In The Recent Talisman Casualty Lawsuit Settlement Deal, The Two Sides Agreed On A $3 Million Dol …
In the case of Talisman, it was one of the numerous defendants involved in the lawsuit.
The Talisman Casualty Lawsuit was filed by Jack Siegel, a television producer, who sued Talisman for personal injury. While the Talisman Company denies liability, claiming that Mr. Siegel was only acting under the influence of Talisman’s dark matter drug-like substance.
The Talisman Company issued a defense for their initial settlement offer that was over 40 times higher than what they initially sought, but Talisman agreed to the terms. Also, the jury was told that Talisman had received a fair and equitable settlement, after all expenses and attorneys fees.
The Fine Print Disclaimer, which was provided to the jurors by the attorney representing Talisman, suggested that any plaintiffs who would like to recoup their lost income in this , should pursue litigation against Talisman themselves. In response, the plaintiffs asserted that the Fine Print Disclaimer did not and could not cover their own personal injury.
Not surprisingly, Joe Roberts, the plaintiff, claims that the “fine print disclaimer” was a fraudulent form of letter of settlement. In fact, Roberts was awarded $4.4 million, of which the Talisman Company only Talisman Casualty Insurance Company offered half, just to make it look more appealing to the jury.
So, Roberts has filed a wrongful death suit against Talisman, seeking compensation for his loss of income, the wrongful death of his family members, and death of his pets. He is seeking compensatory and punitive damages, compensation for medical and funeral expenses, as well as damages for mental anguish and pain and suffering.
In case you’re not familiar with Roberts’ story, here’s a short summary: Joe Roberts, a self-employed TV producer, worked for the network I. Television (a subsidiary of I. Company), working for the programmer in most cases, and being responsible for researching, producing, and sometimes even directing the shows.
One day, Roberts quit his job, after not receiving payment for his work, he was angry at the I. Company and told them that he did not want to be working there anymore.
The I. Company called Roberts at home, where he was at the time and convinced him to come back to work at the company, even though he had already left, and promised him a raise and a bonus.
Roberts then returned to work but became a lot more stressed out at the I. Company because he was beginning to get “hot” with other women.
He later filed a complaint against the I. Company with the Federal Trade Commission, and then withdrew the complaint, after being assured that Talisman was not a fraudulent company, he was being bullied into buying into their marketing
