On March 25, 2016, in Denver District Court, Mr. Bendinelli and his team won a landmark jury verdict. This 67-year old client was hurt on the job while working at DIA, involving a Delta-owned motorized baggage transportation vehicle. The defendant disputed the extent of our client’s injuries as well as the ongoing need for future medical treatment. The final offer before trial of $85,000 was rejected by Mr. Bendinelli and his client. Mr. Bendinelli tried this case to a jury resulting in a judgment of $2.1 Million.
FINAL OFFER BEFORE TRIAL: $85,000
JURY VERDICT/FINAL JUDGEMENT: $2.1 Million
Just two weeks later, in Adams County District Court, Mr. Bendinelli tried another case before a jury. Here, his client suffered injuries from a car accident. The defendant hired a doctor to testify that our client was not that badly injured. They initially offered $70,000, then $250,000 on the Friday before trial. After a long trial, the jury returned a verdict which resulted in a $1.4 Million judgment.
FINAL OFFER BEFORE TRIAL: $70,000 initially/$250,000 Friday before trial

Mr. Bendinelli was again invited to be a featured speaker by the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association.
