VerdictSearch recently released its list of the Winningest California Law Firms for 2012, with the law firm of Carpenter, Zuckerman & Rowley, LLP being named as the number one Winningest Law Firm. With a total of eight victories and $114,542,579 recovered in damages, the law firm ranked highest in both categories throughout the year.
In August, Attorney Nicholas Rowley found $38.6 million in compensation for the victim of a hotel fall accident in Newport Beach. The man had fallen from a balcony and suffered a traumatic brain injury that led to a three-week coma and oncoming dementia.
The firm’s largest verdict of the year resulted in $74,225,000 for a child suffering from cerebral palsy due to a birth injury at a San Luis Obispo hospital. By proving that the doctor and staff had improperly responded to the mother’s labor and did not deliver the child properly, the case resulted in one of the largest ever medical malpractice verdicts in California to help the parents properly support the child throughout her life.
On April 20, Attorney Candice Klein won $282,000 for a Food 4 Less slip-and-fall victim caused by a juice spill at the supermarket in Moreno Valley. Another verdict, won by Attorney Sark Ohanian, resulted in $90,000 for the victim of a Venice Beach paddleboard assault that involved a man being attacked with an oar while swimming in the ocean. In February, the firm obtained a $1 million judgment for a young mother who suffered soft tissue injuries in an Ontario intersection accident that have endured for years.
