Aitken * Aitken * Cohn Lawyers Win $23.5 Million Verdict
April 30, 2007
In a matter tried by Wylie, Chris and Casey at the Orange County Superior Court, a jury returned a verdict in Aitken * Aitken * Cohn’s client’s favor in the amount of $23.5 million. Fourteen year old Cade F. suffered a traumatic brain injury and has had more than 24 surgeries after the defendant ran a red light at an intersection in Costa Mesa. The defendant, a western sales manager, was employed by a Nebraska company. The company was found responsible for damages to plaintiff when the jury ruled the defendant was in the course and scope of his employment with the company.
The Family Website States:
“During this past year and a half, Cade has shown us his tremendous inner strength and will to get better. We believe that even though he has a long journey ahead of him, his spirit and fight will get him through it, with God by his side.”
As a result of the accident, Cade will require 24-hour care for the rest of his life and has trouble speaking and walking. The Feitler family’s medical bills have totaled approximately $4.89 million.
Following the verdict on September 26, 2006, Wylie told the Orange County Register, “It’s heartwarming to have 12 people show up and give their time to listen to evidence and make a good decision and help a young boy.”
Congratulations to the trial team, and we will keep you updated on Cade’s progress.
