An Experienced San Diego Personal Injury Attorney Who Cares for His Clients
Gordon Levinson has lived and worked in San Diego County most of his life. San Diego County was his home when he married his wife. Two of his three children were born in San Diego, CA—one at Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla and the other at Palomar Medical Center Escondido. Gordon graduated from college in San Diego County from California State University San Marcos, where he received his bachelor’s degree in history with honors. While Gordon’s children were young, they spent much of their childhood enjoying San Diego’s amenities, such as the San Diego Zoo and Sea World San Diego. So, although Gordon is originally a Northern California import, his San Diego roots run deep.
Throughout his undergraduate career, Gordon worked as a parking valet at the landmark San Diego hotel L’Auberge Del Mar. Moreover, Gordon has spent nearly his entire career as an attorney in San Diego County—first as an insurance-defense litigator for White and Bright in Escondido, CA and the Law Office of James Rogers in Solana Beach, CA, then as a plaintiff’s personal injury lawyer in Del Mar, CA, and then in Carlsbad.
40 Years of Experience in Injury Claims
One of the Levinson Law Group’s most fascinating cases comes from a high-speed freeway collision that occurred on Interstate 5 close to the Sassafras Street exit near the San Diego International Airport. The client was a young woman in her early twenties. A careless motorist was attempting to pass her on the freeway going more than 85 miles per hour and just barely made contact with her rear bumper. However, that brief contact caused the client’s car to spin out of control and slam into the concrete divider. In the crash, the client suffered a concussion, a fractured clavicle, a fractured lateral epicondyle (commonly known as the elbow), annular tearing along her cervical discs, a lumbar sprain / strain, and another rare injury that the Levinson Law Group had never encountered before: Complex regional pain syndrome, also referred to as RSD.
Complex regional pain syndrome is a cruel injury where the victim feels a burning sensation from the point of the trauma—her elbow, in this case—that radiates to the end of the extremities; the tips of her fingers. Despite all medical efforts to alleviate the burning sensation, victims of complex regional pain syndrome experience symptoms for the rest of their lives. Other symptoms include exaggerated hair growth in the afflicted areas and slight skin discoloration. Although the Levinson Law Group was able to obtain a full policy limits settlement for this client in the low to mid-six figures, unfortunately, there is no known cure for complex regional pain syndrome, and recovery varies from person to person. We at the Levinson Law Group are praying for this client to obtain a full recovery, but her prognosis is undetermined at this time.
