Outcome: $4,800,000 combined settlement against King County and Shell Oil Company

Description: Catastrophic Personal Injury Case brought in King County Superior Court involved multiple defendants and various claims for damages. In this matter, Jay Krulewitch was part of a team of four lawyers who represented Plaintiff, Said Aba Sheikh, who was 14 when he was brutally assaulted and beaten at a Shell Gas Station by four juvenile defendants, two of whom were in foster care with the Department of Social and Health Services (“DSHS”) and/or on juvenile probation with King County. The client, Said Aba Sheikh, suffered very serious injuries. Jack Connelly, Darrell Cochran, and Fred Diamondstone were the other members of Plaintiff’s legal team. Plaintiff alleged that King County Probation failed to properly supervise these juvenile defendants, leaving them free to roam the streets of the City of Seattle, while they violated probation and parole and committed new crimes. Fred Diamondstone took the lead to prove the case against King County. King County paid 4.5 million to settle. Plaintiff also alleged that Shell Oil Company was liable for failing to provide adequate security at the service station here the assault occurred. The brutal beating administered to Said occurred at a Shell Service Station with a long history of criminal incidents. Jay Krulewitch was the lead attorney who helped establish Shell Oil Company’s liability for failing to provide adequate security at the above-mentioned service station. Shell Oil Company paid $300,000 to settle this claim. The case went to trial against DSHS. The jury verdict of 10.3 million dollars was overturned in a heart- breaking decision by the WA Supreme Court, which ruled that DSHS’s duty to control foster children does not extend outside of the foster home to the general public at-large.
