Attorneys Breen & Lavorato Secure One of California's Top 100 Settlements for 2019
Attorney Sean Breen and Attorney Chris Lavorato of Howry, Breen & Herman, LLP in Austin, Texas worked with Lavorato’s prior partner from California, Ara Jabagchourian in a complex motorcycle accident case last year. Not only did this case end victoriously for the client, but it also included a settlement that placed in California’s Top 100 Settlements for 2019, as tracked by The Recorder and VerdictSearch. Ultimately, the case settled for the full policy limits of $1,250,000, with $744,785.54 being awarded to the client after costs of $5,214.47 and attorney fees of $500,000.
The client was struck by a motorist while traveling along the Pacific Coast Highway in Sunset Beach, California. He suffered multiple serious injuries, including a broken leg, wrist, nose, and fractured vertebrae at C7. The extent of his injuries made permanent disability or debilitation extremely likely.
Both economic and non-economic losses were sought through the injury claim. The hotly contested liability in this case made it a challenge from the beginning, with the defendant trying to blame the motorcyclist for the crash however they could. While aggressively prosecuting the case in discovery, the $1,250,000 settlement was reached, benefitting all parties by avoiding protracted litigation.
Congratulations to all counselors who worked on this case and helped secure such a tremendous outcome. We also want to send sincere thanks to Attorney Jabagchourian for all the amazing work on this case. Our team could not have done it without you!
