Kuzyk Law Personal Injury Attorneys and staff regularly bring to trial or settle hundreds of cases ranging from small cases that settle for minimum liability limits (such as $15,000 in California auto accident cases) to multi-million dollar settlements in auto accident, motorcycle accident, pedestrian accident, bike accident, slip and fall and wrongful death cases. We settle multiple cases, on average, every working day.
In cases with more significant injuries and medical bills, we regularly obtain 6- and 7-figure settlements. We fight hard for our clients, and always do our best to obtain the maximum recovery for our client.
Notable Cases include:

Acuerdo por $2 000 000; accidente en motocicleta. Un cliente tuvo un accidente en motocicleta cuando un tercero giró a la izquierda delante de él.

La compañía de seguros le ofreció un acuerdo por los $25 000 estipulados en el límite del contrato, cantidad que ni siquiera cubría… medical expenses. Kuzyk Law settled the case for $200,000, after taking special steps to invalidate the policy limits.

P.S. Acton, CA$5,000,000 Settlement
Nuestra clienta, una empleada de correos de 43 años y madre de 4, estuvo involucrada en un accidente de tres carros en la Autopista 14, en Acton. Un vehículo la golpeó y la obligó a entrar a una zona en construcción, donde su coche impactó con un extremo expuesto de la barrera de contención de la mediana central, la cual estaba siendo reparada. Las compañías de seguros de… the other two drivers quickly paid the limits of their policies, but that did not begin to fairly compensate our client for the severe injuries she suffered, which included a below the knee traumatic amputation of her right leg. Kuzyk Law began investigating the condition of the construction zone, and ultimately filed a lawsuit against Caltrans and the general contractor who was performing the repairs. We discovered that the contractor had left the center median unguarded, against the advice of Caltrans’ safety engineer, in order to save the cost of erecting temporary barriers. Armed with this information, we were able to negotiate a $5 million settlement with the general contractor’s insurance company.
P.L. Victorville, CA$1,200,000 Settlement
Nuestra clienta, de 36 años y madre de 3, estuvo involucrada en un accidente automovilístico tipo “T-Bone”. Ocurrió en una de las 4 señales de alto de la intersección de la autopista 15, en Victorville. El otro conductor se pasó la señal de alto y chocó contra la puerta lateral, del lado del conductor, donde venía nuestra clienta. Ella sufrió fracturas y lesiones internas, y el… driver’s insurance company offered to settle the case for a low amount. Kuzyk Law’s evaluation of the case, however, was that P.L had suffered a traumatic brain injury (“TBI”) which warranted at least a $1 million settlement. We hired specialists in evaluating TBI cases, including a radiologist who administered a special type of MRI designed to detect changes in the brain as a result of trauma, but the defendant’s insurance company still refused to budge. The case went to trial, and after six weeks of testimony, including from our experts, the other driver’s insurance company paid $1,200,000 to settle the case.
D.S. Angeles Forest, CA$1,000,000 Settlement
Acuerdo por $1 000 000; responsabilidad del establecimiento por resbalón y caída. D. S., un conductor de autobús de 60 años de edad, se ofreció como instructor en un campamento de verano para los niños del centro de la ciudad, en el Angeles Forest. Mientras caminaba hacia el comedor, pisó un bache de lodo en un camino del campo que había sido recientemente reparado, y se cayó, rompiéndose… his left leg. The fracture was severe, requiring the insertion of a rod and multiple other surgeries, and D.S. suffered a permanent limp. The camp and the contractor who’d performed the road repairs denied responsibility for D.S.’s injuries, claiming it was all his fault. Kuzyk Law took the case, and after filing a lawsuit, discovered that the hole D.S. had stepped in was an uncovered vault containing a valve for a recently installed fire hydrant, and that the cover was being used as a doorstop in a nearby building. After this revelation, the insurance companies for the camp and the contractor jointly paid $1,000,000 to settle the case.

R.D. Lancaster, CA
Kuzyk Law kept me well informed throughout the entire process. Their friendly and informative staff always stayed on top of my claim. The insurance company at first was very friendly and even offered to give me money so that I could go to the doctor. What I didn’t know was that they were also asking for a full release of all claims. That’s when I called Kuzyk Law and from the beginning they treated me like family. I will always tell my family and friends what an awesome job they did for me. I have an attorney for life.
