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.
"The Mannys offer sort of a unique opportunity for clients where Spanish is their primary language, they have a remarkable connection with the clients, they're able to communicate directly with the clients in a language they're comfortable with. And certainly for me in any case I have where there's a Structured Settlement being considered and there's someone who is bilingual, The Mannys are the perfect choice for those cases"
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.
I've used Manuel Sr. and his son Manny Valdez for literally a couple of dozen cases both in the construction area as well as major personal injury actions. There are plenty of companies around, but we go to them because of their commitment to our clients, their commitment, to us, their hands-on approach, and frankly more than anything the level of trustworthiness that we have with them. The people that they work with are very reputable as well, and when you are dealing with annuities over a long period of time you want to be working with established companies and that's who they work with. They always want to interact with my clients, on one particular instance they literally flew out to Las Vegas on a Nevada death case and spend half a day with the family, a family whose not sophisticated financially and sat down with them walk them through all of the details of the program, all of the services that they would provide and put them on a place where they felt really understood and had a comfort level going forward with them. I think they are the best out there their skill level, their knowledge level is far superior to the other people, so they are literally the go-to guys. Learn more at https://valdezteam.com/spotlight
