Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome. Each case is different and case results referred to in this website are not intended to be, nor should they be understood as, a representation that equivalent results will be achieved in any given case.

$500,000 Settlement for a Man Injured in a Motorcycle v. Automobile Accident

$50,000 Arbitration Award for Construction Worker Who Was the Victim of a Hit and Run

Road construction worker who was “flagging” traffic was hit by an automobile who failed to stop in response to his traffic control sign. The insurance company refused to offer more than $17,000 to settle the case prior to suit arguing that the Plaintiff jumped in the way of the moving vehicle. Shaheen & Gordon Attorney Alex Spadinger successfully represented the Plaintiff at an arbitration hearing where the arbitration panel awarded the Plaintiff $50,000; nearly three times the insurance company’s pre-suit offer of settlement.
