Sworn Statements Taken in Traumatic Brain Injury Case Handled By Piccuta Law Group
On March 20, 2018 and March 22, 2018, Charles “Tony” Piccuta traveled to Oakland, California for two days of sworn statements. The case involves a client who sustained a traumatic brain injury. The case was filed in Alameda County Superior Court and is entitled Wong v. Wang, Et Al. (Case # HG17854660).
On March 8, 2017, the firm’s client, a sushi chef, was traveling on Interstate 880 South on his way home from work. As traffic came to a halt, he braked. However, the driver behind him failed to do so and crashed into him at 60-65 miles per hour. The defendant driver claims that the firm’s client came to an abrupt stop and swerved into his lane of travel immediately before the impact.
On March 20, 2018, Piccuta defended the deposition of his client. On March 22, 2018, Piccuta examined the driver who caused the collision under oath to learn more about his version of events.
As a result of the crash, the firm’s client sustained serious injuries, including a traumatic brain injury, trauma induced stroke, collapsed lung and fractured ribs. The firm’s client was transported from the scene of the collision to a trauma center where he underwent emergent care and was put on a ventilator and other life-saving support. The firm’s client was eventually stabilized but now has reduced cognitive functioning. He is unable to care for himself, travel to public places unsupervised, operate an automobile, cook, work, or participate in other normal daily living activities.
The firm’s client hired the Piccuta Law Group to represent him because of the firm’s experience in handling serious and complex injury cases.
