A 52 year old man and his 36 year old wife both sustained serious injuries when the vehicle in which they were in was struck by a tire which fell out of a vehicle in front of them on the freeway causing their vehicle to lose control and crash into a cement barrier. The couple had initially retained another attorney who was recommending that they settle the claims for $100,000 despite the fact that the wife had undergone knee surgery and back surgery had been recommended for the client. Russell & Lazarus substituted into the case after the lawsuit was resolved and six months later ended up resolving the claims at a settlement conference for $991,000.
