Arash Homampour Daily Journal 2018 Top Plaintiff Lawyer

2018 Daily Journal Top Plaintiff Lawyer

Once again, Arash Homampour has been recognized as one of the Top 30 Plaintiff Lawyers by The Los Angeles Daily Journal (California's largest and most prestigious legal newspaper). The article highlights his success with two very difficult trials in which he won jury verdicts of $59.3 million in a wrongful death case against Sunbeam Products and $14 million for insurance bad faith against Allstate Insurance Company. These two cases vividly illustrate the David v. Goliath theme the Homampour Law Firm is so good at. Although these two verdicts were in 2015, we see how the firm’s relentless pursuit of justice help clients navigate through appeals and win final payment in 2017. This year, the firm has already secured two eight figure verdicts in very tough wrongful death cases in conservative venues.

$12,250,000 Wrongful Death

image001.jpg

 

The Homampour Law Firm talks about how through effective framing and advocacy we can win (and win big) what seem to be impossibly tough cases at trial in any jurisdiction (even those considered to be ultra conservative.)

Facts

On September 4, 2018 and after a 5 day trial, a Fresno Jury found that Defendants who operated a large outdoor market and swap meet were legally responsible for the death of a vendor who mistakenly contacted an energized power line on Defendants’ property with his advertising banner/flag.

The jury awarded $12.25 million in damages to the decedent’s wife (even though she spoke no English and was a seasonal farm worker who sold inexpensive parts at swap meets throughout central California with her husband.)

Defendant’s Contentions

Despite repeated attempts to settle the case below policy limits, Defendants’ insurance carrier refused to offer anything more than $700,000. Defendants’ attorneys argued that everyone knows power lines are dangerous, that the hazard was "open and obvious", that they never had anyone use an advertising banner/flag as tall as Plaintiff’s, and that the incident was 100% the fault of the Plaintiff and her husband.

Result

We won by reframing the case and demonstrating that this tragic event was an accident waiting to happen. It was Defendants that created a highly dangerous condition. Defendants put approximately 20 (out of 800) vendor spaces directly underneath high voltage lines knowing vendors were using tall advertising banners to visually compete with the other 500 vendors. We were able to cross-examine the defense experts into agreeing that this tragedy was foreseeable and preventable in that Defendants could have simply blocked off the 20 spaces under the unprotected high voltage lines. We also demonstrated that Defendants knew or should have known that vendors were using tall advertising banners, with a photograph of a long standing vendor with a 34 foot tall flag.

We obtained what some consider to be a very high damage award but we think is a fair amount for our client’s devastating lifetime loss and mental harm. Even though the Plaintiff’s husband died that day, we were effectively able to bring him to life for the jurors so that they could see and feel through Plaintiff the beauty of this man - beaming, smiling, and shining love. Imagine having (as the lucky significant other) that energy in your life every day how awesome life would be? Now imagine what it would be to have that snatched from you with no warning, you are forced to watch him die and will forever have that event seared into your mind. Such a shame. . . and the insurance company didn’t value the case like we did.

$5,000,000 Auto Versus Pedestrian | Personal Injury And Wrongful Death

$5,000,000

In May 2018 Attorneys Arash Homampour and Scott Boyer  successfully obtained a $5 million dollar settlement on behalf of two minor children for the wrongful death of their mother.

In a very difficult liability case, plaintiff minors and their mother were pedestrians crossing the street mid-block to get to their home when they were struck by the defendant driving a work truck. The minors suffered minor injuries which they recovered from but their mother died as a result of the collision. The defense contended that our clients and their mother crossed a very busy street mid-block and outside of a marked crosswalk and failed to yield to oncoming traffic in violation of multiple Vehicle Code sections and were thus exclusively at fault for the incident. The defense also claimed that the driver would not have been able to see our clients in the roadway in time to avoid the collision because it was night time and our clients were wearing dark clothing. The police had determined that even knowing the exact positioning of the pedestrians in the roadway, the defendant driver would not have been able to avoid the collision and cited the decedent as the cause of the collision.

Undeterred by the police findings and difficult facts on liability, through dogged investigation and using the most advanced human factors and accident reconstruction methods,  the Homampour team was able to locate and obtain testimony from favorable witnesses and then show that the defendant driver had accelerated when passing a vehicle which had stopped in the roadway to allow the pedestrians to cross the street and the driver would have had sufficient time to see and stop for the pedestrians had he not been traveling at an unsafe speed and failed to exercise due care. 

Although the Homampour team was able to secure a sizeable settlement for our clients to fund their future education and needs, it will never replace the loss of their loving mother.
