$300,000.00 Dog Bite Settlement

While playing outside in his neighborhood with his sister and friends, a young boy was attacked by a pit bull belonging to a neighbor. The neighbor has recently purchased the pit bull as a guard dog after someone had burglarized their home. The neighbor’s child brought the dog outside on a leash but tripped over the thresh hold of the doorway and let the dog loose. The dog attacked our client, biting him about the head and sides of his face. A good Samaritan driving by stopped and pried the dog’s jaws off of the boy’s head. The attack resulted in numerous stitches to the scalp and some scarring around the sides of the face. Total medical expenses for emergency care were $10,018.60 after Medicaid payments. After filing a lawsuit and conducting some necessary discovery, Paul Cannon made a time-limited demand to the defendant’s homeowner’s insurance company demanding that they pay their full policy limits of $300,000.00 to settle the case. The Defendants opted to accept the demand of our personal injury law firm. Houston is where the case took place. Attorney fees were $100,000.00 and expenses were $1,480.74.

$1,264,113.60 18-Wheeler Truck Accident Settlement

In a difficult case involving an 18-wheeler truck crash that resulted in serious injuries, Simmons & Fletcher, P.C. was able to secure a $1,264,113.60 settlement on behalf of our injured client. On a Texas interstate, our client was badly injured when his minivan was rear-ended by a commercial motor vehicle. The investigating police officer determined that our client was stopped in the moving lanes of travel (rather than on the shoulder as the law requires) and therefore blamed him alone for causing the resulting accident involving the 18-wheeler. Despite this unfavorable police report, our Houston truck accident lawyers aggressively and quickly began litigation on behalf of our seriously injured client and, by doing our investigation with the help of a team of experts, determined that the tractor-trailer was responsible for negligently causing the avoidable wreck. Christopher K. Fletcher discovered that the truck driver failed to act as a professional driver and that if the truck driver had been driving defensively and according to the rules of the road, the 18-wheeler could have easily avoided crashing into our client. Furthermore, Mr. Fletcher uncovered evidence that proved the commercial motor carrier, the trucking companies involved knew or should have known that their driver was dangerous to the public and should not have allowed him behind the wheel of their 18-wheeler. Our client suffered serious fractures to his knee and both forearms which required immediate surgeries to repair. He also suffered a cut on his head. Unfortunately, after the initial surgeries, one of our client’s arms became infected which caused him to suffer tremendous and constant pain for months. In the end, our client’s medical bills amounted to over $100,000. Attorney fees on the case were $492,644.63 and case expenses were $14,806.72.
