The insurance company question the extent and seriousness of his injuries and contested liability. One year later, Dan Newlin negotiated a $950,000 settlement.
Dan Newlin was also involved in advocating for the family of a slain policy officer. The Orlando police officer, Alfred Gordon was shot and killed in a robbery attempt in 2007.
The murderers, David Smith and Hugo Terry, killed him when they tried to rob him. They were arrested two days later and sentenced to life without chance for parole of first degree murder.
In 2010, rumors surfaced that the suspects were seeking to profit from their story. Dan Newlin encouraged the family to file a civil lawsuit against them to prevent them from profiteering from the murder of police officer Alfred Gordon.
Together with a Miami-based attorney, John Leighton, Dan Newlin urged the jury to ensure that criminals learnt one could not benefit from committing crime. The jury awarded Alfred Gordon’s estate and survivors $24 million.
