Auto Vs. Truck - $4,500,000

$4,500,000

In April 2017 Attorneys Arash Homampour and Scott Boyer settled a particularly tough Auto versus Truck case for $4.5 million against the City of Los Angeles.  We alleged that the City’s truck was illegally and dangerously stopped in the middle of the road. Having collided with the back of a semi-truck operated by the City’s Street Services, plaintiff incurred significant injuries resulting in great mental and physical pain and suffering.

The city contended that their employee had followed all the correct procedures for warning oncoming traffic of a stopped vehicle, including the fact that the semi-truck’s emergency lights had been activated before the collision occurred.  Additionally, the City argued that the plaintiff was driving in excess of the speed limit, contributing significantly to his injuries.

Through aggressive litigation the Homampour team were able to show that regardless of plaintiff’s excessive speed, the City employee had indeed negligently operated parked the semi-truck when delivering equipment to a city work project, resulting in the City settling before trial for $4.5 million.

Motorcycle Vs. Van - $14,250,000

$14,250,000

In April 2017 Attorneys Arash Homampour and Scott Boyer successfully obtained a $14.25 million dollar pre-lawsuit settlement for the wrongful death of a 53 year old motorcyclist who left behind a loving wife and three children.

An experienced rider, the decedent was navigating the carpool lane on CA I-105 when he was hit by the defendant driving a rental van.  The defense contended that decedent travelled through the double yellow lines without showing due care and was therefore liable for the accident.  Not only that, the defense disputed the nature and extent of the damages claimed.

Through impeccable efforts, gathering of eye-witnesses statements and utilizing the latest accident reconstruction techniques, the Homampour team was able to demonstrate that it was in fact the defendant who made the unsafe and illegal move across the double yellow lines, thus colliding with decedent and causing his fatal injuries.

The Homampour team was also able to ascertain that the defendant was working for her employer at the time, making them vicariously liable for the incident.  While this enabled the Homampour team to secure a sizeable award for the family, it can never replace their loving husband and father.

Premises Liability - $4,350,000

$4,350,000

In March 2017, Attorneys Arash Homampour and Scott Boyer settled a challenging liability Premise Liability case for $4.35 million.  The case initially appeared to be an ordinary but tragic Motor Vehicle versus Pedestrian accident. The Plaintiff, a 36 year old student, was riding his skateboard on an access road of a school when he was struck by a car causing horrific injuries: near amputation of his right arm with resultant reattachment surgery, finger amputation, multiple other surgeries, post-traumatic stress disorder and severe emotional distress.

Another law firm sought out the Homampour team to help with the case and a premise liability claim was brought against the school for maintaining an unsafe premises. We contended that the school negligently designed and constructed a trash bin enclosure so that it obstructed the view for students entering the access road from the walkway ramp and vehicles traveling down the access road. We established that defendant school should have been aware through reasonable inspections of the dangerous condition created by the obstruction and failed to take any corrective action or warn of the dangers.

Defendant school fought back arguing that the location was safe, there was no ordinance requiring a crosswalk or warning sign in the access road and there had been no similar accidents in the area since the trash bin enclosure was constructed in 2003. Defendant school contended that plaintiff was exclusively (or comparatively) at fault for the incident by knowingly riding his skateboard down a ramp, in violation of school policy, into a known parking lot/access road area without first determining whether there was any danger from oncoming traffic. Defendant also contended that the other driver was responsible for failing to keep a proper look out. Defendants also contended that the trash bin enclosure was open and obvious and the absence of any prior similar accidents evidenced the alleged configuration did not constitute a dangerous condition. Plaintiff had both driven and ridden his skateboard in the access road numerous times before the incident.

Despite these challenges and through aggressive and creative lawyering, the Homampour Team was able to obtain this phenomenal result for this client.

The Deposition And Cross-Exam Of Defense Experts

The Deposition And Cross-Exam Of Defense Experts

What is a defense “expert”? To the inexperienced or unenlightened lawyer, the thought of cross-examining the other side’s “expert” may conjure up fear and doubt. In reality, experts are of varying professional quality and temperament: they can be very good, or they can be mediocre, maniacs, shoddy, BS artists, money-hungry vultures, myopic, arrogant, angry, condescending, unprepared, and the list goes on and on and on.

The point is that cross-examining experts is really not any different than with a lay witness. In fact, I find it easier.
