Case Settled - Electrocution
The team of Nielsen & Mukerji, LLP settled a case in early 2012 for $800,000, where two clients were electrocuted. Both clients worked for the same Subcontractor. That Subcontractor as well as a second Subcontractor were hired by a General Contractor to mix and pour cement at a commercial construction site. An employee of the second Subcontractor drove a boom truck into power lines, and the lines came down where they electrocuted the two clients. Both were permanently disabled as a result of the accident.
Case Won - Head-on Collision
Attorney Eric Nielsen represented the widow of a cabdriver who died in a head-on collision after another driver went over the median and ended up in the cabdriver's lane. The at-fault driver only had a $20,000 policy. Upon reviewing the case, attorney Nielsen sent a "Stowers Demand Letter" to the at-fault's insurance company, which, in effect, states that if they didn't tender the $20k, the insured at-fault party would be able to come after the insurance company for ANY verdict in excess of the $20,000 policy limits. Still, the insurance company refused to pay the $20,000. At trial, a verdict was passed down for nearly $800,000. The insurance company refused to pay anything in excess of the $20,000, so they appealed the verdict and the effectiveness of the Stower's demand letter. The Texas Court of Appeals upheld the verdict and the Stower's letter. After the Texas Supreme Court refused to hear the case, the original defendant sued her own insurance company for negligently and, in bad faith, not paying the policy limits of $20,000. The at-fault insurance company finally decided to settle for $1,000,000 which included pre-judgment and post-judgment interest, as well as attorney's fees, etc.
Case Settled - 18-wheeler Collision
Attorney Sam Mukerji settled a case recently where a woman had a surgical recommendation for her neck and lower back from an orthopedic surgeon. She didn't want to get the surgery at the time because she was young. Attorney Mukerji was able to convince the 18-wheeler's insurance company that she would definitely get surgery and the case settled at mediation for $215,000.
Case Settled - 18-wheeler Collision
Attorney Sam Mukerji settled a case where a woman had a recommendation for surgery on her neck after she was rear-ended by an 18-wheeler. She did not go to the E.R., but felt pain the next day and received chiropractic treatment. While the treatment helped a bit, the chiropractor realized that her ongoing pain may be something more serious and ordered an MRI, which showed a large herniated disc in her neck. The case settled for $115,000.
Case Settled - Bicycle / Car Collision
The team of Nielsen & Mukerji, LLP settled a case where a man was riding his bike down a busy street in Houston. He was riding it legally and yet was hit from behind by a commercial van. His head struck the van's windshield, cracking it, and then his head hit the ground. The client suffered slight loss of vision in one eye. The case settled for $200,000 at mediation, after the at-fault's insurance company initially denied total responsibility.
Case Won – Workplace Injury
Attorneys Leo Kishinevsky and Leena Fenner of Nielsen & Mukerji, LLP have won a work injury trial where the employer did not provide fall protection, as required by OSHA, to its employee. The defendant’s main argument was that our client was an independent contractor and not a full time employee. The defendant employer refused to take responsibility for the serious injuries it caused to its employee and refused to make any offer of settlement prior to trial. The verdict at trial was in favor of Plaintiff and our law firm was able to secure a verdict of $374,500.
