Heinrich Law’s client slipped and fell due to an extremely slick floor that had been negligently maintained. The incident caused the client severe lumbar spine and hip injuries. The client was in pain, faced significant medical expenses and was unable to work. The property owner and contractor denied liability and refused to settle.
Our investigation and case work up, which included the completion of over twenty five (25) lay and expert witness depositions, proved negligence stemming from the use of a cleaning product that was incorrectly applied to the floor.
We took the case to trial. After the first witness testified, the defendant made a $3.5 million settlement offer that our client agreed to accept.
A Sheriff barreled through a red light, crashing into our client’s car causing him to sustain a traumatic brain injury. For two years, the Sheriff’s department blamed our client. A trial was scheduled. We knew we needed incontrovertible proof that the Sheriff was at fault and our client’s injury was severe.
Through our dogged investigation, use of experts and advanced technology, we proved our case.
We shifted the Sheriff’s position from blaming our client for the accident and refusing to settle, to offering a $3 million dollar settlement the week prior to trial.
Our client was seriously injured when a drunk driver struck her at high speed in a parking lot in downtown Los Angeles, CA. Heinrich Law’s expert understanding of insurance ensured that Ms. Jain received just compensation, even though the at fault driver had inadequate insurance and no appreciable assets. In this case, our work focused on identifying an insurance policy held by our client’s parents, and, proving to the insurance company why the must settle the claim.
With thorough research, and understanding of insurance coverage law, aggressive advocacy, appropriate use of experts, and advanced technology, Heinrich Law obtained $ 1,000,000 of compensation for this deserving client.
Our client was seriously injured when a rideshare driver drove over her leg as she was walking through a marked crosswalk in a congested part of downtown San Francisco. Initially, the driver reported to the police that our client jumped out in front of his car. However, using witness statements as well as video captured by private security cameras, we were able to definitively prove he was lying.
By casting a wide net for all available evidence, Heinrich Law secured a $1,000,000 pre-litigation settlement for this client.
Our client was viciously bitten in the face by a rescue dog after being invited into an acquaintance’s home. The dog’s owners accepted responsibility, but their homeowner’s insurance company initially refused to fully compensate Ms. Kelly for her injuries and damages. Heinrich Law was forced to file a lawsuit after which we worked with an experienced plastic surgeon who examined our client, reviewed her entire medical file, and then rendered opinions regarding the severity of Ms. Kelly’s injuries and residual scarring.
The matter eventually went to mediation where Heinrich Law negotiated a settlement for $875,000, one of the largest settlements on record in California for a dog bite to the face.
Our client, John Robinson, was seriously injured due to an unsafe lane change made by a United States Coast Guard employee. The investigating police officers blamed the entire incident on Mr. Robinson. Heinrich Law’s careful analysis of the physical evidence and skillful cross examination of eyewitnesses, and the Coast Guard employee herself, clearly proved the Coast Guard driver was at fault.
Heinrich Law settled the case for $750,000 shortly before trial.
