Glenn Guenard of Guenard & Bozarth llp obtained a $2,962,903 jury verdict in the Sacramento County Superior Court for plaintiff David Schoonover, who suffered head and neck injuries and fractures in a head-on accident on Roseville Road in Roseville on July 22, 2012. According to court documents Schoonover’s vehicle was on Roseville Road when another vehicle driven by a 17 year old driver crossed the center line and hit him head-on.

The Sacramento County jury heard the case over seven days and returned a verdict in Schoonover’s favor. The jury awarded Schoonover $2,962,903 for damages including medical expenses, treatment costs and pain and suffering. Glenn Guenard, Senior Attorney with Guenard & Bozarth llp personal injury law firm, said Schoonover was transported by ambulance to Sutter Roseville emergency room for treatment immediately after the crash and underwent open surgical reduction on both knee and heel fractures. In addition, he was forced to take six months off from work and was eventually released to a sedentary work. Schoonover’s movement was limited due to the use of crutches for 1.5 years and he returned to work full time in January 2015.

Attorney Guenard said the case was a challenging one because USAA Insurance Company refused to settle. The final offer from USAA was $100,000, which is when we decided to take the case to trial, Guenard said. “USAA is notorious for not paying fair value on these types of cases. They act in this manner because they are a big insurance company with seasoned and excellent defense attorneys. They know that of the thousands of cases that are filed, very few will go to trial. They have no problem taking that risk.”

“It takes a personal injury law firm with seasoned attorneys and the willingness, resources and conviction to go after insurance companies, remain persistent and win these types of cases”, Guenard said. “The jury was very attentive and fair. The jury found our client to be reliable and likeable. In the end, justice was served.”

Never in my life did I think I would recommend an attorney. Somehow God sent this angel of an attorney to assist me in my personal injury lawsuit. I was told by lawyers in Bakersfield that my lawsuit was frivolous because there was money in it.

I live in Elk Grove where we don’t always have a lot of choices. Lawyers are one area where we have few good choices. I wanted to work with a local law firm after my motorcycle accident, and I chose Glenn Guenard and Ross Bozarth.
