Acuerdo 2015 $ 300,000.00 Mordedura de perro

Mientras jugaba afuera en su vecindario con su hermana y sus amigos, un niño era atacado por un pitbull 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 he head and sides of the face. A good samaritan driving by stopped and pried the dogs 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. Medical expenses for emergency care totalled $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. Defendant’s opted to accept the demand rather than go to trial. Los honorarios de los abogados fueron $ 100,000.00 y los gastos fueron de $ 1,480.74.

2015 $ 1,264,113.60 18-Wheeler Truck Accident Settlement

En un caso difícil que involucra un accidente de camión de ruedas 18 que resultó en lesiones graves, Simmons & Fletcher, PC pudo asegurar un acuerdo $ 1,264,113.60 en nombre de nuestro cliente lesionado.

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 police report that would cause most attorneys to not take on the case, our 18 wheeler accident attorneys, aggressively and quickly began litigation on behalf of our seriously injured client and, by doing our own investigation with the help of a team of experts, determined that the tractor trailer was in fact responsible for negligently causing the avoidable wreck. Christopher K. Fletcher discovered that the truck driver failed to act as a professional driver and, 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 truck driver’s employer, 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.
