$117 Million Ambulance Accident Verdict

Kurt Arnold & Jason Itkin talk about their experience and the success at trial of their case involving a woman who was in an ambulance accident. The result? Their client will now receive the best care available to her for the rest of her life and they secured the largest single-verdict in the history of Louisiana.

If ever a family needed the best lawyers, it was this family. A sweet young woman was horrifically injured while she was pregnant on her way to the hospital. She was paralyzed, basically from the neck down, and had a really bad brain injury. She couldn’t talk. She was in about a bad of a situation as someone could ever be.

After her accident, once she was stabilized at the critical care unit, their recommendation was: “We can’t do anything for her. Let’s put her in a nursing home.” She had two children. So, the option for her was nursing home because there’s nothing more we can do or she hired our firm. And her mother did actually. Hired our firm, and we got her transferred to get her the very best cognitive care. To do that, we invested more than two million dollars to get her the best medical care. Two million dollars that were at risk—that we put out of our own money—and if we had lost for any reason, we wouldn’t have recovered.

Despite them having a courtroom full of lawyers and a bunch of high-paid, high-priced experts to come in and say whatever they wanted them to say, we were able to convince the jury to see through all of that—to see the truth.

And, so, after the defendant refused to pay the medical care—we, after several depositions, tried the case and got the biggest verdict in Louisiana history for a family of $117 million. It ensured that she was put in the very best possible situation for the rest of her life.

Her speech improved enough that she could talk a little bit. She was able to spend time with her young children and recognize who they were because we were able to get her the therapies and the treatment and the medical supplies and the medicine.

Now she can today, after what we helped her go through, she takes care of herself. She takes care of her children. Her children are in her house. She has full-time care to have the best quality of life.
