Below are just a few examples of lawsuits against Farmers Insurance we successfully resolved on behalf of our clients since 2003.
GJEL Accident attorney Andy Gillin represented a 70-year old man injured in a car accident while driving in eastern Alameda County. After being taken to Stanford Hospital with major internal injuries, he made a full recovery of his physical injuries. There was some question, however, as to whether or not the accident had “knocked him into old age” in terms of his vitality, mental functioning, and ongoing fears. Farmers ultimately paid $1,500,000 to settle the case.
In this case, GJEL represented a 22 year-old woman with severe back injuries from a car accident in a vehicle operated by her boyfriend. With police reports, medical evidence, and depositions GJEL showed that the plaintiff did not know about the driver’s intoxication at the time of the accident. GJEL proved that the three back surgeries which plaintiff had following the accident were the result of the collision, rather than any of her pre-existing injuries from her career as a teen skater. The plaintiff recovered in excess of $1.5 million from both State Farm and Farmers.
GJEL helped a chiropractor with severe neck and wrist injuries recover $575,000 following a rear end car accident on Highway 80, on the way to Lake Tahoe. The claimant in this case was insured by Farmers. GJEL Accident Attorneys worked with both of the surgeons who operated on the plaintiff to provide detailed testimony regarding the extent of the injuries, the need for treatment, and the causal relationship between the rear end accident and the need for those surgeries.
GJEL Accident Attorneys recovered $270,000 in a claim involving serious burn injuries to a 23 year-old man. The young man suffered burns to his torso, arms and neck when friends at a barbecue threw denatured alcohol directly onto an open flame. By using a consulting psychologist and also arranging and assisting with a face-to-face meeting between the young man and a Farmers representing, GJEL Accident Attorneys helped communicate the devastating emotional and physical impact of the burn injuries.
In this case from 2003, GJEL attorney Jim Larsen represented the victim of a dog bite in Manteca. Jim Larsen recovered $100,000 for our client in this insurance settlement with Farmers.
GJEL attorneys represented the victim of this auto vs. motorcycle accident that occurred on Mines Road in Pleasanton, California. The accident caused our client to suffer head injuries, broken shoulder, and broken ankle. Although the defendants claimed that our client was speeding, GJEL attorneys used expert testimony to negate this claim. Farmers Insurance paid our client $100,000 to settle his claim.
This was a two-vehicle accident that took place in rural California. Our client suffered from back pain and dental injuries. Her insurance company was Mercury and the company for the other person was Farmers. We were able to settle this case without litigation in the amount of $100,000.
