We are pleased to announce that our firm obtained a $7 million dollar settlement of a construction defect action. Our clients are 31 individual homeowners in a luxury development in Riverside County. The homeowners alleged that their homes suffered from construction defects, including extensive and significant stucco cracking, improper roof installation, improper window installation, failing retaining and site walls and miscellaneous additional defects throughout the homes. The parties used a modified SB800 pre-litigation procedure and multiple sessions of mediation to reach the settlement after close to two years of extensive inspections, testing and expert battles. Our clients will now be able to repair their homes and enjoy their community for years to come.
We are pleased to announce that our firm obtained a $5.75 million dollar settlement for a newlywed couple against a closed-street bicycle and pedestrian event organizer. Our client was involved in a bicycle v. bicycle collision that was caused by the negligence of the event organizers. She suffered a moderate traumatic brain injury with partial facial paralysis. Her husband, who was first to render aid, made a loss of consortium claim. This settlement, which was obtained after an almost four-year battle, validates our clients’ claims that this could have been easily prevented and sends a message to the organizers to do better because our community deserves better.
ACTS Law attorneys Boris Treyzon and Sara A. McClain recently obtained a $5.9 million jury verdict, including $5 million for punitive damages, on behalf of our clients. A tree fell across our clients’ pool and house, causing significant property damage to their home. The insurance company’s last offer at mediation, days before trial, was $30,000.
Our attorneys, Boris Treyzon and Anna Lisa Knafo, obtained a jury verdict of $8.2 million for our client, Jorge Guzman, Jr. Mr. Guzman suffered a traumatic brain injury after he was hit by a passing vehicle while working as a food truck driver in 2014.
Avalon Foods, Inc., owned by Mr. Edward Younan, operated the truck our client was driving and working in. Mr. Younan and Avalon Foods, Inc., the defendants, argued that Mr. Guzman was not an employee of the company and therefore were not liable for his injuries due to the accident.
The complexities of the case, combined with COVID-19-related court delays, meant the litigation process took longer to come to a resolution than usual. However, our lawyers were able to obtain an outcome for our client that will compensate him for the loss he and his family suffered as a result of the 2014 incident.
