$1,100,000 Settlement for Auto Collision Injury with Pre-existing Condition

Case Name: Ash vs. Andrea Jo Lombardi

Case Number: 30-2020-01162108-CU-PA-CJC

Court: Orange County Superior Court

Final Result: $1,100,000

Result Date: November 2022



Attorney Chris Aitken achieved a successful outcome in a complex case involving a client with a pre-existing medical condition. The case involved an auto accident captured on video, resulting in the client requiring back surgery and a recommendation for future fusion. Despite the pre-existing condition and medical causation being a point of contention, Aitken secured a $1.1 million settlement on behalf of his client after State Farm agreed to pay the full policy limits in a recent mediation just before the trial.
