Personal injury attorney, Daniel Rodriguez, along with attorneys Chantal Trujillo and Danay Gonzalez, obtained a $70,578,289 million verdict, the highest personal injury verdict in Kern County history.

A mother with her two children were driving in an SUV when a big rig ran a red light and slammed into her car. The mother and son suffered multiple injuries, while the other child has since suffered from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder from witnessing the accident.

While the truck driver initially said that the mother ran the red light, Rodriguez & Associates was able to obtain footage from a dash camera on a bus that proved the truck driver wrong. In addition, the big rig driver was driving on a suspended license and had 14 prior crashes.

About the case and verdict, Rodriguez said, “It was so satisfying to feel validated.”
