Robert Allard, Law Firm of Corsiglia, McMahon & Allard Named 2009 Trial Lawyer of the Year
Date:12/9/2009

Santa Clara County Trial Lawyers Association names Robert Allard, law firm of Corsiglia, McMahon & Allard, as its 2009 Trial Lawyer of the Year for the second time in three years.

(PRWEB) December 9, 2009 -- For the second time in three years Robert Allard of the law firm Corsiglia, McMahon & Allard has been named Trial Lawyer of the Year by the Santa Clara County Trial Lawyers Association.

Allard has developed a reputation for taking tough cases where insurance companies offer little or no money to an injured victim and for providing aggressive representation which generates just compensation for his clients.

In a case earlier this year, Egbert vs. Nor Cal ReLiEF, Allard secured a $2.056 million arbitration award for a public school behavioral specialist who was seriously injured in a head-on car crash while traveling on a school field trip. Despite a clear case of liability, horrific injuries and hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills and lost wages, the school district's relief fund (Nor Cal ReLiEF) never offered a penny in settlement and resorted to fighting the victim every step of the way.

In another case, a nursing assistant suffered severe neck problems that required surgery after she was rear-ended at ten miles an hour. Allard took over the case from another law firm and secured $1.25 million from Allstate. For years Allstate claimed that a low speed accident could not cause such medical problems. Upon taking over the case Allard successfully developed the proof that his client's pre-existing conditions triggered the neck injuries and subsequent surgical procedures.

“Robert Allard tirelessly works for justice on behalf of his clients. He has a commitment to holding those that injure hardworking Americans personally responsible for their actions,” said Mark Sigala, President, Santa Clara County Trial Lawyers Association.

Allard began 2009 with a bang, winning a jury verdict of $1.85 million against a $100k offer for a motorcyclist who suffered a serious leg injury (Allen v. Bottomley). The jury awarded what is believed to be one of the highest proportionate awards for general damages in Santa Clara County in recent years (over 8 times the special damages, which consisted only of medical bills since wage loss was not claimed).

The Trial Lawyer of the Year award is conferred annually by the SCCTLA to an attorney who has achieved legal justice against the odds. Allard also won the award in 2007.
