Warshafsky Holds Insurance Companies Financially Responsible
Record-setting Settlement for Boy Injured in Auto Accident
11-year-old Todd Leaverton was riding in a car driven by his 17-year-old sister Linda. As they were heading down Highway 60 near Hartford, the car crossed the center line and hit an oncoming car head on. In an instant, Todd’s life was forever changed.
Initially paralyzed on his entire left side, Todd lay unconscious for seven weeks in the hospital and remained there for nearly 4 months. He suffered permanent brain damage, functional use of his left arm, a loss of visual acuity and some hearing loss, as well. Due to the severity of his injuries, he was confined to a wheelchair most of his waking hours. The learning difficulties brought on by the injuries made enrollment in a sheltered workshop his only hope for future employment.
The experienced attorneys of Warshafsky Law took the tragic turn of events in this young man’s life personally and worked hard to find a way to provide for his future care needs, as well as the immediate needs of his mother to quit working in order to care for him. Our reputation for preparing every case as if it will go to trial led the insurance companies named in the suit to seek an out of court settlement. While many law firms are quick to settle with insurance companies and have little clout in settlement negotiations, the personal injury attorneys of Warshafsky Law routinely secure the highest settlements possible for our clients — in many cases, record setting settlements.
Car Accident Lawyers Come Through For Boy and His Mother
Todd Leaverton’s case was one of those record-setting settlements. Warshafsky Law Firm secured a $4.9 million settlement for Todd. Although this may seem reasonable by today’s standards, this happened over 35 years ago. To give you some idea of the enormity of this vehicle injury settlement, the inflation-adjusted value of $4.9 million would be over $19 million in 2014. Another Society Changing Judgment was formed. The case sent shockwaves throughout the insurance industry, furthering the reputation of Warshafsky Law as a force to be reckoned with in any personal injury lawsuit and raising the bar on the notion of “reasonable compensation” for life-changing injuries.
