Verdicts and Settlements

Dinkleman v. State of California - $12.5 Million Settlement - Los Angeles/San Bernardino

April 2004

Gary A. Dordick and his colleagues obtained a $12.5 million settlement representing numerous family members in a single-vehicle crash that occurred on Interstate15.

The driver of the motor home drifted off the roadway and struck a concrete culvert causing extensive damage to the vehicle, severe injuries to the occupants and a wrongful 
death. Mr. Dordick claimed that the road conditions on the desert highway were unsafe and the State of California Caltrans was aware that many vehicles drift off this section 
of Interstate 15 due to its proximity to Las Vegas and overtired motorists. Mr. Dordick further alleged that since the State of California was aware that vehicles were leaving 
the roadway, they should not have constructed a concrete culvert adjacent to the edge of the roadway.

After a monthlong trial, immediately before the jury began deliberations, the State of California paid the plaintiffs' settlement demand in the amount of $12.5 million dollars.
