2012 $11,900,000.00 Electrocuted Worker Burn Injury Settlement Worker was severely shocked in an industrial accident. The worker was assisting another employee on a manlift about 30 feet in the air when the other worker steered too close to a 34 kv power line. The resulting shock caused burn injuries and an extended period of oxygen deprivation to our client. He suffered irreversible brain damage, and requires 24 hour per day monitoring. He sustained significant short term and long term memory problems, and permanent disabled. After a lawsuit was filed, the case was ordered to arbitration pursuant to an employee benefit policy. After extensive discovery and depositions, and after the excess carrier tried to get out of their obligations by trying to void their insurance policy in Federal Court, the case settled on the eve of arbitration for $11,900,000. (Per Texas Bar disclosure requirements, the attorney fees on the case were $3,966,666.27 and case expenses were $213,253.55.) Lead Counsel: Keith M. Fletcher Second Chair: Christopher K. Fletcher 2015 $955,000.00 Slip and Fall Accident Premises Liability Settlement Romo v Lopez Corp. A female restaurant patron slipped and fell on a lime slice at a Mexican restaurant. It was believed the lime slice fell from a serverâ€™s tray and was left on the floor until the Plaintiff fell. The medical bills totaled $205,034.49. (Per Texas Bar disclosure requirements, the attorneys fees on the case were $381,666.67 and the expenses totaled $48,449.78.) Lead Counsel: Keith M. Fletcher 2015 $300,000.00 Dog Bite Settlement Alexander v. Smart. While playing outside in his neighborhood with his sister and friends, a young boy was attacked by a neighborâ€™s pit bull. The neighbor has recently purchased the pit bull as a guard dog after someone had burglarized their home. The neighborâ€™s child brought the dog outside on a leash but tripped over the thresh hold of the doorway and let the dog loose. The dog attacked our client, biting him about he head and sides of the face. A good samaritan driving by stopped and pried the dogs jaws off of the boyâ€™s head. The attack resulted in numerous stitches to the scalp and some scarring around the sides of the face. Medical expenses for emergency care totaled $10,018.60 after medicaid payments. After filing a lawsuit and conducting some necessary discovery, Paul Cannon made a time-limited demand to the defendantâ€™s homeownerâ€™s insurance company demanding that they pay their full policy limits of $300,000.00 to settle the case. Defendantâ€™s opted to accept the demand rather than go to trial. (Per state bar disclosure requirements the attorney fees were $100,000.00 and expenses were $1,480.74.) Lead Counsel: Paul H. Cannon 2015 $1,264,113.60 18-Wheeler Truck Accident Settlement In a difficult case involving an 18 wheeler truck crash that resulted in serious injuries, Simmons & Fletcher was able to secure a $1,264,113.60 settlement on behalf of our injured client. On a Texas interstate, our client was badly injured when his minivan was rear-ended by a commercial motor vehicle. The investigating police officer determined that our client was stopped in the moving lanes of travel (rather than on the shoulder as the law requires) and therefore blamed him alone for causing the resulting accident involving the 18 wheeler. Despite this police report that would cause most attorneys to not take on the case, Simmons & Fletcher aggressively and quickly began litigation on behalf of our seriously injured client and, by doing our own investigation with the help of a team of experts, determined that the tractor trailer was in fact responsible for negligently causing the avoidable wreck. Simmons & Fletcher discovered that the truck driver failed to act as a professional driver and, if the truck driver had been driving defensively and according to the rules of the road, the 18 wheeler could have easily avoided crashing into our client. Furthermore, Simmons & Fletcher uncovered evidence that proved the commercial motor carrier, the truck driverâ€™s employer, knew or should have known that their driver was dangerous to the public and should not have allowed him behind the wheel of their 18 wheeler. Our client suffered serious fractures to his knee and both forearms which required immediate surgeries to repair. He also suffered a cut on his head. Unfortunately, after the initial surgeries, one of our clientâ€™s arms became infected which caused him to suffer tremendous and constant pain for months. In the end, our clientâ€™s medical bills amounted to over $100,000. (Per Texas Bar disclosure requirements, the attorney fees on the case were $492,644.63 and case expenses were $14,806.72.)
