$1,000,000 Settlement in Mendocino County Case

Janssen Malloy LLP recently resolved a case for a Eureka resident for the defendant’s million dollar policy limit arising out of a head on collision that occurred in Southern Mendocino County last year. Janssen Malloy LLP’s client was a passenger in a Jeep Cherokee that was struck by a truck that crossed the median directly into their path, causing a head on collision.  Plaintiff sustained serious injuries, and required two hip surgeries.

The case was filed in Mendocino County Superior Court, and resolved shortly after the deposition testimony of the investigating CHP officer.  Prior to that deposition, the defendant’s insurance carrier had offered to settle the case for $15,000.

This case result demonstrates why it is critical for a seriously injured motorist or passenger to be represented by competent and experienced trial counsel. With the assistance of skilled trial counsel, the plaintiff can “even the playing field,” have a fair chance to receive reasonable compensation and justice, and hold the responsible parties accountable.
