QUADRIPLEGIC FRANCHISE OWNER FACES A REDUCED WORK LIFE EXPECTANCY


NATURE OF CASE:

Personal injury litigation resulting from a motor vehicle accident.

OUTCOME:
Bench trial. $21.6 million awarded by Hon. Robert H. O’Brien.

ATTORNEY:
Garo Mardirossian, and Armen Akaragian of Mardirossian & Associates, Inc., and
Stanley Jacobs of Jacobs Jacobs & Eisfelder, represented the plaintiff.

ATTORNEY COMMENT:
“Richard comes to court fully prepared to provide the necessary reliable evidence in an easy to understand fashion, using charts and graphs masterfully. He marshals the facts of the case in anticipation of cross examination, which becomes a practice in futility for those who try to lock horns with him.

This is the only case against Land Rover finding the Discovery I SUV to be defective in design. Similar cases have been tried against Land Rover with adverse results. The court found the vehicle to be defective due to its unreasonable propensity to roll over, plus its weak structural support for caving in during a foreseeable roll over, and its failure to warn of these deficiencies.

These are expensive trials that require expensive automotive testing, and a stable of highly qualified experts. We asked for 100% loss of earning capacity Richard testified to, and received every penny of it.”
