Wilshire Law Firm Reaches New $3.25 Million Settlement


December, 20 2018 | Press Releases

LOS ANGELES, CA. December 19, 2018 – Wilshire Law Firm trial attorneys Colin Jones and Bobby Saadian have announced that they have reached an agreement for a $3.25 million settlement on behalf of client Oralia Michel. Mrs. Michel was the victim of a car accident in Inglewood, CA in August of 2016, where she suffered several injuries that continue to affect her.

While traveling south along Interstate 405, Mrs. Michel stopped due to traffic ahead. As she did, the defendant, an employee for J Deluca Fish Company, failed to slow down, striking Mrs. Michel’s vehicle from the rear. Because the defendant’s negligent actions occurred while they were on the job, both the defendant and their employer were found liable.

Mrs. Michel’s road to recovery has been a struggle. Testing revealed that, in addition to injuries to her cervical and lumbar spine, she also suffered a traumatic brain injury. After returning to work for a brief time, the pain in her back, left side, and left arm became so overwhelming that Mrs. Michel had no choice but to stop working. After physical therapy failed to improve her position, she was forced to undergo cervical spinal fusion surgery in February 2018.

Even after surgery, the injuries suffered by Mrs. Michel are still affecting her life today. As a mother of two young boys, she is no longer able to play with them as she once did because of her injuries. It is also extremely difficult for her to care for her autistic son, robbing her of the joy of parenting. With this exceptional settlement, Mrs. Michel and her family can finally move forward from this awful incident.

“Being in a car accident takes away a victim’s peace of mind—our job as personal injury lawyers is to help them gain it back,” said lead trial attorney Colin Jones. “While no amount can ever undo the damage of an accident, our legal team works tirelessly to make our client’s voices heard and deliver the best results.”
