A 40-year-old woman was rear-ended by a cement truck as she drove home from work, causing her to suffer a mild traumatic brain injury, undergo five surgeries, and require ongoing medical care and rehabilitation.

$4.55 Million Verdict in Electrocution Death
When a cable technician was electrocuted while working on a power pole, he left behind his wife and two young daughters. David Christensen and his team of 11 experts went to battle with the power company for this family, recovering $4.55 million for their futures.
$2.25 Million Verdict in Falling Concrete Accident
A doctor driving home was struck by falling concrete from a dilapidated freeway overpass, an accident that resulted in chronic pain which demanded pain medication and therefore led to severe colon problems. David Christensen’s team settled the case against the Michigan Department of Transportation for $2.25 million.
$2 Million Verdict in Car Accident
A 30-year-old man was rear-ended, suffering whiplash and an acceleration/deceleration brain injury. Because the speed of the vehicle that caused the damage was about 10 mph, the defense argued that this could not have caused such injuries. Because of David Christensen’s hard work, the jury disagreed and awarded the client $2 million.
$1.2 Million Awarded to Pedestrian TBI Accident
While crossing the street, a disabled man was struck by a car which broke both of his legs and resulted in a mild traumatic brain injury. The defense attempted to argue that his pre-existing mental and emotional disabilities were causing his problems, not a TBI. With the assistance of David Christensen, this client was awarded $1.2 million in damages.
$2 Million in Damages for Head Injury
After suffering a brain injury in an auto accident, a 29-year-old man required over a year of rehabilitation and was only able to return to his heating/air conditioning technician job part-time. He was awarded $2 million by a jury.
$1.6 Million Verdict in Trucking Accident
A 45-year-old truck driver was left with a herniated disc, the need for surgery, and the inability to work when he was rear-ended by a gravel truck. David Christensen’s efforts led to the trucking company paying the client $1.6 million in damages to avoid going to trial.
$1.5 Million Verdict in TBI Caused by Car Accident
A part-time, 35-year-old substitute teacher suffered a mild brain injury in a rear-end auto accident. The case went to trial and the jury awarded the client $1.5 million in damages.

$1.1 Million in Damages for Truck Accident

Seven Figures Awarded for Hard-to-Prove Neurological Condition
A woman who suffered a minor fracture in a car accident developed Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome which can cause intense debilitating pain. This neurological condition can be challenging to prove but David Christensen and his team successfully settled the case for a confidential seven-figure amount.
$550,000 and House Awarded to Victim Left a Paraplegic
After a rollover accident, a 17-year-old girl became wheelchair bound. Her insurance company refused to pay benefits for home modification to cater to her new needs, and she ended up living in a motel room. The jury awarded the client a house and ordered the insurance company to pay for the necessary changes to make the home wheelchair accessible, amounting to a verdict of over $550,000.
$500,000 Verdict in TBI Car Accident Case
A 62-year-old woman suffered a TBI in a car accident, requiring residential care at a head injury clinic. The insurance company disputed her needs and refused to pay the medical bills. David Christensen took this case to trial and the jury ordered the insurance company to pay the bills and attorney fees, a verdict totaling nearly $500,000.
$350,000 Awarded to Car Accident Amputee
After losing her leg in a car accident, a 60-year-old woman found herself with a home that was not wheelchair accessible and an insurance company that was refusing to make it so. David Christensen and his team relentlessly investigated the insurer, ultimately discovering that the insurer was hiding critical documentation proving her case was valid. The insurance company was forced to pay over $350,000 for home modifications.
$300,000 Verdict for Psychiatric Injury Caused by Car Accident
Rear-ended by another car on an expressway on-ramp, a 32-year-old single mother of three suffered a minor whiplash injury but developed PTSD and severe anxiety disorder leading to panic attacks. The jury awarded the woman $300,000 a record verdict in Michigan at that time for a purely psychiatric injury as the result of an auto accident.
