Despite the horrendous nature of the crash, the client survived with only a fractured vertebrae and reasonable treatment and bills.

  • $95,000 Dog Bite Case. Client’s dog was attacked by a neighbor dog, killing the client’s pet. In the process, the client was knocked over and hurt.

After suing the agency and conducting discovery, JVM Law secured a settlement in the amount of $96,000 for the child.
