Fighting For You
Kristine Knopp vs. a large San Diego Alarm Company
Kristene Knopp was the perfect employee. Whatever task she was given, she performed diligently and efficiently. One day, as Kristene drove to work, a trucker steered toward her going the opposite direction — but on the same side of the I-15, going the wrong way. He slammed head-on into her, causing her major and life-altering injuries.
Because of Kristene’s determination and courage, she was able to return to work. But her once considerable abilities were greatly limited. The insurance company for the trucker’s employer, an alarm company, refused to adequately compensate Kristene. The corporation’s lawyers argued that if she was healed enough to return to work, her injuries didn’t require substantial compensation. The corporation was backing its driver – even after we discovered the trucker had a history of unconscious episodes.
The San Diego jury was so impressed by our case on behalf of Kristene they awarded a verdict of $1.3 million – more than requested on her behalf. Kristene Knopp is a hero to herself, to me, and to the jury who reviewed her case. Our community is safer because she had the courage to fight for what was rightfully hers.
It can happen to anybody. There are more than 22 million licensed drivers in California alone, and more than 300,000 of them suffer injuries from motor vehicle accidents every year.
