Seven-figure truck accident settlement
Attorneys Tom Lucas and Todd O'Malley represented a person who was struck by a heating oil tanker truck. We retained Leah Kane at Exhibit A, a trial technology agency, to digitally present the accident and injuries during mediation. The defendant paid $1.1 million to settle the case prior to trial.
Six-figure auto accident settlement and verdict
O'Malley & Langan also represented a husband and wife who were injured in a multi-car pile-up. The wife suffered severe injuries including Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) of the arm. O'Malley & Langan utilized the resources of an accident reconstructionist, a retired State Trooper, an economist and numerous medical doctors to prove the case to a jury. Attorney Todd O'Malley and Mary Walsh-Dempsey tried the case for two days before obtaining a six-figure settlement.
Truck accident verdict
We represented the widow of a truck driver killed in a one-vehicle accident. After the defendant argued that the deceased driver was not acting in the course and scope of his employment, the judge denied benefits. On appeal, the decision of the judge was reversed and benefits were granted to the widow and her two minor children.
Slip and fall accident verdict and settlement
We represented a woman who worked as a school custodian. When she fell on construction materials that were strewn on the floor, her employer denied her medical treatment. After filing with the Workers' Compensation Bureau, the judge granted ongoing medical treatment and wage loss benefits into the future. We also obtained a third-party settlement against the construction company responsible for the debris.
Wrongful death workplace accident verdict
We represented a widow whose husband died on the job. The company denied benefits by arguing that his heart attack was not caused by his work activity. We obtained a records review and an opinion from a noted cardiologist that linked the heart attack to his work. Benefits were awarded to the widow and her minor children.
Car accident settlement and verdict
After being involved in a car accident while riding in a company car driven by a co-worker, one of our clients was told by an insurance company that she could only recover payment of medical bills and actual lost wages. On her behalf, O'Malley & Langan recovered significant damages for pain and suffering, as well as lost wages and medical expenses.
Slip and fall accident settlement and verdict
Our client entered her place of employment, a place where her employer leases the premises. She slipped and fell in an area of the parking lot that was poorly maintained. Specifically, the parking lot was filled with depressions and potholes. These depressions would fill with snow and/or water and freeze when the temperatures dropped.
We represented her on her Workers' Compensation claim, and the employer paid her Workers' Compensation benefits stemming from her injury. We filed suit against the property owner, on the basis that the property owner failed to properly maintain the premises. The employer testified that they made numerous requests to the property owner seeking repairs of the parking lot, and these requests were ignored.
The claim was resolved in favor of the client, and the settlement resulted in additional payment to our client and her husband. Not only did this settlement adequately compensate our client for their losses, it resulted in reimbursement of the benefits paid by the Workers' Compensation insurance carrier. The employer had accepted liability for Workers' Compensation benefits, and paid the injured worker for her lost wages and medical expenses. Since it was ultimately determined that the injury was the responsibility of the property owner, the employer and/or its Workers' Compensation insurer was legally entitled to be reimbursed for the benefits paid to the injured worker.
