Sergio Vargas v. Paramount Scaffold, Inc.
Area of Law: Personal Injury
State Filed: California
Settlement: Jury Verdict and Judgment
Settlement Amount: 3.79 million
Mr. Vargas was a construction worker who sued a scaffolding company after the company’s truck made a sharp right turn, ran over a construction zone cone, and crushed Mr. Vargas’ ankle. As a result, he developed chronic regional pain syndrome, a painful lifetime condition that permanently disabled him from physically-demanding work. The defense offered $75,000 to settle, despite Mr. Vargas’ medical bills totaling over $250,000. The Vargas family contacted Randolph & Associates to help. The case went to trial, and Randolph & Associates won a nearly $4 million verdict for Mr. Vargas. Now, despite his disability, he can provide for his wife and children, and can cover his medical costs for the rest of his life.
