A Cross Sampling of Some of Kaplan Law Corporation Trial Results

In recent years, the following trial results were won by our firm on behalf of injured railroad workers:

A Union Pacific Maintenance of Way worker was injured in Nevada and was offered $200,000.00 which was rejected. The Plaintiff received a $600,000.00 verdict in trial.

A Maintenance of Way worker who was offered $50,000.00 prior to trial and asked to resign as a condition of settlement which was rejected and he instead received a gross trial verdict of $268,000.00, plus pre-judgment interest without having to resign.

Additionally, we have obtained for clients who are relatives or friends of railroad workers, several large verdicts in non-FELA cases. For instance, we won on behalf of our client a verdict of $1,219,000.00 in a maritime case in Long Beach Superior Court. A client from Arizona received a $435,000.00 verdict from a Phoenix jury for injuries sustained in a construction accident. A plaintiff received a verdict in Norwalk Superior Court in a medical malpractice case in the amount of $248,827.00 in the face of a zero offer. We obtained a trial verdict of $430,000.00 in a Jones Act case after declining an offer of $30,000.00.
