Callahan & Blaine earned a record-setting $50 million settlement for two injured pedestrians who were hit by a car on the Pacific Coast Highway in Orange County. This is the highest personal injury settlement in the history of the United States.* While not every pedestrian accident case requires this amount of compensation, catastrophic and fatal injuries are not uncommon. You want a law firm that can obtain full and fair damages for your losses.
Pedestrian injuries can be the result of an accident involving a car, truck, other commercial vehicle or bus. In addition to the driver of the vehicle, there may be liable parties such as a road construction company, the manufacturer of defective vehicle components, an establishment that overserved a drunk driver or the municipality in charge of maintaining the safety of the road. The lawyers at Callahan & Blaine are particularly adept at investigating accidents and determining all liable parties. We go beyond the obvious answers and continue seeking sources of compensation for our clients.
Many people are unaware of the long-term effects of catastrophic injuries. Unfortunately, insurance companies take advantage of this and grossly undervalue pedestrian accident cases. At Callahan & Blaine, our attorneys understand insurance company tactics and develop case strategies to counteract them. Attorney Edward Susolik, the chair of the firm’s Insurance Law Department, has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for policyholders during his career. With his expertise, the firm excels at valuing cases and fighting insurance companies.
We maximize the value of injury and wrongful death cases, working with medical experts, economists, life-care planners, and other experts to ensure that all of your past, current and future needs will be met. Because we understand the need for families to recover sufficient compensation, we keep litigating until we get results.
