Case Barnett Law - B2B - April 2019


APRIL 2019

OUR ADVENTURE AT LAKE ARROWHEAD THE BARNETTS ON ICE O ne of my greatest joys in life is being able to travel with my family. We’ve been to a lot of pretty great places, but the trips I love the most are the ones where I’m able to share something new with my kids. For example, this last winter Nicole and I took Finn and Harlow up to Lake Arrowhead to see snow for the first time.

Harlow were sitting on the couch, watching this silly movie for the eighth time together. Finn had his arm around Harlow, and while they were cuddling, I made them bacon and eggs, which Finn called “alien soup.” It’s one of my favorite memories from our trip. When it was time to leave, Finn was not ready. He was so sad and wanted to come back immediately. Fortunately, we have a lot of great trips planned for the future. Nicole and I want to

We knew we were guaranteed to have some snow during our trip, but the night before we went up, they got an extra 18 inches. It was beyond perfect. We had to put chains on the car tires, which Finn thought was the coolest thing ever. He kept talking about what an awesome “invention” it was. When we were driving through the snow, I had to agree with him. The kids were blown away by all the snow and how fresh the mountain air was. Finn called it “sugar air.” He and Harlow loved to stand by the window and breathe it in, despite the cold. We had to bundle Harlow up so much that she looked like Maggie Simpson. Early on, Harlow fell face first into the snow. I was worried for a moment, because it clearly freaked her out at first, but she quickly got back up. She must have decided it was fun, because she kept falling on purpose after that. Nicole’s parents, her sister, and her sister’s son were there too, so Finn and Harlow got to make a lot of fun memories with their cousin. Since this was their first time in the snow, we had a pretty long to-do list. They had a blast making snowballs, throwing the snowballs at trees, and going sledding. As a dad, my favorite part was building a sledding track for the kids. We tried to build a snowman, too, but we weren’t very successful. Harlow ran out of steam pretty fast, and Finn was having more fun sledding. One thing I really love about taking trips with my family is how random stuff that would be mundane at home becomes great memories. We found a movie on Netflix called “Leroy and Stitch.” It’s a sequel to the Disney movie “Lilo and Stitch” and, frankly, it’s a terrible movie. But it will always make me think of that magical family trip. The last morning we were there, Finn and

take the kids to Yosemite, and maybe rent an RV and drive up the California coast to Big Sur. When they’re older, I’d love to take Finn and Harlow to the state parks in Utah and later out to see the Grand Canyon. Nicole has a lot of wonderful childhood memories from camping and being in the great outdoors. They really shaped the person she is today. Considering she’s a pretty amazing person, I want my kids to have those same experiences. Getting our kids out into

nature is really important to us, and I look forward to all the adventures we’re going to have together.

‘The Magic of Thinking Big’ REVISITING A CLASSIC

was president, but today they’re a given. While this may make some of Schwartz’s ideas feel old hat to modern audiences, the essence of what he wrote in 1959 still rings true today. In fact, one could argue that several core concepts of this decades-old work are even more applicable today. A running theme in Schwartz’s book is the incomparable benefit of treating people like people. While many personal and business dealings hinge on the power of a handshake, there’s something refreshing about the common human decency of Schwartz’s outlook. So many motivational works today focus solely on personal reflection — “Thinking Big” reminds us that there is great power in simply being good to other people. Perhaps the largest takeaway today's readers can find here is to take on more and think bigger. “Thinking Big” is replete with real- world success stories of people doing precisely that, from students collaborating to solve supposedly impossible problems to wounded paratroopers making their way across the mountains of Burma toward safety. Whether you’re dusting off an old copy or picking it up for the first time, this classic is still worth a read in 2019.

In this issue we’re diving into an old classic that helped define the modern personal development genre and has helped millions of readers improve their lives. “The Magic of Thinking Big” flew off shelves when it was first published

in 1959, propelling author David J. Schwartz from university professor to foremost authority on motivation. But does his seminal work still hold true 60 years later? Is there still magic in letting yourself think big in the 21st century? In a word, yes. The lessons in “Thinking Big” are broad, but their wide applicability is also what makes them timeless. While today, many authors and motivational coaches — from “influencer” culture

to “growth hacking” — focus on whatever is new and shiny, Schwartz focuses on the fundamentals.

This can make the opening chapters in “Thinking Big” feel excessively familiar to those who have read other personal development books. The power of positivity and self- confidence may have been groundbreaking ideas back when Eisenhower

OUR CLIENTS SAY IT BEST “Great service and amazing support staff. I always felt like I was important to Case. He spent so much time with me, both in person and on the phone.

Because of the positive outcome of my case, I am able to finally move on and get closure on a terrible accident that happened to my son. I highly recommend Case Barnett Law.” –Sara H.

One of our clients was sexually assaulted while playing at a neighbor's home. In this matter, the homeowner's insurance of the defendant paid $300,000 to our client. Many people do not realize that homeowner's insurance can cover sexual assault when the parents of the assailant are negligent in the supervision of their child. The amount of a homeowner's insurance policy is relative to the home's value and some insurance policies have exclusions for sexual assault and/or intentional conduct. Each policy is different and needs to be examined to determine coverage. Our second client recovered $625,000 after being sexually assaulted. This minor came to the United States as a foreign exchange student. She was placed in the director's home where she was then sexually assaulted. A business is always responsible for the conduct of their employees. If an employee of a business sexually assaults someone, the business will be responsible for the sexual assault. Most businesses will carry a commercial policy of $1 million. Many businesses will also carry an excess policy relative to the value of the company.

This winter, we recovered a total of $925,000 for two victims of sexual assault. These cases are complicated and require an attorney who understands the complex legal issues that surround them. Sexual abuse is offensive and life-altering to the victim involved. While we can never undo the pain experienced by our clients in these situations, we strive to provide them with closure and compensation so that they can move forward on their path to healing. We hope that by sharing these stories, we can help other families who may not realize that there is something that can be done if their child has experienced abuse of any kind.

Many attorneys don't realize these types of cases can have a successful financial outcome for the victim. If you have a client come to you and you aren't sure if you can help them, give us a call at 949- 565-4886 or email us at info@ We can help you try the case or we can pay you a
