In 2017, Matt has helped to obtain three notable verdicts for personal injury victims: $8 million for a woman gravely injured when a driver who had been drinking crashed into her car; $1.2 million for a car accident victim to whom the insurance company offered nothing after he sustained permanent injuries to his spine; and $900,000 for a man only initially offered $40,000 for permanent injuries he sustained in a crash.
