$6 Million Policy Limits Settlement for a Severely Brain Damaged Client

In less than 9 months, Justin Shapiro secured the maximum recovery for his client while she fought for her life. In October 2019, after a short break out of the office, our client began walking back to her office building. She had the right of way and was proceeding through the marked crosswalk.

At that time, a pickup truck driver suddenly and illegally turned left while our client was in the middle of the crosswalk. The driver struck her and and ran her down with the steel bars installed on the front end of his truck. Our client sustained horrific injuries including a series of skull fractures and brain hemorrhages. She was rendered completely unconscious on impact. If that was not enough, it did not stop the defendant from stopping his truck and he drove over her left leg and body.

Despite claims that our client was at fault, Justin Shapiro's investigation proved that the defendant's liability was clear and absolute. The defendant ignored traffic signage that was plainly observable in broad daylight. Not only did he fail to observe the road sign, he failed to observe our pedestrian client walking in the middle of the marked crosswalk. As a result, Justin Shapiro swiftly and thoroughly secured a $6 million settlement for the plaintiff, the maximum recoverable amount for his client's future.

I have known Ira for several decades and without a doubt he represents the best of the profession- a never ending commitment to his clients and a perpetual desire for learning and sharing his expertise with his colleagues. Richard
I found, and still find, that Ira’s firm will evaluate the case fairly and provide the client with a reasonably expectation of the process involved and will avoid giving false hope where there is none. Also Ira’s firm consistently keeps in constant touch with the client as well as referring attorneys so each knows the progress of a case. Finally I can tell you that if I personally were injured, Ira Leesfield is the first person I would call. Michael Browning
