As fifteen year old, Danielle Sampson rode along on a family outing in July of 2012, no one could anticipate how her life was going to be permanently altered. As the family passed through a residential neighborhood, a local gang member fired shots at a homeowner during the commission of a robbery. It was at that moment that a stray bullet pierced the van striking the innocent teenager in the head. Immediately following the shooting Danielle spent several weeks in the hospital, a few more in rehab, and still the teen was left with only the mere ability to blink her eyes.
Nothing can be done to save Danielle from the terrible repercussions of that fateful day in July 2012, however, thanks to Attorney Dan Newlin, her family was awarded a $100 million in damages for injuries that were sustained that fateful day. While the family will likely never recoup the full amount of the damages awarded, due to shooter Tyrone Mosby’s incarceration, the family feels vindicated because the court ruled in their favor. The award includes compensation for medical care, both past and future, pain and suffering for Danielle, as well as coverage for the emotional distress incurred by her entire family.
Dan Newlin, and his team of lawyers, have received Florida’s highest award of being a Super Lawyer Law Firm. Fewer than 5% of the lawyers in Florida, have ever received this level of recognition. Newlin and his team pride themselves on going the extra mile for their clients having recovered millions of dollars for accident victims through their hard work and dedication. Dan Newlin was discussed in this press release as well.
Awful things happen, unfortunately, they can’t be avoided, consequently, it helps to know that attorneys such as Dan Newlin are available to assist the injured to receive the compensation they deserve. Verdicts such as these may not balance everything out, however, they do help compensate individuals who are wrongfully injured and create justice for those damaged by no fault of their own.
