HPI Trial Lawyer of the Year 2018
Each year, the attorneys at Harris Personal Injury Lawyers review, rate, and present the Trial Lawyer of the Year Award to the attorney(s) who litigated a significant case for the firm that year. The award is highly competitive and is presented at our 2018 Annual Gala in December. This year, Josh Poulsen was awarded Trial Lawyer of 2018 by his peers.
Mr. Poulsen received this award for his excellent work on the Cunningham v. Haas trial in San Diego. In what most may consider to be a “small case,” Mr. Poulsen held the Defendant and the insurance company responsible for all the damages suffered by our client, proving that HPI will always stand by our clients and take the case all the way to trial if necessary, no matter how big or small the case may seem.
In that case, the Defendant rear-ended our client and his family while they were out for a Sunday drive in La Jolla, California. Our client suffered neck and back injuries, but only received conservative treatment with four different chiropractic offices. The insurance company denied liability and responsibility throughout the litigation process, and even refused to pay the meager $5,730.95 in medical bills our client had incurred as a result of the collision.
After a hard-fought trial, a San Diego Jury came back with a verdict of $20,686.95, which compensated our client fully for all of his past medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and inconvenience associated with this collision. Further, the insurance company was ordered to pay over $44,000.00 to reimburse our client for all his damages and the costs associated with bringing this “small” case to trial.
Congratulations to Mr. Poulsen for achieving justice for our client against the insurance company.
