$1,900,000.00 (1.9 Million Dollars) – Wrongful death | Halpern Law Firm

Caused by City trash truck accident in Sylmar.

Our clients father was killed when a trash truck ran him over in Sylmar. The defendant City of Los Angeles claimed that the decedent was responsible for the accident because he rode his bike from the sidewalk into the street. This was a tough case since the decedent had drugs in his system at the time of the accident and may rode into the path of the turning trash truck. Also defendant argued that the value of this case was limited because the decedent had a poor relationship with his family and was unemployed. We refused to accept the Defendants character attacks on our clients father and pushed this case to the brink of trial. Finally the defendant capitulated and agreed to pay 1.9 Million to the mans family.
