Car Crash Accident

Ms. Risling was working as a specialty finishing painter when she was rendered partially disabiled in a car accident.

The other driver, who was found negligent, turned in front of Ms. Risling’s vehicle, causing the collision.

The judgment took into account loss of future earnings and other expenses, including health care costs and getting help around the house.

She was also reimbursed for out-of-pocket expenses, compensated for pain and suffering, and won general damages for loss of enjoyment of life.

Ms. Risling’s legal team, Alan Truong and Krista Simon, tried to settle her case to avoid going to trial. Since the trial award was higher than the pre-trial formal offer to settle, her lawyers returned before the trial judge to seek double costs, which they won.
