Megan has been involved in a number of seven and eight figure settlements, arbitrations, and verdicts in trial. In December 2018, Megan tried a medical malpractice matter alongside Partner Richard Cohn, securing a seven-figure verdict for the clients.
As co-lead counsel, with Chris Aitken, Megan obtained an $11 million settlement with the California Republican Party on behalf of a Riverside Man paralyzed after a freeway collision. That result earned her the 2022 CAOIE Streetfighter of the Year Award and a CAOC 2021 Finalist for Consumer Attorney of the Year.
The Riverside native helped secure a $38.5 million settlement with partner Chris Aitken for construction workers injured when part of a bridge under construction in Corona collapsed on the 91 freeway. Along with partner Richard Cohn, Megan achieved a $12 million settlement with Riverside County to compensate a wife and mother with breast cancer who suffered severe brain damage after doctors negligently put an intubation tube into her esophagus instead of her trachea.
Megan was also involved and named in a rare and remarkable decision, in which the California Court of Appeal Fourth Appellate District, Division Three, reversed the trial court’s granting of Defendant’s summary judgment motion in the matter of Sumrall v. Modern Alloys. The defendant company argued that their employee driver was not acting within the course and scope of his employment under the “going and coming” rule. Plaintiffs argued that the company was liable under the “business errand” exception. The Court of Appeal unanimously sided with the Plaintiffs where they reasoned, “Because we can draw two reasonable inferences from these undisputed facts, we cannot affirm the trial court’s grant of summary judgment.” After returning to the trial court, Megan was involved in the dramatic $9 million settlement.
