  • $681,606.20 (Underinsured Motorist)
    “Net Underinsured Motorist Arbitration Award. In May 2015 Attorney Kohn, along with attorney Suzanne Skolnick, represented a 60 year old man in an underinsured motorist claim against Truck Insurance Exchange (Farmers Insurance). The claimant was injured in a November, 2010 rear-end collision that occurred while he was in the course and scope of his employment as a school district security officer. He sustained back, neck and shoulder injuries and had undergone 4 ½ years of treatment, including neck and back epidural injections and 2 lumbar radiofrequency ablation procedures by the time the matter reached arbitration. The claim against the underinsured motorist settled for the $15,000 minimal policy limit. After the worker’s compensation case was resolved, the case was mediated unsuccessfully with Farmers offering only $30,000. The case then proceeded to arbitration before retired Judge Herbert Hoffman. Less than one week before the hearing, Farmers increased its offer to $175,000. Judge Hoffman determined total damages in the amount of $681,606.20, which included the following items: past economic damages of $156,606.20; future medical expenses of $75,000; past non-economic damages of $150,000; future non-economic damages of $250,000 and loss of consortium damages for the client’s wife of $50,000. After reduction for the worker’s compensation benefits and the third party recovery, Judge Hoffman’s net award totaled $681,606.20.”

  • $465,000.00 (Woman Injured in Fall)
    “$465,000 Settlement for Woman Injured in Fall An Oceanside woman suffered severe fractures after falling from her home’s second-story window. The 51-year-old plaintiff stepped out of her bedroom window onto a narrow pot shelf in order to reach the outside glass which needed cleaning. The pot shelf was enclosed by a short wrought-iron railing. After cleaning the window, she leaned against the railing as she was climbing back inside. When the railing suddenly swung open like a gate, the woman lost her balance and fell backward onto her garage and then dropped 12 feet to her driveway. The fall resulted in fractures in her knee, shoulder, and face. The housing developer and subcontractor responsible for the iron railing were both named as defendants in the suit. They contended local building codes required the railing to open in order to provide adequate fire escape, and further argued that they could not foresee an individual climbing outside onto the pot shelf as the plaintiff had done. The matter was resolved through mediation.”

  • $1,070,000.00 (Auto Accident)
    “$1,070,000 recovered. In March 2018, Kohn Law Office in association with Skolnick Law Group obtained a $1,070,000 settlement for three young men who were passengers in a motor vehicle accident at an intersection in Del Mar, CA. The defendant made a left turn on a red arrow signal crossing directly into the path of the plaintiff’s vehicle. All three clients suffered major injuries including a fractured femur, a fractured pelvis, lumbar vertebral fractures, and concussion head injuries. The clients individually recovered $435,000.00, $315,000.00, and $320,000.00, which were paid by defendant’s insurer Amica Mutual Insurance.”

  • $1,000,000.00 (Wrongful Death)
    “$1,000,000 Recovery for Wrongful Death of Brother In December 2017, Kohn Law Office in association with Skolnick Law Group obtained a $1,000,000 settlement just weeks before trial for the brother of a 63-year-old disabled man who was struck and killed by defendant’s vehicle when the 89-year-old defendant driver lost control of his truck and drove onto the walkway hitting the man in his wheelchair outside the emergency room entrance at the new Palomar Hospital in Escondido, CA. This settlement was split as follows: $500,000 paid by underlying carrier USAA Insurance Co., $500,000 paid by the umbrella carrier, Scottsdale Insurance Co. This is believed to be the largest wrongful death recovery for a single sibling in San Diego County history.”
