Los Angeles Attorneys Fight for Girl Struck By Vehicle Due to City Negligence
City Pays 9.5 Million-Dollar Settlement

Attorneys Court Purdy and Bill Paoli took advantage of our services in their monumental case, Larsen vs. The City of Los Angeles, in which a teenage girl was killed in a hit and run while crossing an unsafe beachside street. DK Global takes pride in being Multi-Media Innovators. While we specialize in animations and 3D illustrations, our goal is to enable all facets of technology and media to thrive in the courtroom. One way we do this is by providing a Day in the Life Documentary service for cases that may need something a little different than a reconstructive animation or illustration.

In 2015, the beach city of Playa Del Rey was shaken by the death of 16-year-old Naomi Larsen, who was hit by a taxi after leaving a coastal bonfire. The injuries she sustained were terminal and led to her untimely death a few weeks later. Her parents, in their daughter’s memory, hired Attorneys Paoli and Purdy to seek justice for their daughter’s lost life. As the victim’s parents said, this was a “foreseeable tragedy” and the mini-documentary commissioned by Paoli & Purdy, LLP was created to highlight this fact. Utilizing surveillance enhancement, on-scene photography, custom graphics, areal drone views and our teams’ editing skills, we were able to piece together a poignant presentation. The goal was to outline the liability of the Defendant as the city negligently ignored the need for a crosswalk. Footage of other beachgoers was also included, illustrating that this case could have easily happened to anyone amongst the crowd of pedestrians crossing the unsafe street. Attorneys Purdy and Paoli used this presentation seamlessly within their litigation to counter the City of L.A.’s stance that they were not liable for Larsen’s death. With DK Global’s graphics in hand, they successfully championed for their client, obtaining a $9.5 million legal settlement.

This case not only settled with a significant cost to the city but also a heightened sense of responsibility for the residents of Playa Del Rey.  The City of Los Angeles immediately began its Vision Zero policy, which implemented many new traffic regulations and lane reductions to eliminate all traffic deaths by 2025. This case is one of many high-profile cases Paoli & Purdy, LLP has handled in Orange County, California. The firm, recognized as one of the nation’s preeminent law firms, represents Plaintiffs in personal injury matters, offering their vast experience and exclusive resources to ensure that each client receives the individualized attention they deserve.
