San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 22, 2013
Kershaw, Cutter & Ratinoff, LLP -- On July 16, 2013, a San Francisco jury (California Superior Court, County of San Francisco, Case# 223879) awarded $596,834 to a man seriously injured when a car failed to ‘yield the right of way’ and struck his motorcycle. The Plaintiff was represented by experienced motorcycle injury attorneys, Eric Ratinoff and J.R. Parker of the Sacramento, California personal injury law firm of Kershaw, Cutter & Ratinoff, LLP.
The insurance company for the car’s driver argued that the motorcyclist was speeding and at least 75% at fault for the collision. The jury disagreed based on the evidence presented at trial, and awarded the motorcyclist nearly $200,000 in medical bills, $300,000 in past pain and suffering, and $100,000 in future damages.
A founding partner at Kershaw, Cutter & Ratinoff, attorney Eric Ratinoff takes pride in the perseverance of his client. “We are very proud of our client who pursued this matter with dignity and never gave up in the face of a defense that unfairly tried to shift the lion’s share of the blame onto him.” Pleased with the verdict, Ratinoff added, “At the end of the day the jury agreed with us, awarding him more than 20 times the highest pre-trial offer.”
Attorney J.R. Parker, also a partner at the firm, agrees. “We’re often forced to go to trial when reasonable and responsible settlements that can help to make our clients whole can’t be reached. But if that’s the case, we’re fully prepared with the experience and resources necessary to try cases. Obviously, we’re pleased with the outcome of this case and what it means to our client.”
Attorneys Eric Ratinoff and J.R. Parker represent injured plaintiffs in Automobile and Motorcycle Accidents, Insurance Bad Faith, Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries, Class Action, Defective Medical Products and Product Liability cases, demonstrating the firm’s ability to devote substantial resources through trials involving large corporations. Kershaw, Cutter & Ratinoff, LLP has generated hundreds of millions of dollars in recoveries for their clients and the classes they have represented.
