An 18 wheeler rear-ends another 18 wheeler in Pointe Coupee Parish, Louisiana. Plaintiff was a resident of Miami, Florida. After undergoing neck, back, and shoulder surgery, the defendants settled the case 60 days before trial for $2,267,879.37.
$2,000,000 - Death of Mother
Client pulled out from stop sign and was "t-boned" by a police car traveling 85 m.p.h. because the officer was late for roll call. Suit filed against the city police department and the gas station near the site of the accident. Gas station's signs had blocked the view of the road which contributed to the accident. A jury found that the gas station was 80% at fault while the police officer was found to be 20% at fault. Case was offered to be settled for $350,000.00 but a jury awarded the client $2,000,000.00 after trial.

The electric line violated the National Electric Safety Code (NESC) and the protective insulation was worn off. Entergy of Louisiana claimed that the deceased son had 50% fault even though Entergy is considered a superior actor.
