The Law Offices of Mark S. Bishop, LLC settled a wrongful death car accident case on behalf of an 84 year-old father for a firm record $3,250,000.00 three weeks before the jury trial was set to begin. Our firm was able to overcome legal defenses asserted by the diabetic driver who claimed an unforseen episode of hypoglycemia caused the accident and his employer's claim that he was not acting within the scope of his employment when he caused the accident. The judge ruled in our favor on our motions for summary judgment defeating these defenses so the Defendants were not going to be able to assert those defenses at trial. The case settled within weeks of the Judge's ruling. If you are an attorney looking to refer a significant case to experienced counsel, give us a call.
