Hearing Loss and Scarring
Earlier Case Results
In 1999 three mechanics that were injured at work recovered a confidential settlement from international farm tractor manufacturer, Massey Ferguson. Mr. Schreyer proved that a defective hydraulic power steering system caused hot hydraulic fluid to spray onto them, causing severe burns, scarring and hearing loss.
In 1998 Mr. Schreyer sued a manufacturer for a defective brake system that caused a lawn tractor to roll out of control when the engine stopped. The failure resulted in the tractor rolling over and fracturing a rider’s leg. The settlement was confidential.
In 1996 Mr. Schreyer obtained the maximum judgment against the state of Maryland for a prison attack that left a young man with a fractured jaw and several missing teeth. The case was appealed by the state, but the appeal was thrown out.
In 1995, in a wrongful death case stemming from a drunk driving incident, Mr. Schreyer forced the insurer to pay its entire policy limits of $500,000 to the family of a young mother. The case was one of the largest ever concluded by his former firm.
In 1994 Mr. Schreyer successfully litigated for the parents of a young child when a treating gynecologist failed to cauterize one of his patient’s fallopian tubes.
In 1993, Mr. Schreyer’s litigation techniques resulted in uncovering hundreds of complaints of unsafe bleachers against a national bleacher manufacturer in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The discovery ultimately led to a confidential settlement of more than a dozen serious injury claims stemming from the collapse of gymnasium bleachers at McDonough High School.
