Paul Glad, a partner in the law firm of Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal, is being sued over a March motor vehicle accident in Burlingame, California, that resulted in a mother losing a leg. The suit alleges Glad was under the influence of OxyContin when he pulled into the handicapped space of a grocery store, started getting out of his car without putting it in park and rammed a group of parents and girls selling Girl Scouts cookies. One of the mothers was pinned against a wall.
The civil suit was filed against the lawyer by the victims, 49-year-old Holly Rogers, who lost one leg above the knee after both were broken, and her eight-year-old daughter, Caroline Schoustra, whose leg was also broken. The Complaint, filed in San Mateo County Superior Court, alleges Glad had taken OxyContin earlier in the day. He has been the managing partner at Sonnenschein’s San Francisco office for several years and chairs the insurance practice group. While Paul Glad is a very good lawyer, that doesn’t excuse him for causing this incident. Hopefully, Glad and his insurance carrier will make sure the injured parties are fully compensated for their injuries, impairments and other damages.
