Benny Khorsandi

Trial Attorney

Benny Khorsandi is a trial attorney at Arash Law led by Arash Khorsandi, Esq., protecting the injured and wronged in catastrophic personal injury, mass torts actions, sexual abuse, and products liability. Benny joined the firm in March 2020 coming with an extensive personal injury and mass torts background at one of the top trial firms in the nation.

Prior to joining the firm Benny represented hundreds of wildfire victims throughout the state of California, including those affected by the 2017 Thomas Fire in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties and subsequent debris flows in Montecito, California, the 2018 Woolsey Fire in Los Angeles and Ventura counties, The 2017 North Bay Fires in Sonoma County and the 2018 Camp Fire in Paradise California.

Benny was part of a team which held the position of lead counsel on behalf of all of these wildfire victims in litigation against Southern California Edison (“SCE) and Pacific Gas & Electric Company (PG&E). This complex litigation experience against these large institutions has resulted in Benny’s ability to protect the injured from both the big & small.

Prior to beginning his practice, Benny externed for the Honorable Robert Gary Klausner, US District Court Judge for the Central District of California. It was here where Benny was able to see the other side of the courtroom from one of the longest-tenured judges on the federal bench.

Benny attended Loyola Law School where he was the McNicholas Scholar. While in school, Benny worked for one of the top employment and civil rights firm in the nation, representing aggrieved police officers in actions for discrimination, sexual harassment, and retaliation. Benny attended the University of California Irvine for his undergraduate studies obtaining a B.A. in Social Ecology.

Benny is currently an active member of the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles (CAALA), The American Association for Justice (AAJ), and the Consumer Attorney of California (CAOC). Benny also has several published works for The Advocate Magazine, one of the leading consumer protection editorials in the state.

Some of Benny’s notable settlements and verdicts include:
  • $6,800,000 – Settlement for a group of farmworkers who were killed when the car they were transported in to work flipped over in Merced County. Does v. California Farm (confidential)
  • $6,000,000 –A young roofing contractor fell through a defective skylight at a commercial building. This case dealt with very technical legal issues, particularly, the defendants were alleging a defense under the Privette doctrine, which is designed to protect them from this exact type of fall. Despite the heavy legal defenses available, Benny and his team were able to prevail and secure this settlement for a deserving client.
  • $5,000,000 –Truck Vs. Motorcycle – From the outset, the Defendants took a strong stance on liability in this Truck v. Motorcycle case. Since our client did not have motorcycle insurance at the time of the collision, the case fell under California’s Prop 213 clause precluding our client from getting any emotional distress damages. The traffic collision report placed our client at fault. Our client was alleged to have been intoxicated at the time of the crash as well. Because of these issues, another firm dropped our clients’ case prior to our representation. Despite these uphill challenges, Benny Khorsandi and Brian Beecher were able to obtain key deposition testimony and evidence proving the Defendant's contribution to the collision and displaying that the other issues were all red herrings used to distract from the truth. Our clients were very deserving people who had their lives upended by the Defendants’ negligence on the night of the collision. We are very proud of our team for providing them justice and hopefully changing the trajectory of their lives for the better.
  • $3,200,000 – Our client was on the roof of a commercial building and fell through a skylight due to inadequate safety and dangerous conditions. This case was referred to Benny by another Personal Injury attorney. Skylight falls are an epidemic in the United States and are very difficult cases to prevail on because of laws that protect contractors and landlords. Despite these hurdles, Benny and the team were able to secure a substantial settlement for our client.
  • $3,000,000 - Benny and Brian Beecher represented a 3-year-old boy who sustained a mild traumatic brain injury after he was run over by a golf cart at a fair. The insurance company for the fair argued that the child was already born disabled and that the blame was on the child’s parents for allegedly failing to supervise him. Benny and Brian fought this case for years until justice was served for our deserving client. The settlement was obtained during jury selection in Sacramento County.
  • $2,000,969 – Verdict by a Los Angeles County Superior Court jury in Van Nuys awarded to a man who was injured when his vehicle was struck from behind by a large commercial plumbing van. Benny was part of the trial team that obtained this verdict. Gil v. Anderson Plumbing
  • $1,250,000 - To the naked eye, this case was a simple rear-end auto crash where our client suffered a disc herniation in his lumbar spine requiring two epidural pain management injections to help him with his pain. But our team managed to secure the maximum policy limits of the at-fault party due to the lifelong pain and future medical care he would require.
  • $1,000,000 – A pedestrian was in a parking lot by the Defendant’s vehicle at low speed, resulting in a pre-existing eye condition becoming exacerbated. This case was referred to Benny and his team after the carrier rejected referring counsel’s demand for the $15,000 policy. Benny and his team were able to establish that the drivers employers insurance carrier should cover the incident. Since there were no witnesses to the scene, the Defendant Driver alleged that our client walked into her vehicle when the car was stopped. Benny and his team were able to prove through circumstantial evidence that this story did not add up.
  • $1,000,000 – A young woman was involved in a rear end collision in Solano County. As a result of the rear end collision, she suffered complaints consistent with a mild traumatic brain injury. Despite the fact that there was no objective evidence to support the brain injury, and that the woman’s medical bills were only $84,000, Benny and his team were able to obtain a favorable result for another deserving client.
  • $1,000,000 - Settlement in a heavily disputed Truck v. Truck case. Our client was blamed by the insurance company from day one and was always told that they would never take responsibility for the collision that injured our client’s lower back. After years of litigation, Benny and the team were able to secure the full policy limits for our client months before trial.
  • $1,000,000 - Settlement in a heavily disputed Auto v. Truck case that occurred on a local highway. The position from the insurance company was that our client caused the accident and was not driving carefully. Since there were no witnesses to the scene, the insurance company believed they would prevail on this defense. After deposing the truck driver and the founder of the company, the policy limits were tendered. This case was also referred to Benny by a fellow lawyer.
