A Record of Success
A Proven Track Record of Obtaining Favorable Resolutions for Our Clients
No matter the size of the case, we will fight for you to obtain a just outcome. Our reputation for being aggressive and unafraid of litigation and trial has helped us secure settlements and verdicts for our clients far exceeding the initial offers. The Schneider Injury Law difference is that we do not work up cases with settlement in mind; instead, we work up every case for trial to prove we are serious about getting full recovery in our cases. And that formula has worked, as demonstrated by our results. Just since 2018, Schneider Injury Law has obtained more than $30 million in compensation for our clients.
$5,500,336 Jury Verdict, Brain Injury Premises Liability + $1.05M Attorney's Fee Award: Laguerre v. Cajun Contractors (DeKalb County) In a case against a construction company where a 8 feet long metal pipe fell from a hotel rooftop 60 feet above the street and hit our client in the head, causing him to suffer a permanent traumatic brain injury, a jury awarded $5,500,336.00 against the construction company. A big wrinkle in the case was that our client was not diagnosed with a concussion and mild traumatic brain injury until more than 3 years after the incident. Throughout the entirety of the case, the construction company denied that they were at fault and blamed the hotel for the lack of safety precautions on the job site. The jury disagreed and assigned 100% fault to the construction company. The jury awarded $5,000,000 in compensatory damages and $500,336 in punitive damages. The Court then awarded $1.05 million in attorney's fees because of the "outstanding job" we had done in representing our client at trial. After losing an appeal to the Court of Appeals, the defense paid the full judgment plus interest. Click Here for the Daily Report Article.
