    Our Firm Has a Reputation for Trying Cases

Personal Injury Attorneys

Success That Speaks for Itself

While cumulative amount recovered can be impressive, it is just as important to look at the time it took a firm to accomplish such feats. For instance, a personal injury law firm may boast that they have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars, but they may fail to add that it took them 50 years to do so. At Arnold & Itkin, we've already tried—and won—more cases than most trial lawyers do in their entire careers.

At our firm, we have recovered billions of dollars. That's not all though. In fact, in the last few years, we have also been able to win more than 30 verdicts in excess of $1 million. That is the kind of hard evidence that simply speaks for itself.

The Arnold & Itkin Experience

We Represented Nearly 1/3 of the Deepwater Horizon Crew

In 2010, tragedy struck when an explosion occurred on the Deepwater Horizon.

The accident killed 11 individuals, injured countless others, and resulted in one of the largest accidental marine oil spills in recordable history. In the aftermath, nearly 1/3 of the crew turned to us for help. In fact, more crew members chose to work with us than any other firm in the country. We were proud to stand up and fight for their rights.

    Testimonials from Our Deepwater Horizon Clients

$117 Million Settlement

We Won the Largest Single-Plaintiff Personal Injury Verdict in LA History

We went to work for the victims of a catastrophic ambulance accident in 2012. In this case, we helped a pregnant woman who called an ambulance after experiencing severe stomach pain in December of 2010. While being transported to the hospital, the driver of the ambulance dropped his RSI device onto the floor, which led to him leaning down to locate it without slowing down—completely taking his eyes off the road. The ambulance was driven right into the back of a sugar cane truck on the road.

Our client suffered a serious brain and spine injury, which left no potential chance of recovery; she was expected to be in a wheelchair for her lifetime. After deliberating for less than four hours, the jury returned with a verdict of $117 million. This was the largest single personal injury verdict in LA history and listed as the 25th largest verdict in The National Law Journal's Top 100 Verdicts of 2012.

Headline-Making Risperdal Verdict

$76.6 Million Won on Behalf of a Young Boy Harmed by Risperdal Usage

In 2016, we represented a young man harmed from taking Risperdal, a now-infamous antipsychotic. The medication, which is manufactured by global giant Johnson & Johnson, was only approved for use by adults when our client began taking it as a child. Shortly afterward, he developed female breast tissue in a condition known as gynecomastia, which is correctable only through surgery. Throughout our client’s childhood, he suffered intense humiliation as a result of his deformity. Our firm developed a case that held Johnson & Johnson and child company Janssen Pharmaceuticals accountable for withholding crucial information from prescribers and consumers. Johnson & Johnson vehemently denied responsibility, but the jury unanimously found them culpable for our client’s pain.

We are proud of the fact that the $76.6 million verdict is the largest single plaintiff verdict awarded for Risperdal injuries. In fact, no other verdicts come close—our client won 20 times more than the previous 4 Risperdal awards combined.

Largest Amputee Verdict in the Nation

$44 Million Won for Construction Superintendent Injured in Crane Accident

We represented a construction superintendent who lost his leg after being struck by a piece of crane equipment on the job. He was working on a jobsite off in Houston, TX where Berkel & Company had been hired to drill augur case pilings. One of the crane operators had been using a machine owned by Maxim Crane Workers to complete deep foundation drilling when the augur became stuck.

A Berkel superintendent instructed the crane operator to unstick it. Despite the fact that the crane operator attempted to put a stop to the job at least five times, eventually the crane collapsed. This caused our client to be struck by a piece of equipment—even though our client had been 100 feet away behind a safety fence. The equipment was so large it required another crane to lift it. Once he was freed, he was rushed to a local hospital and an above-the-knee amputation was performed.

Kurt Arnold showed how standard safety practices had been ignored in an effort to complete the job faster; he also argued that the crane had been poorly inspected. The jury found both of the companies to be negligent and awarded $44 million to our client. This case was listed #43 in The National Law Journal's Top 100 Verdicts of 2015 and is the largest amputee verdict in the nation.

Making History in Hawaii

$41 Million Verdict Won for a Client Who Was Wronged in Business Deal

Attorneys Kurt Arnold and Jason Itkin represented a Houston investor who had been secretly cut out of a deal to purchase of the largest lumber companies in Hawaii. We took on the case, which led to a five-week jury trial against one of the East Coast's largest firms.

The jury found the defendant guilty of the following:

  • Breaching their fiduciary duties;
  • Violating Hawaii's unfair competition statute; and
  • Intentionally interfering with our client's efforts to acquire the company.

Our firm recovered $41 million, is a record award for commercial cases in Hawaii.

Refinery Explosion

We Represented Workers Injured in the 2005 Texas City Refinery Explosion

In March 2005, a massive explosion occurred at a BP refinery in Texas City, TX.

The incident is reported to have killed 15 of the plant's workers and to have injured more than 170 other individuals. In the wake of this accident, many of the workers turned to our injury lawyers for representation. Through cases such as this, we have demonstrated not only a clear ability to win, but also a sincere commitment to our clients' success.

As Attorney Jason Itkin said:

"At Arnold & Itkin, you are not a number or a claims file, like you may get treated by the plant's lawyers or the plant's adjusters. You're a real person. We understand that if you get hurt, there are real consequences to you and to your family. If you hire us, we can use our knowledge of how the plants work and how they are supposed to work, to put a better case together for you and make sure your rights are protected."

Serious Railroad Accidents

We Won Over $10 Million in a Case Against Union Pacific

Our lawyers represented a Louisiana family who filed suit after a grade crossing accident killed a mother of four and a paralyzed a five-year-old girl. Our firm set out to prove that the crossing involved in the accident was a unique safety hazard and that the defendant, Union Pacific, should have installed active warning devices. We presented evidence to the jury that stated the orientation of the crossing made it difficult to look to the left.

In the end, the jury agreed that the crossing was hazardous, and we won a $10.9 million verdict on behalf of the family we were helping.

Renowned Truck Accident Attorneys

Our Law Firm Has Helped Represent Countless Truck Accident Victims

At our firm, we recognize the dangers that commercial trucks pose to drivers on the road. This can stem from tired truck drivers, poorly maintained trucks, or any other related issue. For this reason, we have been proud to help clients protect their legal rights after serious truck accidents.

Examples of some truck accident cases we have handled include the following:

  • $2.2 Million We helped a 33-year-old truck driver who was struck while making a properly signaled turn by another truck. The accident left her with long-term injuries.
  • $1.5 Million Our client had been struck by a tractor trailer while on his job site, which left him with a torn meniscus that required serious arthroscopic knee surgery.
