400,000. This offer was declined, the case went to trial and the jury awarded over ten times that amount. To obtain this record award, the law firm assembled a team of top experts and investigators to build the case and prepare for trial.
Said attorney Stan Freeman, “Our team of talented personal injury attorneys and staff work hard for our clients from the first day we take the case. We were pleased to obtain such a favorable outcome for our client.”
