We represent clients in personal injury and medical malpractice cases. For this tragic case, we needed to provide solutions that can assure great medical care, and the ability to manage this amount of income. Manny Valdez was amazingly great in accommodating them so that they would have enough income presently and in future years. Regardless of the amount of the Structured Settlement, Manny Valdez and Manuel Valdez Sr., from The Valdez Team at Ringler, will both put the same amount of effort and answer every single question. They will go to the client’s house and explain all the terms, conditions and what they can anticipate. Even if the family is not ready to move forward with a Structured Settlement they’re still available to explain, and they’ll explain it honestly.
The case involved a plaintiff by the name of Toby Morin. Toby had been a paraplegic since the age of 7, and had been used to using wheelchairs for his entire life. Unfortunately, when he got to his mid-thirties, he was using a manual wheelchair and it had malfunctioned, breaking right under him. It turned out that there was a problem with the design of the wheelchair, as well as how it was being maintained by the maintenance company. Toby’s injuries were significant, leading to nerve damage, spasms, mental health issues, and several other. After the defense took the position that Toby was not really injured and nothing was really wrong with the product, Jeremy & his team immediately decided to take the case to trial.
At the end of the day, the jury did not see the case how the defendants did & they came back with a verdict of just under $10 Million. Before the trial, Toby had limited resources. After seeing what the jury was awarding Toby, Jeremy quickly realized and understood that this money needed to last him for the rest of his life.
From working with the Mannys over the years, Jeremy knew that they could help Toby. Jeremy explains that “Manny had an attention to detail that everyone appreciated. He seemed to know what Toby would need before everyone else did. He answered every question that we could throw at him”, making Jeremy feel confident that Toby was going to be taken care of.
While working on a case that involved the death of a family member and a serious personal injury to another family member, the case resolved during the trial for 13,000 million dollars. We are very committed to making sure that the people we represent have all of the information they need and that they live the best quality of life going forward. We’ve worked with the Mannys from The Valdez Team at Ringler on many occasions in the past because they are like us; they’re honest, hard-working, dedicated to what they do, and they want to make sure people have information to make proper choices on how Structured Settlements work. They spend a lot of time with the family members, providing multiple options in order to make sure their needs are fully met. I usually don’t endorse other professionals unless I truly believe in the quality of work that they do, but in the case of Manuel Valdez Sr. & Manny Valdez Jr. I’m happy to do that.
While working on an injury case that involved MediCal, MediCare, and VA benefits I knew that we had to get a Structured Settlement and also a Special Needs Trust to help preserve the benefits and to maximize the recovery. I contacted Manny Valdez and Manuel Valdez Sr. at Ringler; both were very patient with me and the client, instructing and making sure we had all of the information necessary to understand everything. They made the process of using a Structured Settlement very easy.
I’ve been practicing for about 30 years in San Diego, California, specializing in Medical Malpractice and Elder Abuse. For one of the clients I represented, the The Mannys helped select the best life care plan to figure out the best benefits for the course of a lifetime, and the best way to provide those benefits. In addition, they understand about diversifying and the benefits of Structured Attorney Fees. I’ve recommended The Valdez Team at Ringler, and I will continue to recommend and use them again because I was very satisfied with their performance.
