Smith County Texas Jury Awards Damages In Auto Accident

We tried another jury trial in Smith County this week. The case involved some pretty serious injuries arising out of a car wreck that occurred when the Defendant blew a stop sign and ran out into a highway. The impact was severe. The Defendants auto liability insurance company made a lowball offer and dug in. So many lawyers these days won’t go to trial and end up taking the insurance companies’ lowball offers that the insurance companies have gotten pretty arrogant in Texas. They called my office right before trial and told me that we should take their last offer. I guess being hard headed has its’ advantages because a Smith County jury awarded us more than seven times what the insurance company had offered. It was a good day for the good guys!
