• Ekbatani v. Caltrans, Et Al.

    $35,000,000

    On July 14, 2012, Nick Ekbatani – then 25 years old and a recent offensive lineman on the UCLA football team -- was riding his motorcycle northbound on Pacific Coast Highway, in Redondo Beach, at the posted speed limit of 35 mph. A United Taxi driver was traveling southbound on Pacific Coast Highway, and was making a left turn toward eastbound Diamond Street. The collision occurred when the United Taxi driver “cut the corner” while attempting his left turn, and collided with Mr. Ekbatani. The taxi driver stated that he never saw or heard the motorcycle prior to impact. It is undisputed that Nick Ekbatani did not bear fault in causing the collision.

    As a result of the crash Mr. Ekbatani suffered injuries including the traumatic amputation of his lower left leg. He underwent 13 surgeries to his left leg since the incident, and he faces additional surgeries in the future.

    A thorough investigation by Mardirossian & Associates disclosed that the roadway design at this intersection made it difficult for the left turning driver and an oncoming motorcyclist to see one another during a critical phase of the sequence of events. Mardirossian & Associates thus brought Caltrans into the lawsuit as a defendant, upon a theory of a dangerous roadway design. After Mardirossian & Associates presented extensive evidence and expert testimony at trial the jury agreed, finding Caltrans to bear the predominant fault in causing the collision and Mr. Ekbatani’s resulting injuries.

    By establishing liability on behalf of both United Taxi and Caltrans, Mardirossian & Associates was able to recover for Mr. Ekbatani $35 million – the largest verdict for a motorcycle case in California history.

  • Saakyan v. Modern Auto

    $26,900,000

    In June, 1992, 17 year old Oganes Saakyan picked up his sister’s Honda at Modern Auto, which had just installed unsafely large wheels and tires on the vehicle. Upon entering the freeway, the Honda lost control and rolled down an embankment rendering Oganes Saakyan a paraplegic. The first trial resulted in jury verdict for the defense – after which Garo Mardirossian appealed and obtained a reversal. The second trial resulted in jury verdict for plaintiff, and judgment in the amount of $26,900,000. As this case involved two trials and an appeal, Garo Mardirossian spent 11 years obtaining compensation for the injuries suffered by Oganes Saakyan.

  • Pannu v. Land Rover North America

    $25,281,078

    On December 14, 2003, Sukh Pannu, a world class field hockey star from Hong Kong, was driving his 1998 Land Rover Discovery I on the westbound 118 Freeway when a westbound car encroached into his lane and made an impact with the driver side of his vehicle. As a result, Mr. Pannu was forced to make an evasive maneuver which caused the Land Rover to go out of control and roll 2 ½ times on the freeway, causing Mr. Pannu spinal injuries that rendered him a partial quadriplegic. At trial, as Mr. Pannu’s chief trial attorney, Garo Mardirossian proved that the Land Rover Discovery I is defective in both its stability and roof design, resulting in a judgment in favor of Sukh Pannu. Land Rover appealed the verdict. The Court of Appeal affirmed the judgment in favor of Mr. Pannu in a published opinion which is often cited by attorneys who represent injured parties.

  • Dole v. Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department

    $24,850,000

    The Dole family was gathered for a bridal shower attended by 35 relatives at their home in a quiet area of Cerritos. When someone phoned the police to falsely report that men were fighting with knives outside the Dole home, Sheriff’s Deputies wearing riot gear descended on the Dole residence. Although no one was engaging in any hostile activity outside the house, the Sheriff’s Deputies swarmed into the house, severely beat those inside and dragged unresisting men, women and children outside to the front lawn to be handcuffed. Many Dole family members were taken to jail. Unknown to Sheriff’s Deputies, these events were videotaped by a private citizen. Although criminal charges were brought against members of the Dole family, not a single conviction was obtained. Garo Mardirossian was the chief trial attorney in the civil rights action on behalf of the Dole family. After jury verdict in favor of plaintiffs, judgment was entered in the amount of $24,850,000 – the largest judgment ever obtained and collected against the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

  • Gozukara v. Ford Motor Company, et al.

    $14,900,000

    This historic case was the first verdict in American history where a jury in Barstow, after a four-month trial, found the Ford Explorer to be defective in rollover propensity. On May 24, 1997, the Gozukara family was driving in their 1994 Ford Explorer on the I-15 freeway to Las Vegas. When Mr. Gozukara braked and swerved to avoid an encroaching vehicle, the Ford Explorer vibrated violently causing loss of control before the Explorer rolled over multiple times. Mrs. Gozukara was rendered quadriplegic and other members of the family suffered severe injuries. Garo Mardirossian, as chief trial attorney for plaintiffs, established that the Ford Explorer was defectively designed.

    $7,400,000

    A 39-year-old legal secretary in the Union Square Building suffered injuries while riding an elevator. The elevator dropped from the thirty-first floor and came to an abrupt halt on the 8th floor. Ms. Palmer suffered fractures including a broken elbow, left leg, post-traumatic stress disorder, and mild traumatic closed head injury. On Ms. Palmer’s behalf, Garo Mardirossian brought suit against the building owner, the building management company, and the elevator company. Defendants denied liability contending she fell because she was wearing high heels and that the accident was an unforeseeable “act of God.” The defense offer of settlement at the start of trial was $1,450,000. Plaintiff demanded $1,500,000. At trial, the jury awarded Ms. Palmer $7,400,000.

  • Hakimian v. Gabbai

    $6,650,000

    On January 22, 1996, the stove in Mr. Hakimian’s apartment on Beverly Boulevard exploded, causing him to suffer second and third degree burns over 30% of his body, as well as post traumatic stress disorder. Prior to the incident Mr. Hakimian was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and often engaged in bizarre behavior. The Los Angeles Fire Department arson squad found no evidence of fire in the apartment. Before trial the defense offered a total of $100,000 in settlement. At trial, Garo Mardirossian proved that the initial investigation was not adequate, that the gas jets of the stove were misaligned and malfunctioning, and that Mr. Hakimian’s complaints to the landlord about the stove had been ignored. The jury returned verdict in favor of Mr. Hakimian in the amount of $6,650,000.

  • Zerby v. City of Long Beach, et al.

    $6,510,000

    On December 12, 2010, Douglas Zerby was an unarmed man on the 5300 block of East Ocean Boulevard in Long Beach, seated on an exterior stairway and holding a metal water nozzle. Although Mr. Zerby was intoxicated he had committed no crime, and he was simply seated on the stairway bothering no one. Long Beach Police Officers arrived at the scene, and observed Mr. Zerby for over seven minutes from safe locations. Several officers had close-up observation of Mr. Zerby through riffle scopes. The officers fired six times with a handgun and two times with a shotgun, without identifying themselves to the decedent, without ordering him to drop the object in his hand, and without any verbal warning to make him aware that they were there. An autopsy showed that Mr. Zerby had 12 entry wounds. The jury returned verdict in favor of decedent’s parents, Mark Zerby and Pamela Amici, and the decedent’s son, River Sentell in the sum of $6,510,000. The jury found the City of Long Beach and Long Beach Police Department to be vicariously liable for this use of deadly force by the officers. The city appealed, but the judgment in favor of Plaintiffs was affirmed.

  • Castillo v. Korman Center Enterprises

    $5,800,000

    On a cold December night, 9 year old Quantez Castillo got out of bed and went to the kitchen of his mother’s tenement apartment to get a glass of juice from the refrigerator. His mother had requested numerous times that the landlord fix the apartment heater, and had been repeatedly ignored. On that night, she left the gas burners of the stove turned on to heat the apartment. As Quanez stood adjacent to the refrigerator, the gas flame of the stove set his pajamas on fire causing Quantez to suffer severe burns. The defense offer of settlement at the start of trial was $151,000. On behalf of young Quantez Castillo, Garo Mardirossian obtained a jury verdict against the landlord in the amount of $2,500,000 in compensatory damages and $3,300,000 in punitive damages, for a total verdict of $5,800,000. Garo Mardirossian obtained personal payment of the punitive damages by the landlord.

    $4,600,000

    On August 29, 1994, plaintiffs, two women ages 41 and 45, were walking with their 3 ½ year-old niece, the decedent. An employee of the defendant school district, who was driving a 1967 Mercury Cougar northbound on 4th Street, collided in the intersection with a 1983 Chevrolet Camaro being operated by a 17 year old driver eastbound on Main Street. Upon impact the Cougar veered at high speed onto the sidewalk on the northwest corner of the intersection, striking the three pedestrians. The child died at the scene of the accident. The 41-year old woman suffered injuries to her lower extremities, ultimately requiring the amputation of her right leg. The 45-year old lady sustained soft-tissue injuries and witnessed the injuries to her sister and niece. Mediation was held on July 22, 1997, before Jeffrey Krivis, Esq., resulting in the settlement.

    $3,625,000

    On July 28, 1993, Mr. Lytle, an antitrust lawyer, was playing golf as a guest at Riviera Country Club. As Mr. Lytle was pulling the driver out of his golf bag on the third tee, a bulldozer operator drove up a hill from behind Mr. Lytle and struck him at slow speed. The bulldozer caused a one-quarter inch abrasion to the back of Mr. Lytle’s head, which did not require stitches. Diagnostic testing showed no brain damage. However, Mr. Lytle experienced persistent headaches and cognitive deficits after the incident, forcing him to withdraw from the practice of law. At trial, Garo Mardirossian established that the incident caused Mr. Lytle to suffer mild traumatic brain injury with permanent residual deficits, resulting in a jury verdict in the amount of $3,625,000.00.

  • Thienmanne v. Nissan Motor Corporation

    $3,150,000

    On May 20, 1992, a LAPD patrol car responding to a 911 call ran a stop sign and struck the driver side of a 1992 Nissan Sentra operated by Priaporn Thienmanne, a 16 year old student. The impact caused the driver door of Ms. Thienmanne’s car to open and her car to spin severely counter-clockwise. As the impact forces moved Ms. Thienmanne’s body leftward toward the open door of her vehicle, her shoulder belt engaged Ms. Thienmanne’s neck and head causing her to expire from strangulation. In this action for wrongful death, Garo Mardirossian established that the occupant restraint system of the 1992 Nissan Sentra, which consisted of a motorized shoulder harness and manual lap belt, was defectively designed in a manner which contributed to the death of Ms. Thienmanne. This was the first verdict against Nissan finding its seatbelt design to be defective. The jury awarded total damages in the amount of $3,150,000.

    On August 15, 1999, the Duan family was traveling in a rented 1999 Chevrolet Astro van in Northern California when the van rolled over three times, paralyzing Mr. Duan and causing moderate injuries to the other occupants of the van. In this lawsuit plaintiffs’ trial attorney, Garo Mardirossian, obtained a court order requiring that General Motors release to the public, for the first time, thousands of GM documents concerning roof-crush in rollover accidents. Specifically, the previously undisclosed GM documents, including Malibu I and Malibu II roof-crush testing, became public. After release of these critical product liability documents by GM, this case concluded with a confidential settlement reached after eight days of jury deliberations.

  • Yang v. Toyota Motor Company, et al.

    Confidential Case Value

    On June 22, 2000, Jian Zhong Yang, his wife Yuan Xue Lee, and their daughter Annie Yang, were involved in a multi-vehicle automobile collision on the Golden State Freeway (I-5) in Los Angeles County, California. As a result of the accident, Mr. Yang was rendered a quadriplegic. The Toyota Paseo involved in this case was equipped with an automatic shoulder harness and manual lap belts — a restraint design that received laudatory comments from the government and the automotive industry. However, the defect in this restraint system arose from its design and a failure to warn, because there was an alarmingly high non-usage rate for the ‘passive’ part of the system, leaving ordinary consumers exposed to a risk of severe injury or death. In essence, the design of the automatic shoulder harness provided consumers with a misleading sense of safety and a false sense of security. This case resulted in a substantial confidential settlement.
