LOS ANGELES, Feb. 25, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Rose, Klein & Marias partner Harry Samarghachian won a settlement of $11,300,000, the largest settlement in California Workers' Compensation history, for his client who suffered a catastrophic traumatic brain injury.
Our client, a 29-year-old woman, was working as a nanny for a family and accompanied them on a ski vacation to Colorado to help care for their young child. While in Colorado, our client was a passenger in her employer's car and was involved in a horrific collision in which she sustained major injuries including a catastrophic traumatic brain injury. The accident has left her confined to a wheelchair and in the need of round the clock care for the rest of her life.
Initially, the insurance company denied all liability for the claim. Then Harry got involved in the case and everything changed.
Mr. Samarghachian has practiced Workers' Compensation law for over twenty-five years. He drew on his extensive experience and knowledge to demonstrate to the insurance company that our client's catastrophic injuries occurred while she was in the course and scope of her job as a nanny, making her eligible for Workers' Compensation benefits.
Harry marshalled all of the experts necessary to prove to the insurance company, not only their responsibility for all of our client's past and future needs, but to do so in a manner to ensure that she will receive optimal care and financial support for the rest of her life. The insurance company agreed to settle with Mr. Samarghachian for the sum of $11,300,000, and additionally agreed to pay for all past medical care and attention to date.
