Our record of successfully obtaining million dollar verdicts and settlements is further proof of our dedication and commitment to our number-one priority—our clients.
Columbia, MD (PRWEB) June 30, 2014
Through intense preparation and aggressive representation, the highly experienced attorneys and paralegals at Portner & Shure were able to obtain a $1 million settlement for their client.
The plaintiff, a 37-year-old man, was operating his motorcycle in Washington D.C. when a driver of a large commercial truck ran through a red traffic signal and proceeded in the intersection, colliding with him. As a result of this accident, the plaintiff was forced to endure serious, painful, and permanent injuries. According to medical reports, upon being ejected from his vehicle, his body was thrown onto the roadway, and he sustained a laceration to his left eye and a concussion, injury to his left shoulder, left knee and lower leg, and fractured both of his ankles and his right hand. Due to the severity of the injuries, he underwent multiple surgeries on his left ankle, and surgery to his left knee. The injury to his left ankle was catastrophic—he lost all of the medial malleolus in his ankle.
Jonathan Portner, a partner at Portner & Shure, and a member of the National Top 100 Trial Lawyers and Million Dollar Advocates Forum, and Christine Airey, a skilled paralegal with over a decade of experience, were able to strategically work the case and settle with the truck driver’s insurance company for $1 million, keeping it out of a lengthy litigation. This is a huge victory as it is very difficult to obtain a $1 million settlement, and less than 1% of attorneys are able to accomplish this their entire career.
Mr. Portner was available to make a statement: “Our record of successfully obtaining million dollar verdicts and settlements is further proof of our dedication and commitment to our number-one priority—our clients.”
