    Jan 01, 1999
    Outcome:
    $3,347,000.00- A young man who sustained serious
    Description:
    $3,347,000.00- A young man who sustained serious injuries and head trauma Our young client was involved in a head-on collision. Two trucks had been racing and struck our client's vehicle. The two responsible drivers were inadequately insured and our client's own insurance company refused to pay his $30,000.00 underinsured motorist coverage limits. We demanded arbitration with the insurance company and ultimately received an arbitration award of $865,000.00. We then filed a first party bad faith lawsuit against our client's own insurance company and during a mediation prior to trial, settled the bad faith case for an additional $2,500,000.00. The same insurance company which refused to pay our client $30,000.00 eventually paid a total of $3,347,000.00. Of note is the fact that this settlement was obtained only after our client's own insurance company originally denied paying the small $30,000.00 claim.

    Practice Area:
    Contracts and agreements
    Date:
    Nov 11, 1997
    Outcome:
    $20,000,000 Defense
    Description:
    $20,000,000 Defense- Client was sued for more $20,000,000.00 We were asked to defend a family business which was being sued for more than $20,000,000.00 for an alleged improper use of software . There was only $1,000,000.00 in liability insurance coverage and so if we lost this case, our clients' would loose everything. Because of the plaintiff's wrongful conduct, we filed a cross-complaint alleging similar damages against the plaintiff and also obtained an immediate injunction shutting down the plaintiff's business, marketing and sales. Our aggressive defense resulted in the case ultimately settling for a nuisance value and resulting in very happy clients.
  • $1,250,000.00- Jet ski rider dies in head on watercraft crash

    Practice Area:
    Wrongful death
    Date:
    Jun 01, 1994
    Outcome:
    $1,250,000.00- Jet ski rider dies in head on water
    Description:
    $1,250,000.00- Jet ski rider dies in head on watercraft crash A 16 year old expert watercraft rider was struck by another adult jet ski operator at Lake Havasu, Arizona. We were retained by his parents when the original accident report indicated that the minor was at fault and had alcohol in his system. We were surprised with the findings in the official repot because we knew of at least two witnesses who observed the other rider cause the accident and, the minor did not drink alcohol or use drugs. Our investigation then established that the blood test results in our accident report were from another case and had nothing to do with our accident. Despite this fact, the defendant only offered $1.00 to settle the case (an insult to our family) and we were forced to take the case to trial in Federal court. After about a one week trial, a jury came back with a gross verdict for our clients in the amount of $1,250,000.00. As a result of this verdict, Mr. Jackson was profiled in a full-page article in the California Daily Journal for his work and verdict relating to this case.

    Description:
    $1,000,000- Parents of Three Children Tragically Killed in Accident This week we decided to feature several of our verdicts and settlements. Our involvement in these cases made a big difference in their outcome and we would like to think that we can help you to... We were retained to represent three young children who had lost both of their parents in an automobile accident. The van they were in spun out of control and was hit by a large truck. The trucking company and its insurance company originally denied responsibility for the loss. After we became involved, filed a Superior Court lawsuit and pushed the case to trial, we were eventually able to settle the case for $1,000,000.00 shortly before trial. The settlement funds were placed in to annuities providing the children with a substantial monthly income for the next 20-30 years. Food, shelter, clothing and a good education are now available to our three young clients. Of note is the fact that this settlement was obtained after the other side originally denied the claim.

We rejected the offer, filed a lawsuit and litigated the case. During the discovery process, we discovered that the other side had additional insurance coverage of $1,000,000.00 which was never disclosed to us during the original settlement discussions. After multiple pre-trial settlement conferences, we were able to settle the case for $1,000,000.00.

    Description:
    Excessive Use of Force by Moreno Valley Police Department Leads to $5,500,000 Wrongful Death Verdict Against Riverside County 6 Years ago a Moreno Valley family called 911 to help get their son to the hospital. Rather than helping, police officers instead physically assaulted the victim resulting in his death 15 minutes later. Riverside, CA, April 29, 2009: Late Tuesday afternoon, a Riverside Superior Court jury found that Sheriff Deputies employed by the County of Riverside used excessive force against a Moreno Valley family resulting in death. After a two week trial and several days of deliberations, a jury of 4 women and 8 men rendered a gross verdict in favor of the decedent’s two young children and family totaling $5.5M. “This was a tragic, unnecessary and completely avoidable death. It should have never happened” according to Mitch Jackson of Jackson & Wilson, Inc., the Lewis family trial attorney. “This family reached out and called for help. Instead of getting the help they needed, they instead were forced to experience the worst nightmare of their lives". The net verdict was $1.6M for each child and $750K for each parent.
