Verdicts and Settlements

Rodriguez v. City of Los Angeles - $15 Million Settlement - California Supreme Court

February 2015

Angela Rodriguez was 11 years old when she was struck by a car due to a dangerous and unsafe intersection in Los Angeles, California. Her sister, Emely Aleman, was killed in the accident. Despite notice of the dangers of the intersection, the City of Los Angeles refused to offer any amount to resolve Ms. Rodriguez's claim.

The trial court threw Angela's case out of court, finding that the City of Los Angeles had full government design immunity. Mr. Dordick reversed the trial court decision in the California Court of Appeals, then fought the case to the California Supreme Court before obtaining a $15 Million settlement that will take care of Angela's medical needs for the rest of her life.
