Type: Negligent repairs by an automotive dealership that caused a mechanical failure to client’s car that resulted in permanent injuries to Plaintiff.

Facts: The automotive dealership performed negligent mechanic work on a client’s vehicle.  Three days after the mechanic work was performed, the drive train of the client’s vehicle seized as she was accelerating up an interstate entrance ramp.  The incident caused orthopedic injuries that required surgeries.  Despite acknowledging notification to preserve the parts removed from the client’s vehicle, the automotive dealership lost the automotive parts removed which entitled the client to an adverse jury instruction for spoliation of evidence.  Bulluck Law Group brought a lawsuit against the auto dealership as being vicariously liable for the negligence of its mechanic while in the course and scope of his employment.

Judgment: The highest offer made by the insurance company before filing a lawsuit was $15,000.00.  At trial, the jury returned a verdict in the amount of $1,610,000.00.  After post trial set-offs for collateral sources, the judge reduced the jury verdict to $1,581,314.63.  Bulluck Law Group triggered a Proposal for Settlement and the court awarded an additional $140,000.00 in attorney’s fees making the gross recovery $1,721,314.63.
