Following his 2017 OC ABOTA Trial Lawyer of the Year award, Thomas Wianecki receives Plaintiff verdict for Lamborghini owner with help from Michelle Prescott.
Wesierski & Zurek LLP represented the plaintiff, the owner of a 2006 Lamborghini. After getting into an accident in August 2014, our client had his car towed to a “high end” repair facility for the needed repairs. Plaintiff’s insurance company paid $44,500 for these repairs in September 2014. Sixteen months passed and little to no work was done. Our client demanded return of the vehicle after 1 year. He was told the car could not be located. He went to the police to file a report, but was told this was a civil matter. We then filed a complaint on plaintiff’s behalf. After filing the lawsuit, the car was located and belatedly released. Our client picked up the car with little repair done. The Plaintiff was lied to and treated with disrespect during the whole ordeal by the facility. Following deliberation, the jury awarded $227,431.85 in damages, plus punitives to the plaintiff. Thomas Wianecki and Michelle Prescott were the trial attorneys. Congratulations!
