EXAMPLES Of Jay's Cases

Woman Attacked By An Off-leash Dog.

Our client sustained serious injuries, including a knee surgery. The dog owner’s insurance company denied liability because it claimed that there was an exclusion for “vicious dogs.” After carefully examining the policy, I noted that there was in fact no coverage for certain dogs, including “Rottweilers” or “Pit Bulls” or “Pit Bull mixes.” The defendant’s dog was a Rottweilers but not a purebred. As the insurance policy specifically excluded both “Pit Bulls” and “Pit Bull mixes” on the one hand, but only “Rottweilers” on the other, I argued that there would have to be coverage for a Rottweilers mix. The insurance company eventually agreed and paid our client $180,000.00.

Pregnant Woman Who Was Injured In A Motor Vehicle Accident.
Following the accident, the woman gave birth to a child. I argued that the child had some complications resulting from the motor vehicle accident. The insurance company initially refused to make any settlement offers for the child, claiming that the child had no claim because she was not born at the time of the accident. We filed a lawsuit and eventually negotiated a settlement which will provide the child more than $660,000.00 over her lifetime.
Woman Shot After A House Party At Which Alcohol Was Served To Minors.
At the conclusion of the party, there was a fight in the street outside of the home. One of the partygoers pulled out a gun and shot at others. Our client was an innocent bystander who became paralyzed from the waist down by a stray bullet. I sued the homeowner for failing to supervise the party. The homeowner was extremely belligerent and refused to provide any insurance information. We had a court hearing at which I asked the judge to hold the homeowner in contempt. The homeowner eventually provided the information and was represented by skilled lawyers at a large downtown firm. The homeowner’s lawyers first claimed that there was no coverage as our client’s injuries were sustained off the premises and that the homeowner was not responsible for their actions. I continued with the lawsuit and eventually recovered the entire policy limits from the insurance company.
