WRONGFUL DEATH / COMMERCIAL VEHICLE ACCIDENT

Following a fatal 18-wheeler accident, the family of a deceased woman hired Grossman Law Offices to investigate the matter and report our findings. The family initially knew very little about what happened in the accident, only that the mother of the family was killed and that there was an 18-wheeler involved. Our attorneys mobilized immediately upon being hired, and, along with our accident reconstructionist, conducted a thorough analysis of the scene. Early in the case, it became apparent what had happened: The driver of an 18-wheeler made an abrupt lane change, forcing our client's car into the grass median of the interstate. Once the vehicle drove into the grass, traction was lost, causing the car to swerve back onto the highway wherein the vehicle then struck a parked 18-wheeler. It was obvious that our clients had a case, and they instructed us to move forward with a wrongful death suit. However, what was less clear is which trucking company was primarily responsible. On one hand, it could be argued that the initial 18-wheeler set the whole chain of events into motion when that driver made an illegal lane change. On the other hand, the second 18-wheeler was illegally parked in an emergency lane, in violation of federal statute, and it could easily be said that if he had not been parked there, the victim would have lived since the car would have just been able to come to a stop on the road's shoulder. Naturally, this fact pattern created an opportunity for the two trucking companies to point the finger at one another. Our attorneys aggressively litigated the case, never allowing either defendant to escape responsibility for their contribution to the accident. Further, it would be a monumental understatement to suggest that this case took a lot of effort to successfully resolve. Our attorneys took the depositions of dozens of people involved, travelling to several different states in the process. Further, we invested many hundreds of hours of man power into the case. Our philosophy was simple: if we allow the defendants a moment to catch their breath, they will treat the case as less of a priority. So, from the very beginning until the the case was resolved, we made sure that no time passed from one milestone to the next. Eventually, the defendants relented and the case was resolved on the courthouse steps. From start to finish, a case that ordinarily would take most firms years to litigated, was resolved in 13 months, due entirely to our attorneys' diligence.

WRONGFUL DEATH / COMMERCIAL VEHICLE ACCIDENT

Our attorneys were hired to pursue a wrongful death truck accident case following a fatal wreck in West Texas. This case was certainly important to our firm, the same as any other wrongful death case, but it took on a new level of significance because of the horrific injustice that almost occurred thanks to a botched police investigation. As we ultimately learned from analyzing the physical evidence and from talking to numerous witnesses who all told the same story, the accident occurred as a large oilfield truck entered I-20, immediately cutting across multiple lanes and into the "fast lane," wherein this truck forced a small passenger car off of the roadway and into oncoming traffic, causing a fatal head-on collision. As if that was not bad enough, the truck driver then fled the scene. However, the police report told a completely different (and utterly inaccurate) story. Essentially, the police made it sound like the deceased passenger car driver (our clients' father) just arbitrarily left the roadway and crashed into the other vehicle, killing himself in the process. The family thought that did not sound right, and they brought us into the case soon after the accident, which proved to be one of the most important decisions they ever made. Since we were able to conduct a thorough investigation while the evidence was still available, we were able to identify that the police figured the accident all wrong. Our research soon led us to eye witnesses to the accident. Said witnesses, an entire family sharing a minivan, all saw the same thing. They explained how the driver of the commercial vehicle ran the other car off the road and then fled, but they also explained how they pursued the commercial truck driver and took down his license plate information. Once the driver realized they were following them, he tried to run them too off the road. These witnesses then helped us identify other witnesses who were at the scene, and as more and more good Samaritans came forward, we were able to completely dispel the "official" version of what happened in the accident. Nevertheless, since the police report ultimately showed an inaccurate fact pattern, the defendants were emboldened, and they denied liability in the case for many months. Eventually, we uncovered evidence that showed that the truck driver A) had worked nearly 80 hours in five days, B) was likely on drugs at the time of the accident, C) had attempted to tamper with witness testimony, and D) that he likely conspired with his employer to cover his tracks. Once we got this evidence under the spotlight, the defendants accepted responsibility, and the case was resolved soon thereafter.

WRONGFUL DEATH / COMMERCIAL VEHICLE ACCIDENT

Our firm was hired after a woman lost her husband of 10 years, due to the carelessness of a truck driver. Our client's husband, a truck driver himself, was killed when the driver of a different tractor trailer failed to yield the right of way and cut him off, forcing the decedent to collide into the trailer of the other rig. Our client was absolutely devastated by the loss of her husband. She not only suffered severe emotional distress, she also endured financial upheaval, because her husband was the sole breadwinner. Despite being entirely in the wrong, the defendants tried to invoke several "novel" defense theories to downplay their liability. Our attorneys were able to defeat these arguments, early on in the case, and the defedants were left with only one viable argument: the victim was not wearing his seatbelt. This was a fallacious argument for two reasons. First, the damage to the victim's tractor was so severe that no one could conclusively determine whether he was wearing his seatbelt or not. Second, because of the severity of the impact, wearing a seatbelt would have made no difference. In order to refute this argument, we took a two-pronged approach. We hired a medical doctor who provided an opinion to dispel the myth that the decedent would have survived had he been wearing his seatbelt. And more importantly, we filed the case in a venue where evidence about seatbelt usage was inadmissable. After a few rounds of depositions that did not go well for the defendants, they came to the table and offered to mediate. The case was settled at mediation. Prior to his passing, the decedent worked very hard to provide for his family, so that his wife did not have to work, and was able to pursue her dream of a college education. Resolving this case favorably helped our client see this dream come true.

We were hired by a motorcyclist who suffered a serious brain injury after he was involved in a crash with an 18-wheeler. Despite a police investigation that put the commercial truck driver squarely at fault, the truck driver and his attorneys denied that he did anything wrong. They went so far as to insist that the police investigation was completely incorrect and that motorcyclist caused his own injuries. We hired one of the nation's leading accident reconstructionists to get to the bottom of what really happened. The expert concurred with the police investigation and after some tense negotiations, the case was resolved to our client's satisfaction.

WRONGFUL DEATH / AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENT

(policy limits) Our firm was hired to pursue an intoxicated driver who killed an elderly school crossing guard. The fatal accident occurred as the decedent was escorting a woman and her child across the roadway through a crosswalk. The defendant then sped through the school zone, in an intoxicated a state, and struck the decedent who died on the scene. The family hired our firm to investigate and pursue the defendant under a wrongful death cause of action. Following our investigation and preliminary vehicle inspection, our attorneys issued a Stowers demand to the defendants. A significant factor in resolving this claim is that merely days before we submitted our demand to the defendant' insurance carrier, we won a large case against the very same insurance carrier, which was one of several such victories secured against the carrier in our firm's history. Our threats of litigation were therefore heeded and the defendants offered policy limits to settle the claim without the need to file suit.

WRONGFUL DEATH / COMMERCIAL VEHICLE

Our firm was contacted by an out-of-state attorney who represented the family of a Georgia man who was killed while in Texas. The lawyer explained that the man lost his life in an 18-wheeler accident, and the family had tasked the lawyer with finding a firm in Texas to represent them. After extensive research, the attorney selected our firm. Now, there was a major problem with the case: the police report put the victim 100% at fault for the wreck. The police claimed that he was speeding, weaving in and out of traffic, and ultimately killed himself when he ran his motorcycle into the back of an 18-wheeler. The referring attorney explained that the family didn't believe that the decedent would be so reckless and that something must be wrong with the police report. We explained to the referring attorney that we would be glad to look into it, but we would drop the matter if the evidence corroborated the police report, since we're not in the business of pursuing frivolous cases. He understood and agreed. We soon began to suspect that the police report was wrong. We spoke to the witnesses whom the police report claimed had seen the decedent riding his motorcycle recklessly. They all said that the police misquoted them or flat-out made up what was in the report. Case in point, one gentleman, himself a tractor trailer driver, was quoted in the police report as saying that the victim sped by at twice the speed limit. The witness said that was all wrong. What he actually told the police, he insisted, was that the witness passed going twice as fast as he (the witness) was, only the witness was driving a heavy vehicle and was therefore only going about half the speed limit. So, the motorcyclist wasn't going fast, the witness was going slow. We continued to get testimony from other witnesses, and they all said the same thing: the investigating officer misquoted them. We soon learned that the officer who made the report wasn't actually the one who spoke to the witnesses. He sent a rookie officers to get statements from the witnesses and then relied on the rookie's notes to make his report. Something got lost in translation, apparently. To his credit, when we deposed the officer and presented him with our findings, he was honorable, admitted his mistake, and changed his official position. But this still left one problem unsolved. Even if the motorcyclist wasn't speeding or riding recklessly, he still crashed into the back of an 18-wheeler, so how would that be anyone's fault but his own. Unfortunatelty for the trucking company, the 18-wheeler involved in the wreck had a sophisticated GPS device installed, and we were able to use the authorirty of the court to obtain the device's data. This particular GPS hardware would record the truck's position once every ten seconds and then store it internally. Armed with this GPS data, we were able to map out the truck driver's path.

After extensive research, the attorney selected our firm. In short, he cut the motorcyclist off, and the motorcyclist couldn't avoid hitting the 18-wheeler. The trucking company's accident reconstructionist originally defended the truck driver's story. But when we showed him the GPS data and how it showed a ping which located the truck about 200 feet from the intersection and then pinged again (ten seconds later) at the point of impact, the trucking company's own expert was forced to agree that there's no way the truck driver would've had time to cover that distance and come to a stop in ten seconds, meaning he must have ran the stop sign. The trucking company soon settled with our clients. While this was not the biggest case we've ever had, it demonstrates what our attorneys are capable of. Unquestionably, most attorneys would have given up as soon as they saw a police report that was problematic. But we followed the evidence and were ultimately able to help our clients obtain fair compensation for their loss.

As it turned out, the truck driver had lied under oath about how the accident happened. He claimed that he drove down a long road that connected a sporting goods store's parking lot to a highway access road, came to a stop at the end of the road for several seconds, and then slowly turned onto a lane that soon merged into the flow of traffic. Then, all of a sudden, the motorcyclist hit him from behind. The GPS data showed that this was all a lie. What actually happened is that he came flying down the connecting road, blew through the stop sign, and then turned immediately into traffic, not into the lane that merged with traffic.

In short, he cut the motorcyclist off, and the motorcyclist couldn't avoid hitting the 18-wheeler.

WRONGFUL DEATH / COMMERCIAL VEHICLE ACCIDENT

The family of a deceased woman hired our firm following a fatal 18-wheeler accident. The accident occurred as the driver of an 18-wheeler lost control of his vehicle and veered out of his lane, resulting in a massive collision. The decedent, a passenger in a vehicle, died on the scene. Her adult children consulted our firm to initially investigate the accident and make sense of the facts and circumstances surrounding the wreck, since the family felt that the police report did not make clear precisely what occurred. We launched a full investigation and immediately deposed the investigating officers. Upon the completion of our investigation, it was apparent that the trucking company was indeed negligent and a lawsuit was soon filed. The defendant's mounted an aggressive defense whereby they initially claimed that the truck driver was overcome by his passenger whom they alleged grabbed the steering wheel and deliberately drove the truck off the road, despite the truck driver's best efforts. We refuted this claim by illustrating that the tire marks that were present clearly showed that the truck gradually moved across the roadway and eventually onto the grass, which is entirely inconsistent with an abrupt lane change caused by someone taking control of the wheel. It was quite an unusual defense strategy, and, frankly, we were a little surprised that a defendant would make such an absurd claim. The defendants then argued that a tire blowout may have contributed to the accident, which is significant because it would enable the defendant to offset some portion of their liability to the tire manufacturer or installer. The problem we faced was that the salvage yard who towed the truck destroyed the wreckage before we were hired in the case. If the truck still existed, it would have been easy for us to examine the tires and make a conclusive determination. But since the truck no longer existed, this provided the defendants with a perfect scapegoat defense. However, through deposition testimony of the investigating officer, we established that there was absolutely no indication at the scene of the accident that a tire had blown out, severely weakening their ability to argue this defense. Finally, the defendants argued that the company which loaded the trailer may have done so inappropriately. This argument was more plausible than the others considering that the precise cause of the decedent's death was that she was essentially pummeled by cargo that broke through trailer and struck her person. Our firm consulted several experts in the fields of heavy cargo transportation and physics. Our experts felt that the cargo was secured in a manner that is perfectly consistent with industry standards, and that, due to the forces involved, the cargo would not have behaved any differently irrespective of how it was secured. In short, the collision caused the cargo to break free and the negligence lay squarely on the trucking company and not any other entity. The case was successfully resolved through litigation.

The family of a deceased woman hired our firm following a fatal 18-wheeler accident. The accident occurred as the driver of an 18-wheeler lost control of his vehicle and veered out of his lane, resulting in a massive collision. The decedent, a passenger in a vehicle, died on the scene. Her adult children consulted our firm to initially investigate the accident and make sense of the facts and circumstances surrounding the wreck, since the family felt that the police report did not make clear precisely what occurred.

We launched a full investigation and immediately deposed the investigating officers. Upon the completion of our investigation, it was apparent that the trucking company was indeed negligent and a lawsuit was soon filed. The defendant's mounted an aggressive defense whereby they initially claimed that the truck driver was overcome by his passenger whom they alleged grabbed the steering wheel and deliberately drove the truck off the road, despite the truck driver's best efforts. We refuted this claim by illustrating that the tire marks that were present clearly showed that the truck gradually moved across the roadway and eventually onto the grass, which is entirely inconsistent with an abrupt lane change caused by someone taking control of the wheel. It was quite an unusual defense strategy, and, frankly, we were a little surprised that a defendant would make such an absurd claim.

The defendants then argued that a tire blowout may have contributed to the accident, which is significant because it would enable the defendant to offset some portion of their liability to the tire manufacturer or installer.

Our firm was hired by a man who suffered a serious brain injury after a fall on the job. Our attorneys were able to successfully prove that the person directing the employee's activities had instructed him to use a dangerous and unstable ladder instead of an interior stairwell to access the roof. Because of this decision, the victim used the ladder which slipped out from under him, resulting in a 20+ foot fall and subsequent serious injuries. The money recovered was able to help the injured man provide for his family.

WRONGFUL DEATH / DRAM SHOP

This case involved a gentleman who was killed when he was struck by a drunk driver, while standing on the side of the road. Earlier in the evening, a pair of habitual drinkers visited their favorite restaurant. They were regular customers of this establishment and tipped well, so the servers bent the rules for them on a regular basis. The drinkers' M.O. was to patronize this establishment on a weekend, drink to excess, and then sleep it off in the hotel next door. The servers felt liberated to these customers an obscene amount of alcohol, because they believed they would always go straight from the restaurant to the hotel. On the night in question, the drunken customers decided instead to go home. The victim of the accident was helping his college-aged daughter put gas in her stranded vehicle on the side of the highway. Though he was safely off the roadway, he was struck anyhow, because the drunken driver was so intoxicated that he got target fixation and veered directly into the parked car. The victim's daughter witnessed his demise. The victim left behind his wife of 20+ years and 3 children. The family hired an attorney who was a family friend. Said attorney was able to help them recover monies from the defedent's auto liability policy, but felt uncomfortable pursuing a case against the restaurant. The attorney then encouraged his clients to hire us. We were able to take the ball and run with it. This was a hard-fought case, wherein the defendents insisted that their practice of serving special customers to such an extreme degree that they were falling down drunk was an acceptable way for a bar to operate, if they were pretty sure that the customer wouldn't drive a car. Of course, that is not how Texas law works. After appromixately a year of litigation, we were able to successfully resolve the case for our clients.

SERIOUS BRAIN INJURY / COMMERCIAL VEHICLE (TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY)

An oilfield worker was driving into work out in West Texas. There was a light fog and it was just before dawn. Without warning, this gentleman struck the trailer of a truck that had blocked the entire highway, while making a left-hand turn. Our client suffered catastrophic facial fractures, a traumatic brain injury, and ended up in a coma. After numerous life-saving surgeries, the gentleman's family and children came to see him at the hospital. His younger children refused to see their father, because his injuries scared them so badly. The family reached out to our attorneys and quickly hired us to hold the trucking company accountable. Despite the defendant's obvious fault, they were determined to put up a fight and avoid responsibility. First, they alleged that the victim had been speeding, and that that's what had really caused the crash. We were able to prove this was not the case, because the speedometer had frozen at the time of the crash and showed that our client was traveling below the speed limit. When this failed, they alleged that the client wasn't wearing a seatbelt. Our attorneys reached out to the EMS technicians who responded to the crash and they testified that they had to cut our client's seatbelt in order to get him our of the car and treat him. Another defense was rebutted. When it came time to go on offense, we were able to come up with damning evidence of the trucking company's negligence. When we interviewed the company's safety compliance officer, who was in jail on a DUI conviction, we determined that the truck driver in the crash wasn't properly evaluated during the hiring process. Most importantly, an examination of the driver's vehicle showed that the high-visibility tape on the truck's trailer was caked in mud and could not be seen. This is the very piece of safety equipment that is supposed to prevent these kinds of crashes and it wasn't there. Confronted with this evidence and some depositions that didn't go well for their side, the trucking company saw the writing on the wall and settled the case.

WRONGFUL DEATH / COMMERCIAL VEHICLE ACCIDENT

(policy limits) Our firm was hired by the wife and children of a retired Army Colonel who was killed in an under-ride 18-wheeler accident. In addition to being a decorated veteran, the decedent worked both professionally and on a voluntary basis to establish numerous learning institutions and vocational programs for at risk youths. The accident occurred as the decedent was traveling on a rural highway when an 18-wheeler failed to yield the right of way and made a rolling stop through a stop sign. This placed the trailer of the 18-wheeler in a position whereby it blocked the entire roadway and shoulder, leaving the decedent no option but to collide with the trailer. Witnesses on the scene attempted to revive him but to no avail. Furthermore, while two female eye witnesses struggled to pry open the decedent's door to provide emergency care, the truck driver stayed in his truck and offered no assistance. Despite what appeared to be an incredibly apparent case of negligence on behalf of the defendant, defense counsel refused to accept liability resulting in rather lengthy litigation. The defendants initially denied the claim based on the allegation that the decedent was speeding and the truck driver therefore could not adequately gauge the amount of time he had to pause at the stop sign. The physical evidence contradicted this notion entirely, notwithstanding the fact that even if the decedent had been contributorily negligent, that would not have outweighed the severe degree of negligence on the part of the defendant. Nevertheless, our attorneys were able to conclusively refute this argument based on eye-witness testimony and the testimony from police investigators who calculated the decedent's speed to be precisely at the posted speed limit. In a desperate and largely unprecedented move, the defendants then designated the state as a responsible third party. Generally speaking, a defendant will often threaten to designate a third party in order to leverage their position but it is rare that such an arbitrary and arguably frivolous designation is actually carried out. However, that is precisely what occurred and as a result, the state was also drawn into the lawsuit by the defendants. The basis of the defendants' argument was that the state erected a large street sign that obstructed the truck driver's view of approaching traffic. Several months of intense litigation were required before the defendant finally abandoned this argument. The argument was finally abandoned by the defendants when in the first mediation our attorneys presented video footage shot (in a controlled setting) from the perspective of an 18-wheeler driver which showed that the sign simply did not obstruct enough of the roadway to be a hazard. The case was ultimately resolved through litigation.

WRONGFUL DEATH / COMMERCIAL VEHICLE ACCIDENT

(policy limits) A husband and father of three was killed when the driver of an 18-wheeler veered into oncoming traffic, striking the young man's vehicle and several others. The defendant was employed by a small construction company that operated only a single 18-wheeler. As such, the defendants were largely underinsured and were not financially solvent. Furthermore, the defendants had an eroding insurance policy (the type where the defendant's own attorney's fees and other claims eat away at the available funds to the accident's major victims) and numerous other parties were intent upon filing claims of their own since the 18-wheeler struck multiple other vehicles. This created the need for an aggressive and rapid response before the other claimants could erode the policy. Defense counsel made it clear that they wished to litigate the case despite the insurmountable liability arguments that our attorneys presented. They intended to designate a third party as a responsible defendant (blame someone else for the accident) since the accident happened in a construction zone, even though it was abundantly clear that the construction zone played no role in the crash. Additionally, the defendants made it clear that they wished to downplay the extent of the damages by virtue of a character assassination on the decedent. Even though he had no fault in the accident at all, they intended to call into question his past. Fortunately for our clients, our firm has successfully litigated against the defendant's insurer in nearly a dozen other cases, so the carrier was quite aware of our courtroom capabilities. We presented a sample lawsuit to the defendant's insurance carrier and informed them that the lawsuit was to be filed the moment that they refused to settle. Additionally, our attorneys submitted a Stowers Demand with a brief window of time for the defendants to respond. We made it abundantly clear that we intended to seek punitive damages and that we would assert the full limits of the carrier's exposure under the Stowers Demand should the carrier fail to offer policy limits. The defendant's attorney adamantly persuaded them to litigate, however, our attorney's threats of litigation, past track record, and incredibly aggressive pre-litigation actions convinced the insurance carrier to disregard their own attorney's advice and to settle the case, lest they face our attorneys in court. Had our clients been represented by virtually any other firm who did not have our specific track record or who would have not recognized that this case required special and immediate attention coupled with an abnormally aggressive stance, the clients would have certainly been tied up in litigation for years, with the limited supply of funds rapidly depleting since the other claimants who did not need to litigate would have essentially had right of first refusal.

WRONGFUL DEATH / FIRST-PARTY DRAM SHOP

(policy limits) A young woman lost her life after a bar over-served her to more than three times the legal limit resulting in her burning to death in a single-vehicle accident. Witnesses stated that she was so intoxicated that she could barely make it to her vehicle without assistance. The bar denied any wrongdoing and claimed that they could not tell that she was intoxicated. The evidence and medical science illustrated that they were lying. Someone, a young person, no less, is not able to conceal such a high degree of intoxication. Suspecting that the bar was not being truthful, we filed suit and began litigating against them. Through discovery, our attorneys learned of all employees who were working on the night in question. Eventually, we found an employee who had moved on to another job, and was therefore not part of the litigation, meaning we were within our rights to talk to that person outside of the presence of the bar's attorneys. When we interviewed her, she explained that the young woman was not only obviously intoxicated, but that she was so drunk that she needed assistance to get to her car. Once we found the necessary evidence to prove that the establishment provided alcohol to an obviously intoxicated person, we pressed forward with the case and the defendants eventually settled.

BRAIN INJURY / PREMISES LIABILITY

Our attorneys sued an apartment complex in relation to a brain injury sustained by a toddler when he fell through a balcony railing. The apartment complex denied liability, asserted that their railings were in spec at the time of the building's construction (some 20 years prior), and they claimed that the child's mother was contributorily negligent in that she did not notice that her child was playing near the railing. Through litigation, our attorneys countered the defendant's arguments by showing that the case law does not support the notion of any safety related concerns in the building code being "grandfathered" in. On the contrary, a property owner has an obligation to keep safety features such as balcony railings within the specs at all times. The railings in this complex were spaced at 7 inch intervals, which was at odds with the now-standard 4 inch interval. Additionally, our attorneys countered the claims of contributory negligence as a practical matter in that the mother was indeed monitoring the child's activity and the child literally ran up to the railing and immediately fell through the rails. Alternatively, we argued that the doctrine of parental immunity applied and that the contributory negligence, if any such negligence ever even occurred, of the mother would not be admissible. The case was satisfactorily resolved through litigation.

WRONGFUL DEATH / FIRST-PARTY DRAM SHOP

Our firm was hired by the minor child and parents of a young man who was killed in a motorcycle accident after being over served alcohol at a South Padre Island bar. The plaintiffs hired our firm to investigate the claim on the basis that the decedent was over the legal limit at the time of his death. In initial attempts to settle the case out of court, the defendants denied liability. Suit was filed soon thereafter. The defendants initially argued that the decedent never consumed alcohol on their premises. Through physical evidence and deposition testimony to the contrary, we were able to conclusively prove that the decedent had indeed been drinking at the establishment. The defendants then asserted allegations that the decedent's minor child was not actually his biological child, which would bar his claim entirely. A DNA test was performed and this argument was defeated. The defendants then asserted the safe harbor defense. Our attorneys argued that the defendants did not qualify for safe harbor protection due to the fact that their servers were not all licensed providers. However, while this element was being addressed, our attorneys focused their attention on addressing the second element of the safe harbor defense regarding the bar's encouragement of the over service of alcohol. The defendants claimed that they would never serve the double-shot Bacardi cocktails that witnesses claimed the decedent drank several of. We sent private investigators into the bar to order the same drinks that the decedent consumed on the night of his death and the very same bar tenders who over served the decedent, without hesitation, served copious amounts of alcohol to the investigators, all of which was captured on hidden camera. Once the safe harbor defense was defeated, the defendants argued that the decedent's BAC was low enough at the time of his death (as recorded by the hospital) that he would not have necessarily appeared obviously intoxicated to the servers and therefore the bar should not be held liable even if he had been over served. Eyewitness testimony refuted this.

This testimony proved to be pivotal in the case, resulting in a successful recovery for our clients.

A loading dock worker suffered serious including numerous facial fractures and minor brain trauma when an 18-wheeler backed into him, crushing him against the loading dock. The plaintiff's employer was a subscriber to Texas Workers' Compensation coverage, thus a claim was rightly filed against the third party trucking company whom the truck driver operating the reversing 18-wheeler worked for. The plaintiffs asserted the position that the trucking company in question was liable on the basis of respondeat superior and negligent retention. The defendants argued that the plaintiff was the sole proximate cause of his injuries by virtue of the plaintiff putting himself in harms way. They maintained that the plaintiff simply walked behind the reversing tractor trailer as it pushed back toward the loading dock. It was later determined through deposition testimony that the truck driver had indeed instructed the plaintiff to stand behind the trailer in order to determine the vehicle's proximity to the dock. Once this fact came to light, the defendants agreed to mediation, whereby the case was satisfactorily settled.

ELECTRIC SHOCK AND PARTIAL AMPUTATION / WORKPLACE ACCIDENT

Our firm was hired to represent a technician who sustained an electric shock while working in proximity to a power line. The incident occurred while the worker was under contract with a subsidiary of General Electric as he worked to install wireless transmission devices on various utility poles throughout the Houston area. The employer, a non subscriber to Texas Workers' Compensation, furnished our client with equipment and training to perform this specific task. However, the equipment provided was lacking in safety consideration and ultimately caused him to sustain a significant injury when electricity surged through his equipment and his body. He sustained small burns at the point where the electricity entered his body and a significant burn on one of his toes where the current exited, the latter of which resulted in partial amputation of a toe. The defendants initially claimed that they were not liable since our client worked for a temp agency. We provided case law and samples of our own past cases that supported our arguments with regard to borrowed servants and non-subscriber liability. The defendants ultimately accepted liability, but attempted to claim that no other compensation was necessary since our client had received workers' compensation benefits and, according to them, his injuries were minor. We illustrated that, on the contrary, our client's injuries, although not life threatening, did result in minor disfigurement and considerable pain and suffering. To support this contention, we introduced physical evidence, photographs, accompanying statements from physicians and witnesses, and numerous other supporting documents into evidence. The claim was successfully resolved soon thereafter.

The defendants ultimately accepted liability, but attempted to claim that no other compensation was necessary since our client had received workers' compensation benefits and, according to them, his injuries were minor. We illustrated that, on the contrary, our client's injuries, although not life threatening, did result in minor disfigurement and considerable pain and suffering. To support this contention, we introduced physical evidence, photographs, accompanying statements from physicians and witnesses, and numerous other supporting documents into evidence. The claim was successfully resolved soon thereafter.

WRONGFUL DEATH / COMMERCIAL VEHICLE ACCIDENT

(policy limits) A young mother was killed in an accident involving two commercial vehicles, one an 18-wheeler. The accident occurred as the young woman was a passenger in a vehicle that was traveling down a highway in the early morning hours. Without warning, the vehicle in which she was a passenger collided with a stalled 18-wheeler that had parked in the right of way, resulting in catastrophic injuries that claimed the young woman's life soon thereafter. The authorities initially faulted the driver of the vehicle in which the victim was a passenger, stating that he was using an electronic device rather than paying full attention to the roadway. However, the 18-wheeler was indeed blocking the roadway and plaintiff alleged that the vehicle did not follow the requirements of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration with regarding adequate reflective or laminated warning tape at specific intervals. Further, the plaintiffs alleged that the defendant failed to remove his vehicle from the roadway when he first noticed signs of mechanical failure. Had he simply moved to the shoulder of the road, plaintiffs argued, his lack of adequate warning signs would have been inconsequential. An initial settlement has been obtained in this case, yet litigation has commenced in full against the remaining defendant, and is currently ongoing.

WRONGFUL DEATH / COMMERCIAL VEHICLE ACCIDENT

Our attorneys were hired to investigate a fatal motor vehicle accident involving an 18-wheeler that claimed the lives of several men. the family of one in particular, which our firm represented, felt that the official version of events, as outlined in the police report, was not an accurate portrayal of the facts and circumstances of the collision. Our firm launched an investigation, the findings of which served as the basis for a subsequent lawsuit. We were able to determine that the defendant's accusations of contributory negligence against the driver of the passenger vehicle did appear to be valid and plaintiffs conceded as much. However, the plaintiffs were adamant that the contributory negligence did not entirely overshadow the negligence of the defendant truck driver. Through physical evidence and an admission of liability that our attorneys were able to obtain from the defendant under oath, we were able to show that the defendant had indeed pulled into the path of the decedent's vehicle, which was the key fact, irrespective of the decedent's own contributory negligence, and which allowed us to successfully resolve the case.

SHOULDER INJURY REQUIRING SURGERY / WORKPLACE ACCIDENT

Our attorneys were hired by a delivery driver who sustained a serious shoulder injury when a worker for a third party negligently operated a fork lift. The accident occurred as the plaintiff delivered a load of hay bales to a commercial farm. An employee of said facility attempted to unload the trailer with a forklift. In doing so, he pushed several bales of hay off of the flatbed, over the side opposite the forklift. Consequently, several of the 400 lb (est.) bales of hay struck the plaintiff who was working to disconnect tie downs on the opposite side of the trailer. This resulted in serious injury to the plaintiff's shoulder. The defendants took an aggressive stance and denied the claim, asserting that the plaintiff was the sole proximate cause of his own injuries by virtue of the fact that he was standing in a known dangerous area. Suit was filed soon thereafter. Our attorneys argued that the plaintiff's ordinary work duties, and indeed the normal protocol for all flatbed delivery drivers, consists of letting loose the materials to be unloaded. We maintained that the true cause of the plaintiff's injuries was that the forklift operator rushed into unloading the trailer. Furthermore, the manner in which he unloaded the trailer was itself a contributing element of the defendant's negligence. The forks that were incorporated into the forklift in question were not compatible with stabbing hay bails; they were ordinary forks that were designed to be positioned below a heavy object that was to be lifted. The case was successfully resolved in mediation.

Our client was injured in a motor vehicle accident when an employer driving a company vehicle failed to yield the right of way and collided with the plaintiff's vehicle. The defendant's employer was sued for negligence soon thereafter. The defendants alleged that the company should not be held liable for the actions of the employee. They claimed that the employee was not in the course and scope of his employment at the time of the accident. Through discovery, our attorneys learned that the defendants had a policy, both written and implied, whereby employees of the company were allowed to drive work vehicles after hours. Furthermore, our attorneys argued case law that expanded the definition of course and scope which showed that the defendant was indeed "on the clock" when the accident occurred. As a result, the defendants conceded liability and turned their defenses toward the alleged damages. They claimed that our client had a preexisting condition that was responsible for her current state. We deposed the emergency room physician who assessed the client and recommended surgery regarding the medical necessity of the surgical procedure and the proximate cause of the plaintiff's condition. He testimony unequivocally defeated these arguments. The case was satisfactorily resolved through litigation.

CLOSED HEAD INJURY / PREMISES LIABILITY

The mother of a child who suffered a head injury when he fell from an apartment complex balcony in Houston, TX hired our firm to pursue the negligent defendant. The incident occurred as the toddler was playing on the balcony of his mother's apartment and a vertical railing came loose as the child leaned against it. The wooden railing had rotted through, despite its appearing intact when viewed from a distance. The defendants denied liability, claiming that the mother of the child was negligent in her lack of supervision. Additionally, they claimed that the apartment was in good condition and that all of their railings were properly constructed. Suit was filed soon thereafter. Through deposition testimony, it was established that their argument regarding the mother's alleged lack of supervision was indeed false; she was on the balcony with her child when the incident occurred and the entire incident unfolded in her immediate line of sight. Furthermore, we asserted the Parental Immunity Doctrine which clearly refutes such defenses. Additionally, an on-site inspection revealed that the apartment complex was in general disrepair, contrary to the defendant's assertions. During this inspection, numerous other broken or loose railings were discovered. A maintenance technician confirmed that the apartment complex was in the process of slowly replacing the railings at the time that the incident occurred and that the defendants did not provide maintenance personnel with an adequate budget to resolve these safety issues in a timely fashion. The case was successfully resolved through litigation.
