Case Conclusion Date:January 1, 2000
Practice Area:Personal Injury
Description:In 2000, Oceanside personal injury lawyer Russell Kohn recovered $1,000,000 for a 50-year-old man seriously injured in a rear-end auto collision. As a result of the accident, the man suffered extensive neck and back injuries and required surgery. He continued to suffer severe pain, mild cognitive impairment, depression, and insomnia which led to two suicide attempts. The defendant claimed that another automobile pulled abruptly from the curb into his path, causing him to swerve and collide with the plaintiff's vehicle. The defendant also argued that the severity of the plaintiff's injuries was not consistent with the minimal damage the plaintiff's vehicle sustained.
