LAS VEGAS JURY AWARDS OVER $30 MILLION TO VICTIMS
IN SINGLE ROLLOVER MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT

The plaintiffs, who consisted of 3 adults and six minors, rented a Ford Econoline 350 15 passenger van to travel to Missouri to see a boxing event, which was sanctioned by the United States Olympic Committee. On August 14, 2006, while Ernesto Torres was operating the van, the left rear Goodyear tire blew out, resulting in the van going off the road surface and rolling over.

Ervetina Trujillo Tapia, a 65-year-old grandmother, and Frank Enriquez, a single father with 3 children, were pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. Andres Torres died in the hospital shortly after the accident. Joseph Enriquez suffered profound brain injuries. He is unable to communicate and is permanently totally disabled.

Mr. Johnson was retained to calculate the compensatory damages for plaintiffs and was asked to give his expert opinion as to the general damages (intangible value of life and the loss of enjoyment of life) of the case. read more...


ECONOMIST QUANTIFIES AND LIFE ACTIVITY CALENDAR SUPPORTS UNEMPLOYED AMPUTEE'S DAMAGES

Mrs. Lusik Pogosyan, a 45-year old mother, was getting into her car when she was struck by a vehicle involved in a police pursuit. The plaintiff suffered a left leg amputation through the knee, a degloving of the right leg and crushing injuries to her pelvis and other areas.

The life care plan estimated that Mrs. Pogosyan's future medical expenses would be approximately $2,400,000. However, her profound injuries prevented her from ever entering the labor force and drastically reduced her quality of life. Damages were difficult because the plaintiff was both unemployed and was taking ‘English as a Second Language’ to qualify for a job. read more...

Attorney’s Comments Regarding Mr. Mills’ punitive damages testimony at trial: "Mr. Mills helped the jury to understand the true financial condition of the defendant. Although the defendant has not operated for decades, Mr. Mills was able to examine historical documents, including old news releases, and explain to the jury in clear and understandable terms how that information revealed the defendant’s actual financial condition. Mr. Mills was able to take tax return information received during trial and convey that data to the jury in a way that supported his opinions and assisted them in their task.”
