  • MS v ABC Engineering
    MS worked at a local car dealership as a mechanic. One of his duties was performing front end alignments, and to do so vehicles were raised in the air with pneumatic jacks. One of the jacks had been malfunctioning, and a repair call had been placed to ABC. Unfortunately, ABC never sent anyone to repair the jack, and it again malfunctioned, this time with a car in the air. MS tried to lower the car manually, but the car dropped a foot faster than expected, and he did not get out of the way quickly enough , and the car hit him on the head. He suffered injuries to a disc in his neck, which needed surgical correction. ABC denied blame and hired attorneys and experts from out of state to fight the case, arguing that MS caused the jack to fail. Attorney Futchko was able to convince ABC that it was also responsible for failing to maintain the jack and promptly repair it after the service call was made by the dealer, and the case settled before trial for a six figure amount.
  • Estate of JW v XYZ Insurance
    JW was a teenage female passenger in a motor vehicle. The operator was travelling in a construction zone and lost control, veering over the center line, striking an oncoming car. Tragically, JW died in the accident, as did two other people. One of the insurance companies paid its policy limits on behalf of their driver. Another insurance company did not pay on the claim, having paid out the full amount of its policy to the other two Estates. A suit was filed against the companies involved in the road construction for failing to provide proper barriers and signage regarding a reduced speed in the construction zone, and also as to the driver whose insurance company failed to pay our client's Estate. The claim settled for a significant amount, with most of the dollars coming from the insurance company who failed to originally pay the Estate. XYZ Insurance paid a sum well in excess of the policy limits.
