Case Results

    Shamberg, Johnson & Bergman won what is thought to be the largest personal injury verdict in Kansas in a trucking case against Swift Transportation. The $23.5 million verdicts followed a lengthy jury trial in U.S. District Court in Wichita.

    Massive Bad Faith Judgment

    In 2018, the District Court of Riley County, Kansas, issued a ruling enforcing an $11,588,548 judgment against insurance carrier USAIG for its negligence and bad faith in handling a claim against its insured pilot following a fatal airplane crash. In 2021, the Kansas Court of Appeals upheld the ruling. The court also ordered the trial court to award interest against the insurer, saying, “For an insurance carrier, one of the perils of failing to defend its insured is the possibility that it must pay interest on a judgment against the insured.” In addition, the court ordered the trial court to determine and award attorneys fees.
