$4,000,000 - Accident with Commercial Vehicle - The case involved an accident that occurred in Philadelphia, MS between the Client, a Philadelphia teenager, and a Sears service truck. At the scene of the accident, the driver of the Sears van claimed to have been traveling south on Highway 15 (the road that had the right of way) and claimed that the Client ran a stop sign on Highway 485 and caused the accident. In addition to numerous fractures and injuries, the Client suffered a traumatic brain injury and had no recollection of the accident.
Following the accident, one witness came forward with details that actually would have placed the Client on Highway 15 with the right of way instead of Highway 485, as was claimed by the Sears driver. An investigation undertaken by The Hamilton Law Firm uncovered additional witnesses that had details about how the accident occurred. At trial, several witnesses testified that the Client was actually the driver that was traveling on Highway 15 just prior to the accident and would have had the right of way. One witness actually saw the Sears driver run through a stop sign on Highway 485 and cause the accident. The jury ultimately determined that the Sears driver had fabricated his version of events at the scene of the accident and that he was the party that ran the stop sign on Highway 485 and caused the accident -- not the Client.
The jury returned a verdict of $4 Million, which is one of the largest verdicts ever handed down in a case tried in Lauderdale County. The verdict was 20 times higher than the last settlement offer made by Sears.
