Rick Eddington helped represent a client that suffered severe injuries when she was rear-ended by a tractor-trailer during a snowstorm on I-25 south of Denver. Her treating orthopedic surgeon opined that she would need multiple orthopedic surgeries for her injuries from the semi-truck collision, which would cost several million dollars. The case settled several weeks after mediation for a confidential amount of money.
Jury verdict for $2,215,000 (over $2.9M with interest and costs), which settled for a confidential amount of money prior to entry of a final judgment
Rick Eddington helped obtain a $2,215,000 personal injury jury verdict for a school teacher that was rear-ended on I-70 by a semi-truck. She suffered a spinal injury that required pain management to her neck and back, as well as a mild traumatic brain injury that kept her out of work for a semester.
Plaintiff walked out of mediation when the Defendant didn’t think the case had a value in excess of $500,000. The Defendant offered $600,000 months prior to trial. Finally, after the first week of trial, the Defendant offered $1,000,000.
Settled a personal injury claim for $6,250,000 with the retailer and another confidential amount from the manufacturer of a defective product.
Rick Eddington helped represent a 74-year old Vietnam veteran who suffered third-degree burns to 14% of his body when his friend was refilling a decorative fire pot with liquid fuel gel. The fuel burned so clear that it looked like the flame was out when it wasn’t, and caused the flame to get into the fuel gel bottle and ignite. When it ignited, it shot burning fuel gel (much like napalm) onto the Rick’s client. The fuel gel manufacturer settled first for a confidential amount of money, and the retailer later paid $6,250,000 to settle the claim.
