Harmon v. Hughes
Verdict against Chiropractors and Clinic for Failure to Refer for Brain Injury
Mr. Harmon worked as a commercial oven hood cleaner. While at work, he fell and struck his head, losing consciousness briefly. With headaches and neck pain, he began treatment with a chiropractor. He told the chiropractors about his fall, head injury, and loss of consciousness.
Mr. Harmon continued treatment with his chiropractors for another 6 months. During this treatment, he continued to attempt to work, but slowly declined physically and mentally to the point where he became totally disabled. Despite clear head trauma with loss of consciousness, a deteriorating neurological condition, and repeated requests to be referred to a specialist, the chiropractors chose not to refer him for diagnostic imaging (MRI) or to a medical doctor.
The jury returned a verdict and found damages of $6,291,379.64.
Six months after his injury, Mr. Harmon finally underwent an MRI at the Department of Labor and Industries request. The MRI revealed that a large brain bleed (subdural hematoma) was the cause of his ongoing headaches, blackouts, double vision, cognitive deterioration, bladder control problems, balance issues, leg weakness, and sleep disturbance. He underwent two craniotomy brain surgeries. As a result of the delayed diagnosis and treatment, Mr. Harmon suffered serious and permanent brain injury.
Three years of litigation preceded trial during which Mr. Harmon offered to settle within the insurance policy limits.
The chiropractors insurance carrier was unwilling to pay the $2M policy limits that they had purchased to cover them and their clinic for malpractice. This made a trial necessary. The jury returned a verdict and found damages of $6,291,379.64.

Bowker v. Coleman
Verdict for Injuries from Rollover Collision
Liz Quick obtained a verdict of $265,000 against a driver for causing our client's spine injury when he chose to drive 50 to 80 mph in a 25 mph zone in the dark on a hilly road. When our client was unable to assess the defendant's speed, due to darkness and dips in the road, he pulled out in front of the defendant, resulting in a T-bone double rollover collision.
The jury assessed 20 percent fault to our client for failure to yield the right of way and 80 percent fault to the defendant, reducing the verdict to $212,000. Our client lives with daily pain from damage to a tiny joint called the sacroiliac (SI) joint. Because this joint is visible on x-ray or MRI, the defense initially felt they could deny our client's injury was real.
