After unsuccessful attempts to negotiate a settlement in a motor vehicle accident injury claim, Bailey & Galyen’s personal injury team took its case to a judge and jury (48th Judicial District Tarrant County, Texas), receiving a $794,127 verdict for a woman who suffered serious injury in a car wreck. The client was riding with her husband in Tarrant County when the defendant slammed into the rear of their car, propelling them into the vehicle in front of them. As a result of the collision, our client sustained serious and debilitating injuries requiring long-term medical care. Police investigators concluded that the defendant was distracted at the time of the crash, but did not disclose why he was not paying attention to the road in front of him. Though the defendant’s responsibility was clear, his insurance provider refused to settle the claim, leading to the trial.
