Wrongful Death Car Accident in San Fernando Valley
(Yijing Chen v. Nicole Hershel)
Yijing Chen v. Nicole Hershel
$18 Million Verdict for Young Woman who Lost her Mother
Yijing Chen was crossing the roadway on a green light, while holding the hands of her mother Hong Fen Shen. Nicole Hershel, who was driving a pickup truck, did not see the pedestrians and ran over them. As a result Yijing fractured her leg, and Hong Fen died as a result of her injuries. There were no witnesses to the accident, so Nicole Hershel began to stage the scene to make it look like she was just an innocent bystander. She moved her truck, moved the unconscious Hong Fen, and told the investigating officers that she was just driving by when she saw the two women in distress in the street.
Other attorneys had gave up on the case, but ElDabe Ritter did not quit. Through litigation they were able to prove that Hershel caused the collision. At trial, ElDabe Ritter was able to prove that she maliciously staged the scene which caused additional emotional distress to Yijing. The jury agreed, and awarded $18,000,000 in damages.

However, during trial it was proved that he was responsible for the collision.

(Hahan v. Chuang)
Hahan v. Chuang
Driver Roche Hahan and his passenger Marielisa Villasenor were struck by the defendant and thrown off their scooter by the impact. They both suffered a multitude of injuries and underwent various surgeries.
Defense claimed future medical bills were inflated and that the injuries were not as serious as claimed. ElDabe Ritter attorneys fought back hard using noneconomic damages such as emotional distress as a compelling reason for a higher verdict. The original policy limits were only $500,000, however Eldabe Ritter attorneys managed to open the policy limits, and attain a verdict of 3.6 million.

(Lyle v. Goontilike)

$2.45 Million Settlement for Motorcyclist Wrongful Death with $15,000 Policy Limit
Mark Lyle was traveling on his motorcycle when the defendant’s vehicle collided with him, thereby resulting in the premature death of a beloved husband and father.
Initially, it appeared that the family would only recover the $15,000 policy limits of the driver. Instead of accepting a quick settlement. ElDabe Ritter filed a lawsuit and dug and dug, until they found out that the driver was in the course and scope of her employment at the time of the incident. Even though the connection between the driver and her employer were not completely clear because she had not started working yet. However, ElDabe Ritter was able to prove to the court that there was a sufficient nexus to her driving and the accident to allow a settlement of $2.45M to be reached.
