Welcome to the 2017 Year in Review of Casper, Meadows, Schwartz & Cook and our Walnut Creek personal injury attorneys. We had an incredible year thanks to the dedication, know-how, and client-focused approach our team of attorneys and legal professionals use for every case we take. Please join us in a quick review of our 2017 highlights.
Attorneys Nick Casper and Adam Carlson became new managing partners at our law firm. We were so excited for this opportunity to further grow and advance our firm, which had already been regarded as a leader in personal injury litigation in California. The experience of both Casper and Carlson is immense, and they have already proven to be invaluable assets to our firm as partners. Check out a previous blog post here for more information about this development.
We secured a fantastic $5.6 million verdict for our client who was hurt in an elevator accident. She was riding in the elevator when it unexpectedly plummeted twice, causing significant back injuries that left her permanently disabled and unable to work for the rest of her life. Shockingly, it was discovered that the elevator clutch had been kept together by common zip-ties, which failed and caused the accident. You can learn more about this great case success by either visiting a previous blog post here or by looking at the full article from the SF Gate.
Other outstanding results in 2017 for the team at Casper, Meadows, Schwartz & Cook include: $6 million in a fatal pedestrian accident case; $4.1 million in a death at a construction site; $1.375 in a medical malpractice case; and $1.25 million in a catastrophic injury pedestrian case.
An 11-year-old fifth grader had duct tape placed over his mouth while attending Los Perales Elementary School. This act of humiliating child abuse did not happen just once, but twice. The teacher of the student allegedly told all the children to never talk about the incident. We are proud of the student for speaking out and letting this injustice be known to his parents. Our Walnut Creek injury attorneys will fight adamantly on behalf of this family for fair compensation for this truly unacceptable behavior. More information about this ongoing case can be found here.
Casper, Meadows, Schwartz & Cook is proud of all our achievements and successes of 2017, but we know we have much more work to do for the people of Walnut Creek and the surrounding areas. We anticipate a busy yet victorious 2018 as well for our attorneys.
