Auto Accident - Confidential Settlement from Insurance Company

Auto Accident Leaves College Student with Unexpected Back Injury

Jessica's case was a rare one for Bisnar Chase Personal Injury Attorneys. Of course, it was an auto accident case, which is nothing out of the ordinary. But her case was special because she was referred to us by another client - her father. Nearly 10 years ago, her father was in a serious auto accident that caused him to have back surgery and stay out of work for a year.

Jessica, 20, who is pursuing an undergraduate degree in psychology in Orange County, was fortunate in the sense that she was not as seriously injured as her father. The incident occurred in August 2006. She was crossing an intersection in her vehicle when a driver made a left turn in front of her. Jessica had the right of way, but the driver did not stop.

Myatt never found out. Half way up the hill, about two miles away from Lake Shaver, the driver of a pickup truck who took a wide turn and was traveling over the speed limit slammed into Myatt's Prius head-on from the opposite direction.

Robert Rife
Salmonella Poisoning - Foodborne Illness

It was four years ago. But Robert Rife remembers it as if it was yesterday. He'll never forget the excruciating pain. It felt as if someone were sticking a knife through his intestines, the 60-year-old Helendale resident says. Well, he didn't get in a car accident or suffer from a debilitating disease. All he did was eat sushi.

Robert remembers the date because the day, its events and the horrific aftermath are all etched in his memory. August 28, 2003. Robert worked in Buena Park at the time, commuting 100 miles each way to Helendale and back. He and some of his colleagues decided to go to Karuta, a sushi place close to work.

"As far as I can remember, it was a nice lunch," Robert says. "I remember it because it was the only food I ate that day."

Stephanie Collins
Seatback Failure during Auto Accident
Confidential Settlement with Ford Motor Company

There is no closure when a mother loses her child. A mother never gets over a child's death. On the contrary, a child's passing leaves a void in her life - an emptiness that is only filled by memories.

Stephanie Collins lives that sad reality every day of her life. She blames Ford Motor Co. for it and for good reason.

July 14, 2000 started like any other day for Stephanie and her daughter, Crystal, who was just a month away from her eighth birthday. Crystal was sitting in the rear passenger seat of Stephanie's Ford Escort, right behind her mother in the front passenger seat. Stephanie's mom, Crystal's grandmother, was driving. When an ambulance approached, she pulled over to the side of the road to make way for the ambulance.
