The Carlson Law Firm Personal Injury Attorneys, Steve Dummitt and Michael Erskine, helped a car crash victim resolve a case just prior to trial for a confidential, but substantial settlement.
The client was involved in a collision with a driver operating a company vehicle. The victim is an older gentleman who underwent spinal surgery due to the severity of his injuries.
According to court documents, the defendant disputed both the liability, claiming that the collision was unavoidable and that the injuries were not caused by the crash. The defense specifically focused the plaintiff’s advanced age and “inconsistent” medical treatment as the primary factors in his injuries.
“Most Texas law firms would not have taken our client’s case because he did not seek medical attention for more than two weeks after the crash. Through his and others’ testimony, we were able to navigate past this issue to our client’s benefit,” said attorney Steve Dummitt.
Despite the resources of the defendant company, The Carlson Law Firm attorneys were able to build the case.
“Over the past five or six years, there has been a significant increase in company vehicles on Texas roads,” said attorney Mike Erskine. “Unfortunately, our client’s life is changed from this crash.”
