Trucking Accident

A 15-year-old girl crossing Busch Boulevard on her way to Chamberlain High School was struck by the driver of a small pickup truck who ran a red light, hit her, and knocked her approximately 40 feet into the air.   The girl suffered brain damage and broken bones.  After two years of working intensely on this case, Mr. Ligori and his team were able to reach a settlement for $5 million – 500 times the policy limits of $10,000.

Wrongful Death

A 12-year-old boy died of cardiac arrest shortly after collapsing at youth football practice. The young boy had a rare form of sickle cell disease, and the medical examiner attributed the cause of death to this disease. Christopher Ligori & Associates vigorously and aggressively litigated this case to the point where the firm was able to determine that the child’s sickle cell disease had little or nothing to do with his death and that the boy had died of heat stroke. Team members took depositions in this case in Storrs, CT.; Oakland, CA ; and Baltimore, MD . They then consulted with experts as far away as New Mexico, Minnesota, Illinois (Chicago), California (Sonoma Valley) and Pennsylvania (Philadelphia). The legal team was happy to reveal the truth in this case and brought justice to the family for the death of their child.

Wrongful Death

An 11-year-old boy was at youth football practice when he collapsed and later died. The coaches and administrators stated that the practice had just started ten minutes before the boy collapsed and that they were not at fault for his death. The defense attributed his death to the boy carrying the sickle cell trait. After diligently litigating this case and taking over 100 depositions, the team at Christopher Ligori & Associates was able to establish that the coaches and team administrators were in fact lying about the amount of time the practice had been in progress prior to this young man’s collapse. As a result of extremely diligent and highly-contested litigation, the legal team was proud to have uncovered the truth and administered justice for this child’s parents.

Car Accident

A female client on her way home from work was in a collision and suffered a closed head injury. The defense in this case repeatedly hid the amount of the policy limits and tried to settle the case for a much lower amount. Christopher Ligori & Associates aggressively litigated the case for two years, discovered the correct policy limits, and resolved this case for the full limit plus additional compensation.

Car Accident

The plaintiff was driving in Tampa, FL when a car pulled in front of him causing an accident. The plaintiff hurt his left knee and went to the hospital.  The knee injury subsequently required an arthroscopic procedure to repair torn cartilage. Progressive Insurance refused to pay the policy limits. The jury came back with a verdict in excess of the plaintiff’s proposal for settlement, requiring the defendant’s carrier to pay the attorney’s fees and costs for the case.

Car Accident

A plaintiff was driving in Pinellas County when a car pulled out from a red light and struck the right front panel of his vehicle. The plaintiff was seventeen at the time and injured his knee, and subsequently required arthroscopic surgery. The defendant did not have bodily injury coverage, therefore the plaintiff filed suit against his uninsured/underinsured motorist carrier, GEICO. The jury came back several times regarding the medical bills, and the verdict triggered a proposal for settlement. This meant that the insurance company had to pay the attorney’s fees and costs for the plaintiff. The plaintiff ended up with almost the entire verdict of $265,000.
