TYLER TEXAS PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEYS DZWL OBTAIN SUBSTANTIAL CONFIDENTIAL SETTLEMENT
August 11th, 2015 by dzwlaw
Derryberry Zips Wade Lawhorn, PLLC successfully negotiated a substantial confidential settlement in the high six figures for our female client who was involved in a violent rear end wreck with a ¬†large oil field service truck in Corpus Christi, Texas.¬† The oil field service company hired a 23 year old employee and allowed him to permissively operate a company truck without performing any background check on him or providing him any driver training. A simple check of his driving record would have revealed a prior conviction for driving while intoxicated less than two (2) years prior to the company hiring him. ¬†The young employee violently slammed into the back of our client‚Äôs vehicle as a result of being distracted while driving the truck. ¬†Additionally, his cell phone records contained information indicating he was likely on the phone at the time of the violent wreck. ¬†This violent wreck caused our client to sustain significant injuries and and also resulted in her vehicle being declared a total loss.¬† Our client sustained injuries, including a broken arm, injuries to her thighs, mild traumatic brain injury and herniated disks in her neck for which her treating neurosurgeon recommended surgery.¬† She had not had the surgery at the time the case was resolved in July, 2015.
