Ontario, Calif. — Managing Partner, Samer Habbas of the Law Offices of Samer Habbas & Associates secured a $690,000 for a truck accident victim. The plaintiff was traveling through surface streets when an 18-wheeler initiated a left-hand turn into a gas station. The plaintiff was unable to stop in time and collided into the trailer. As a result of the impact, he sustained facial fractures/injuries and psychological injuries consisting of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
This was a highly contentious matter, in which the defense vigorously argued that our client was speeding and braked late due to inattentiveness. For that reason, the insurance company refused to accept any responsibility for the injuries sustained by the plaintiff.
Habbas immediately filed a lawsuit and engaged in an aggressive litigation strategy, which included the depositions of several people associated with the trucking company, police officers, witnesses, and medical doctors. Furthermore, several experts were retained to investigate the collision and its injuries to the fullest extent. Despite the alleged comparative fault that our client that would have likely been confirmed by a jury, we were able to convince the defense at mediation to settle this matter at $690,000.
