    Traumatic Brain Injury Traumatic Brain Injury to Child A three year old child was being carried across the street when she was struck by an oncoming car. The child suffered a serious traumatic brain injury when she hit the ground. Her injuries were so serious she had to be hospitalized for several months. Our firm negotiated a settlement of $2,000,000 by forcing the payment of all of the available insurance from the driver’s automobile insurer ($1,250,000), the entire amount of the homeowners insurance limits available ($500,000), and all of the amounts that the person carrying the little girl was able to recover from the negligent driver ($250,000). We then arranged for another firm to prepare and fund a large Special Needs Trust for the health and welfare of the injured child.
  • $1,800,000
    Heart Condition Disability Our client became disabled by a heart attack. The insurer refused to pay, claiming that our client was still able to perform his occupation.

    A contractor suffered a severe collapse at one of his sites. The claim was submitted to the insurer and denied. Mr. Green reviewed all of the facts, researched the law, and brought together the necessary experts to prove that the Contractor’s Builders Risk insurer was responsible for a substantial portion of the loss.

In total, Mr. Green was able to obtain more than $1,700,000 in compensation for his client.

  • $1,000,000

  • $1,000,000
    Traumatic Brain Injury

    Our client suffered a mild Traumatic Brain Injury when heavy object struck her in the head. The responsible party denied all fault and insisted until the very end that our client had not suffered a brain injury and offered nothing to settle the case. Our firm assembled a team of world renowned expert‘s to demonstrate that our client had suffered a mild Traumatic brain injury. The case settled shortly before trial.

  • $985,000
    Traumatic Hand Injury

    Our client was working at a manufacturing plant. While operating a piece of machinery, his glove became caught in the machinery and part of his hand was severely injured. Ordinarily, this type of injury would be restricted to remedies available through Worker’s Compensation. However, through the knowledge, ingenuity, and creativity of our team of attorneys, we were also able to obtain a very substantial civil settlement for our client in addition to the workers comp settlement of his case.

  • $975,000
    Aviation Death Settlement A husband and father of two small children was killed in an aviation accident involving a small aircraft. Our firm represented the widow and two children against the pilot of the aircraft. By hiring experts in aviation (to prove negligence) and economists (to prove damages), and utilizing William Green’s expertise as an instrument-rated pilot, we were able to make a very powerful case and obtain a very favorable settlement that allowed the family to survive financially.
  • $700,000
    Forklift Accident A construction supervisor went to pick up some materials for a construction job. A worker at the yard neglected to set the parking brake on a piece of heavy equipment a few yards away. While the construction supervisor had his back turned, the machine rolled into him, pinning him against the side of his pick-up truck. He suffered several broken ribs, but that was the least of his injuries. Within several weeks of the accident, he had partially lost his sight. By working with medical experts, our firm was able to directly connect the sight loss to the injuries caused by the machine that rolled into our client. The case settled at Mediation without any need for a trial.
  • $700,000
    Valve Transplant - Disability Our client went in to the dentist for a routine procedure. A new dentist had taken over the practice and did not thoroughly review the client’s chart. As a result, the dentist did not see that the client should have been pre-medicated with antibiotics because of a heart murmur. The client got an infection in a valve in his heart and eventually had to have a heart valve transplant. The client was put on blood thinners that made it impossible to work in his prior occupation. The client’s disability insurer denied his claim, stating that he could still perform his occupation. The attorneys at our firm put together an air-tight case and, just before trial was about to begin, the insurer agreed to pay our client the benefits he was entitled to under his policy.
  • $600,000
    Insurance Bad Faith – Destruction of Business Our clients were the owners and operators of a Marine business. The entire business and a great deal of personal property was destroyed by a storm. The clients hired several sets of attorneys in an effort to find the right fit. Eventually, the clients hired our firm and we were able to put together an extremely compelling case. The insurance company realized this and paid our clients for their losses.
  • $500,000
    Insurance Bad Faith – Health Care Insurance Our client had a series of surgeries to repair damaged areas of her body. She submitted the claims to her health care insurer and they denied the claims in their entirety. The client hired an attorney and brought suit against the insurer. The attorney did very little to prosecute the case and the insurer offered nothing to settle. At the client’s request, Delfino Green & Green took over the case from the prior attorney. Our attorneys immediately went to work – gathering the facts, researching the applicable law, retaining the correct experts – and we were able to convince the insurer to pay our client all of the benefits that she was due.
  • $500,000
    Disability – Migraine Headaches Our client was a health care professional who began suffering from frequent, debilitating migraine headaches. The insurer initially denied the claim and the client hired our firm to demonstrate to the insurer that she was totally disabled and qualified for benefits under her disability policy. Our attorneys then went to work assembling the claim, making sure our client was seen by the appropriate medical professionals, and ensuring that the necessary reports were prepared and provided to the insurer. The insurer eventually agreed to pay our client the benefits she was entitled to under her policy.
  • $300,000
    Car Accident In this case, we represented an entire family – two parents and three kids for various injuries. The family was travelling home one evening in their minivan when a drunk driver ran a red light and hit them broadside. The parents suffered relatively minor injuries, but two of the children were seriously injured. The nine-year-old girl suffered internal injuries, all of which healed after a few months. The four-year-old boy suffered a broken arm. The youngest child was uninjured. Here, our team of attorneys was confronted with a driver who claimed that there had been another car that had sideswiped him and pushed him into our clients’ car. Although his insurance company initially believed this story, we immediately performed a detailed accident reconstruction that proved to the insurance company that their client’s story was pure fiction and that he was completely responsible for the injuries and damage to this family. The insurer quickly paid our clients all of the available insurance.
  • $250,000
    Car Accident – Shoulder Injury Our client suffered a shoulder injury in a motor vehicle accident. The other driver had no insurance, so we had to present the case to our client’s insurer under the Uninsured Motorist Coverage. Despite the fact that our client had no loss of income from the injury and had not had surgery, we were able to demonstrate to the insurer that he would some day need surgery and that the entirety of the $250,000 policy limit should be paid to our client.
  • $250,000
    Car vs. Pedestrian – Broken Ankle A woman was crossing the street in a crosswalk when a pick-up truck hit her. The truck was travelling slowly, so the only injury was a broken ankle. Without ever filing suit in court, our firm was able to put together a detailed and extremely well-documented demand package that convinced the negligent driver’s insurance company to pay our client every dollar of insurance available.
  • $200,000
    Sexual Assault Our client was sexually assaulted. Despite the fact that there were no witnesses, we were able to convince the defendant and the insurer that the assault did, in fact, take place, and that our client was entitled to compensation. This was a case other attorneys would not take on because of the tremendous difficulty proving the case. However, our attorneys believed in our client and felt we could put the case together in a very compelling way.
