Obtained favorable six-figure settlement for cyclist who suffered a knee fracture in a collision with a pickup truck while commuting to work. To achieve the desired result, we filed suit in federal court. The defendant could not be found. We obtained access to insurance funds by means of a Colorado statute that permitted service on the liability insurance carrier. The case settled during pre-trial discovery.
In multi-party dispute over enforceability of settlement agreement, obtained dismissal of entire action against client. Opposing party had asserted "hypothetical" claim that the dispute could be relitigated against the client if the party seeking avoidance of settlement were successful. The court rejected the claim and dismissed the case. Also obtained settlement of client's claim for attorney's fees against the losing party.
