Successes

Lizel Cerezo obtained a defense verdict in the Superior Court of California for San Bernardino for a commercial trucking client.  The case involved a tractor-trailer vs. motor home rear-end collision on the I-15 Baker Grade. The three Plaintiffs sought damages for traumatic brain injuries, a permanent brachial plexus injury, and orthopedic injuries including the need for future back surgery. Plaintiffs issued statutory offers totaling $2 million. On behalf of our Client, Ms. Cerezo issued statutory offers for a total of $600,000. Plaintiffs rejected all efforts to resolve the case prior to the reading of the verdict. Both parties engaged multiple experts and the trial lasted three weeks. The jury ultimately returned three special verdicts in favor of our Client, determining that the accident was not a substantial factor in causing Plaintiffs’ harm. Defendants await entry of judgment in their favor and will seek their costs resulting from the defense of the complaint through trial.
