    Largest Single-Event Personal Injury Verdict in Louisiana History

    Arnold & Itkin, LLP successfully tried a case on behalf of the victim of a severe ambulance accident. The plaintiff had been seven months pregnant and experiencing stomach pain when she called Acadian Ambulance to pick her up and transport her to the hospital in December 2010. The driver of the ambulance who picked her up had a history of bad driving and poor vision. When driving down LA-1 North, he dropped his RSI device onto the floor. Without reducing speed, he leaned down to locate and grab it – completely looking away from the road. During this time, he drove the ambulance into the back of a sugar cane truck. The plaintiff's spine was severed at T4 during the accident and she sustained serious brain injuries. There is no chance of a full recovery and she will be in a wheel chair for the rest of her life.

    At the time of the verdict, she had already sustained medical bills in excess of $1.4 million, with an estimated cost of $30 million for her future care plan. After the accident, her unborn daughter was prematurely delivered; since then, both the infant and the plaintiff's other daughter have gone to live with their grandmother.

    Arnold & Itkin, LLP was able to successfully prove fault on behalf of the ambulance driver and succeeded in obtaining a $117 million verdict for the mother, as well as her two daughters.

    Verdict Won Against Johnson & Johnson for Boy Who Grew Female Breasts

    Attorney Jason Itkin, Kyle Findley, and the team from Arnold & Itkin, including Santana McMurrey and Cory Itkin, won a $76.6 million jury verdict against Johnson & Johnson and Janssen Pharmaceutical. Jason and Kyle represented a family that sued J&J for failing to warn them that J&J’s antipsychotic medicine Risperdal could cause young boys to grow female breasts. By winning the verdict, Arnold & Itkin held J&J accountable for disfiguring their client.

    The defendants fought at every turn. They argued that this was the only drug that worked, that he continued to stay on the drug after being informed of the risks, and that the drug does not cause gynecomastia (female breasts growth on males). During trial, the Arnold & Itkin attorneys also uncovered evidence through cross-examination that became known in the case as "Tab 4." The information in Tab 4 had never become public until the trial. Tab 4 included scientific data showing a link between Risperdal and gynecomastia. J&J intentionally kept Tab 4 secret, withholding it from the FDA and keeping it out of published scientific studies.The jury found that J&J intentionally falsified, concealed, or destroyed material evidence.

    After an 11 day trial, the Philadelphia jury unanimously found that the defendant failed to warn of the side effects associated with the drug and that the failure to warn was a substantial factor in causing gynecomastia. The jury awarded Arnold & Itkin’s client $76.6 million. This is the largest single verdict in a Risperdal-gynecomastia case.

    The Largest Verdict Ever Won for an Amputee Victim

    Attorney Kurt Arnold represented a construction superintendent who sustained catastrophic injuries after a serious crane accident off Memorial Drive in Houston, TX. On the job, Berkel & Company had been hired to drill auger cast pilings. One of their crane operators had been operating a machine owned by Maxim Crane Works while completing deep foundation drilling when the auger became stuck; at that time, a Berkel superintendent instructed the crane operator to attempt to unstick the auger. The operator attempted to stop the job at least five times. The crane eventually collapsed.

    At the time of the collapse, our client had been standing behind a safety fence approximately 100 feet from the auger when a piece of crane equipment struck him and pinned him down. It took a crane to lift the equipment off of him. He was then rushed to a hospital where an above-the-knee amputation was performed.

    The trial took place over a three week period during which Kurt helped to show the jury that standard safety practices had been violated multiple times by Berkel in an attempt to finish the project quickly. Kurt also argued that Maxim was responsible for poorly inspecting the crane. The jury deliberated and found both companies to be negligent. They awarded damages for medical expenses, loss of earning capacity, physical impairment, physical pain, and mental anguish. They also awarded $8.5 million in punitive damages.

    This case was listed #43 in The National Law Journal's Top 100 Verdicts of 2015.

    Record Verdict Won for Victim of Industrial Accident

    Kyle Findley, Kala Sellers, and Adam Lewis represented a worker who was severely burned in a dust fire and explosion at a Georgia-Pacific plywood plant in Corrigan, TX. In 2004, Georgia-Pacific hired Aircon, Inc. to design and install a dust collection system to carry highly combustible dust from an industrial sander to a baghouse where filter bags could clean it out of the air. The system also incorporated a spark detection and suppression system manufactured by GreCon, Inc. to prevent fires and sparks from being carried into the baghouse.

    On April 26, 2014, the dust collection system, and related safety systems, failed to protect the baghouse. A fire in the system sent sparks through the ductwork, and the system failed to prevent an ignition source from entering the baghouse—resulting in an explosion and deflagration. At the time of the explosion, our client was unknowingly standing within range of the deflagration and was engulfed by fire. Despite suffering significant burn injuries, our client worked to help alert emergency services of the explosion to help his co-workers who were also seriously injured. Our client was eventually transported by life flight helicopter to a Tier 1 burn unit in Houston, Texas, only after confirming his co-workers had been transported for treatment.

    At the time of trial, our client had undergone seven surgical procedures and is projected to have multiple procedures in the future for his deteriorating skin and grafts. The trial took place over a three week period which allowed Kyle, Kala, and Adam to show the jury how the dust collection system was unsafe and failed to adhere to numerous industry standards. Our team also argued that the fire prevention system was installed in an unsafe location in violation of company policies, as well as industry standards.

    The jury deliberated and found both defendants negligent for their unsafe design and failure to warn the plant of the hazards associated with the system. The jury awarded damages for medical expenses, loss of earning capacity, disfigurement, physical impairment, physical pain, and mental anguish.
