Our client was driving on Highway 121 express lane in Bedford and stopped for traffic. An 18 wheeler rear-ended her from behind pushing her into the vehicle ahead of her. She underwent conservative medical care and multiple spinal injections. The trucking company’s insurance company would not offer fair money to settle the case pre-suit, so a lawsuit was filed. After suit was filed, our client’s low back pain continued and eventually she underwent lumbar fusion surgery. Upon demand, the trucking company’s insurance paid the remainder of the policy limit, $940,000. Her medical bills totaled $761,000.
Our client was driving in Plano on I-635 when she was rear-ended by an 18 wheeler and pushed into the car in front of her. The truck driver claimed a hill did not allow him to see traffic stopped ahead and thus, he was not responsible for causing the wreck. Our client received medical care at the emergency room, chiropractic treatment, and saw a pain management doctor where she underwent multiple spinal nerve injections. After suit was filed, witness testimony proved the 18 wheeler driver’s story was not true and the 18 wheeler driver should be held responsible. Total settlement of $300,000. Total medical bills $138,000.
A gravel company failed to keep its truck in safe working condition. As a result, when its driver started out on his early morning 5am trip and saw the light on indicating the dump was raised, the driver didn’t think it was raised and didn’t do what he knew he should’ve have done to ensure it was in the proper position. As the driver started to pass under an overpass, the dump rose up (or according to the company was already raised) and crashed into the overpass leaving debris all over a pitch dark highway and separating the end-dump from the tractor. As JS drove down the highway at highway speeds, he hit the debris left on the roadway, lost control and bounced off the back side of the dump truck. The driver blamed the company and the company blamed its driver. Our client suffered a head injury and back and neck injuries.
Traveling back into town from a family funeral, our client and her family were forced to stop on Hwy 45 for a backup in traffic.

Our client was a passenger in a vehicle while on the job. His vehicle was violently t-boned in an intersection by a careless driver who ran a red light. He sustained a concussion without loss of consciousness and he continued to experience headaches and sensitivity to light.

Total settlement $117,500.00 (maximum insurance funds available).

Our client was driving on 287 when he slowed to a complete stop due to traffic ahead of him. An 18-wheeler behind him couldn’t stop in time and rear-ended the client. The truck driver initially tried to claim that the client swerved in front of him and stopped suddenly, but changed his testimony later, stating that he didn’t see the client until seconds before the collision. The client suffered injuries to his neck, low back, shoulder and achilles. He had multiple surgeries for the ruptured achilles, shoulder tear, and herniated disc in his low back. The case was tried and a jury found in favor of the client for a total of $1,320,830.00.
