WASHINGTON, Nov. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Every case is different. Settlements and verdicts in all cases depend on various factors and circumstances which are unique to each individual case. Past case results are not a guarantee or prediction of similar results in future cases in which Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel, P.C. or its lawyers may undertake.
Joseph Cammarata – Partner at the Washington, DC personal injury law firm Chaikin, Sherman, Cammarata & Siegel, P.C. – secured an arbitration award of over $319,000 for a client injured in a DC car accident. According to the lawsuit (Superior Court of the District of Columbia, 2013 CA 0004321), the case involved an auto accident that occurred when another driver attempted to change lanes and caused a collision with the firm's client. The driver claimed the firm's client had moved into his lane.
After filing the lawsuit and investigating the case, Partner Joseph Cammarata agreed to a request from the driver's insurance company to resolve the case by binding arbitration. Because the insurance company agreed that its driver was at fault, Partner Cammarata and the firm agreed to go to arbitration. The only issue for the arbitrator to decide was the nature and extent of injuries and damages experienced by the firm's client.
As a result of the collision, the firm's client suffered a concussion and a worsening of a pre-existing sleeping condition. In addition, he also aggravated a lower back problem. After Partner Cammarata presented the testimony of the client's doctor, his wife, and the client himself, the arbitrator, who was the former Chief Judge of the Civil Division of the DC Superior Court, awarded $319,924 to the client.
Partner Cammarata's ability to secure this positive resolution through binding arbitration highlights his ability to succeed in a variety of forums, including mediation and litigation.
