Case Conclusion Date: 04.29.2009
Practice Area: Personal Injury
Outcome: $150,000.00 Settlement in pre-trial Mediation
Description: Attorney Mark C. Blane represented an injured worker against a third party when the worker fell from the height of approximately fifteen (15) feet from a forklift. The worker suffered a broken leg, shoulder, and jaw. The case was denied by the insurance so Mr. Blane filed a lawsuit in Chula Vista Superior Court against the third party, and achieved a $150,000.00 settlement just short of trial. Mr. Blane also negotiated a considerable lowering of the medical expenses that were covered under workers’ compensation due to the dispute in liability.
