$2.8 Million Settlement in Bus Accident Injury Case
Zehl & Associates is happy to announce the recovery of a $2.8 million settlement on behalf of our client who suffered a fractured leg in a bus accident.
During the driver’s deposition, he admitted to using his phone 15 times in the 30 minutes prior to losing control of the bus.
As a result, the bus company came to mediation with a strong top offer of $1.5 million.
Still not enough to cover the client’s future needs, we refused the offer and pressed on toward trial.
Just one week before we were set to begin, the bus company came forward with a new offer of $2.8 million and the client happily accepted.
Attorney’s fees: $924,000
Case expenses: $144,742
