Zero Dollar Offer from Suzuki Motor Corp Ends In $8 Million Verdict in Brake Failure Case

Animation Assists in Portraying Damages in Hard Fought Case

Attorney Gabe Houston of Houston Law of California and The Simon Law Group teamed up to represent a man who had just bought a new Suzuki motorcycle when only 10 days after the purchase, the Plaintiff’s brakes failed, causing him to crash into another vehicle. This resulted in femur and patella fractures, among other injuries. Suzuki continued to sell their bike for years despite knowledge of the flawed manufacturing in their motorcycles, Attorney Feher reached out to DK Global to create a animation that visualized the Plaintiff's injuries and showcased the knee surgery endured.

Recapping Damages and Surgical Rehabilitation Needed

The 3D animation begins with a character modeled after the Plaintiff’s likeness. The camera then depicts the injuries sustained in 3D, including a gruesome femur injury, a patella fracture, and a lisfranc and tarsal navicular fracture in their foot.

A surgical presentation visualizes the corrective hardware coming into place as the camera focuses on each site where surgical intervention and hardware was needed. Text and labels state the details of the surgery with the necessary hardware and conclude with a 3D animation of a total knee replacement.

With the visuals in hand, Houston & Feher were able to obtain an 8-million-dollar verdict on behalf of their client.

In 2018, Gabe Houston returned to practice solo to stay focused on helping injured victims of catastrophic personal injury, defective products, and dangerous premises. Gabe is a long-time member of the Board of Directors for the Orange County Trial Lawyers Association (OCTLA) and was recently elected to the Executive Committee where he currently serves as Parliamentarian.

Tom Feher has been the lead trial attorney for dozens of cases with the firm obtaining millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements. He has also assisted with nearly a hundred trials, taking key depositions of defendants and experts and preparing witnesses.
