Case Results

The Musleh Law Firm is proud of the consistent results we achieve for our clients. Below is a sample list of some of our firm's verdicts and settlements. Often, a recovery on behalf of a client is restricted by the available insurance policy limits. For example, a $300,000.00 settlement for a wrongful death may represent the recovery of every available dollar of insurance money. Additional factors affecting settlement can include a reduced recovery when it is very difficult (or nearly impossible) to prove fault on the part of the defendant. Therefore, sometimes a $200,000.00 settlement in a difficult liability matter can be tougher to achieve than a $2 million dollar settlement in a clear-cut accident with substantial available insurance. The cases below represent less than 5% of the settlements and verdicts we have achieved on behalf of our clients. Also, the figures below in work accident settlements do not include the value of all of the past medical expenses and wages we have may obtained on behalf of the injured worker.
