San Jose personal injury attorney settlement police shootingRonald Wood, who filed an excessive force lawsuit after he was shot by a City of San Jose police officer in 2015, will receive a $500,000 settlement from the city. Wood, 53, was shot multiple times after police say he tried to grab a shotgun in a patrol vehicle. Jachimowicz Law Group contended that at the time of the shooting, Officer Daniel Morales should have already known the weapon was not loaded and was not in Wood’s control when he fired at Wood.

“This set of circumstances was unfortunate for both our client and the officer involved,” Jachimowicz Law Group Attorney Josh Jachimowicz said. “The resolution of this litigation is fair and takes into account the degree of the city’s liability as well as the impact of Mr. Woods’ future medical needs.”

Facts of the Case

Police responded to a call on September 24, 2015 in Monterey Oaks to check in on Wood, who reportedly said he was going to commit suicide. Morales located Wood sitting on a curb and spoke to him through his passenger window, and Wood eventually reached through and into a duffel bag in the vehicle’s front seat. Morales exited the vehicle and pepper sprayed and tased Wood. Moments later, Wood moved to the driver’s side and reportedly told Morales he intended to pull the shotgun from the center console.

Whether you are watching minor league baseball or a pro-football game, one thing you can count is that fans will be enthusiastically cheering on their favorite team. Unfortunately, the competition can get intense, particularly when alcohol is involved. In a recent case, a San Jose man suffered potentially life-threatening personal injuries after being beaten up by another fan outside a 49er’s game. When these types of situations or other incidents occur, you need professional legal guidance in determining who is ultimately responsible.

Brawl at Local Sporting Event

While sporting events may be ‘just a game’ to some people, others take an extremely serious interest in supporting their players and in the overall outcome. Whether there is money or simply bragging rights riding on a game, tempers can easily flare. Unfortunately, a San Jose man was recently caught up in an altercation outside Levi Stadium, which left him fighting for his life as a result.

The 33-year-old victim attended the recent football game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Arizona Cardinals. As he was leaving the stadium, he kicked a beer bottle laying on the ground, which came close a 34-year-old Madera resident. Police say that the Madera resident dramatically overreacted to the situation. He approached the victim, striking him with his fist once in the head, then punching him a second time as the injured man attempted to get away.
