Lost Scrap Metal Profits

In Chicago, David Axelrod and Associates saved a local industrial demolition firm by acquiring nearly $1.3 million for it from a chemical plant customer. The demolition company’s dilemma presented a number of industry specific issues. Frequently, in the demolition industry, a demolition firm will be paid the majority of its fee in the form of the scrap material that remains once the demolition is finished. Metal, equipment and various industrial tools can be sold for a substantial profit on the scrap metal market.

Catastrophic Injury

David A. Axelrod & Associates was successful in recovering two settlements on behalf of the family of a disabled child.

On August 27, 2003, the child was a passenger on a school bus that left the roadway, traveled down a steep embankment adjacent to the roadway, and rolled over.  The child, who was twelve years old at the time of the bus crash, suffered permanent brain damage, paraplegia, orthopedic injuries and other multi-system injuries.

Medical Malpractice

David A. Axelrod & Associates was successful in negotiating settlements with a hospital and a pediatric urologist amounting to over $10,000,000 in lifetime payments for a young child for his medical malpractice claim.  The settlement with the hospital was reached during the discovery phase and the settlement with the urologist was reached after the first day of trial.
