Megan has been involved in a number of eight and nine 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.
Recently, she obtained a six-figure verdict in a binding arbitration on behalf of a 71-year-old client who was injured when an underinsured driver made an improper turn in front of her. After over 20 years of paying premiums, the client was left fighting her own insurance company for benefits she was owed. Megan, alongside fellow associate Atticus Wegman, was able to effectively secure more than $300,000 for their client.
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.
