Attorneys Carl Amala and Jamie Usera Successfully Negotiate Settlement in Highly Disputed Wrongful Death Case

The trial team of Carl Amala and Jamie Usera successfully negotiated a highly disputed wrongful death case on behalf of the Estate of Karen Greenstein against the State of Oregon and others. Trial was scheduled to begin on August 13, 2019 in Medford. The case settled against the State of Oregon for $500,000, a store that sold beer to the drunk driver for $500,000, and $100,000 from the drunk driver's insurance company. (The limit of insurance coverage.) Mrs. Greenstein, a highly acclaimed 911 operator, was killed in a head-on wrong-way I-5 automobile accident on March 27, 2014 when a drunk driver slammed into her vehicle, literally cutting it in half. The drunk driver had a blood alcohol level of .24%, three times Oregon's legal limit.

Focus on healing, not your finances

A catastrophic injury impacts your life the moment it occurs. Whether it's a broken back, a head injury or other traumatic injury, you'll know it right away. You may have to be rushed into emergency surgery or realize that you can't feel parts of your body when you awaken after a crash.

What should you expect from your attorney after an injury?

Catastrophic injuries are so serious that the likelihood of your life ever being the same is extremely low. For some, the impact of those injuries leaves them disabled and unable to do the things they loved. Others struggle with brain injuries, memory loss, problems with sight or issues with hearing.

Wrongful-death lawsuit filed for father's death

In a slightly unusual case, a lawsuit has been filed over the violent death of a 33-year-old man who was killed at a house party in Lynnfield. The death occurred in an incident that happened in 2016 at a mansion that had been widely advertised for rent on AirBnB and other places.
