Recent victories for Angstman Law Office
Angstman Law Office was on the winning side of a recent Bethel jury verdict. Myron Angstman represented a Bethel police officer in a case concerning the use of a taser gun. The jury found that our client did not use excessive force, and awarded no damages. There have been several recent settlements. The most recent involved a car accident in Bethel, where our client received about $80,000 for his injuries. Another Bethel client received $200,000 for injuries suffered in a sexual assault, and a Teller girl received $75,000 for injuries suffered in a ski accident. Two airplane incidents resulted in recoveries as well. A crash in Wales and a runway incident in Kotzebue each produced a settlement for our clients of about $100,000. Finally, a playground accident in Manakotak resulted in a $200,000 settlement for a young girl who lost part of a finger in a fall.
In the office, Myron is preparing for his first ever jury trial in Anchorage, scheduled for April 9th. It’s a modest traffic accident case, where ALO represents two people who were injured. There are a few settlements to report for our clients. A Dillingham client has recovered about $115,000 for injuries suffered in an auto accident, and a Dillingham minor received $20,000 for injuries suffered in an assault. A Bethel woman settled her car accident claim for about $110,000, and a Chuathbaluk child received $12,500 for a playground accident. Finally, a Kwethluk man settled his claim for police negligence for $15,000
