Tort Litigation

We have handled a variety of tort claims for both plaintiffs and defendants, including cases that relate to real property, such as trespass, nuisance and negligence. For example, a recent case against a prominent real estate developer and highly reputable downtown firm resulted in a jury verdict of $1,400,000 for our client. Recently, in an inverse condemnation case, we obtained a verdict of approximately $5.6 million, affirmed on appeal.

The firm also handles tort of a personal nature: e.g. defamation, assault, battery, false imprisonment, and infliction of emotional distress both negligent and intentional. The firm recently obtained a verdict of $2,250,000 against the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department (including three detectives and others) for conspiracy to inflict and intentional infliction of emotion distress.

If you or your company has been intentionally or negligently harmed, we are prepared to prosecute your case to a successful conclusion. Although our record of six- and seven-figure verdicts speaks for itself, we will be happy to provide a free consultation and evaluation of your claim. Similarly, if your company is being sued for tortuous conduct, Haney & Shah can represent you with large-firm service at small-firm prices.

  • In Landsberg v. Mitchel, we represented a talented singer-dancer for personal injuries suffered when a departing motorist backed into her. The defendant denied liability and damages. Medical costs were approximately $13K, and we obtained a verdict in the amount of $190,000 (less 10% for contributory negligence).

  • We represented a client whose husband was allegedly kidnapped by his family to obtain a large inheritance that would have otherwise gone to our client. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department was sued for aiding and abetting an attorney in hiding and otherwise preventing our client from recovering or even visiting her husband, who suffered from early-onset Alzheimer’s. The defendant’s wife gained possession by being appointed as temporary conservator over our client’s ill husband. Our client spent over $3 million to litigate for her husband’s return. She won the underlying case, then we brought suit against the defendant, LASD, and LASD personnel (including three detectives). We obtained a jury verdict of $2,250,000 for our client.
