On January 28, 2015, Robert T. Bergsten, Esq. obtained a defense verdict from a Santa Barbara County Superior Court jury against a family seeking $8.2 million for the wrongful death of their son, Simon Chavez, against the defendant Cab Company. After a two-and-a-half-week trial, Robert T. Bergsten proved to a jury of 12 that the actions of the cab company were not a substantial factor in causing the death of Simon Chavez. While this case was very sad and very tragic, Bergsten was able to show the facts in a way that allowed the jury to set aside the emotional aspect of the case and focus on the evidence.
