$1,280,000 Recovery In Houston Trucking Accident

Houston trucking accidents are serious cases that often result in significant injuries and even death. Scott C. Krist has a great deal of experience in handling these types of cases. Recently, four passengers were traveling in a large vehicle down a four lane highway when an 18-wheeler proceeded to make a legal U-turn, blocking both lanes of oncoming traffic. In an attempt to avoid a probable collision with the 18-wheeler, the driver instantly veered right, but, unfortunately, struck a concrete loading dock with considerable force.

$2,200,000 Awarded To Plaintiff Involved In Houston Trucking Accident

A Texas resident was driving to Florida when he was suddenly rear-ended by an 18-wheeler commercial truck. The truck driver drove through a black cloud of smoke on the highway and as he drove through it, rear-ended our client. Our client, an undocumented Mexican national, was determined to sue the truck driver for negligence. The man requested the legal services of Scott C. Krist as he headed into the trial.

The same week, the Immigration Reform Bill failed and contributed heavily to our case. Due to our client’s illegal status at the time of the incident, the defense attempted to have his loss of earning capacity claim dismissed. The court chose to overrule this, and our client was awarded $2,200,000 in this Houston trucking accident case with an attorney fee of 40%.

Head-On Collision Causes Memory Loss, Other Injuries, $4,750,000 Recovery

Scott C. Krist recently helped a woman who suffered from multiple fractures to both her femurs, her foot and pelvis, a lacerated spleen and liver, a permanent traumatic brain injury, and a TMJ injury after being involved in a serious head-on collision with a professional tree servicing company truck.

Both drivers, enduring the disastrous force, had no memory of the accident or what happened moments leading up to it. Unfortunately, there were no witnesses around when the auto accident occurred. The only evidence to go off of were the skid marks on the road, to determine who was at fault for this traumatic collision.

After analyzing the impact from the road markings, it was later determined that this major truck accident in Houston occurred in our client’s lane, therefore proving the truck driver had caused the incident. With that, our client saw a recovery of $4,750,000. Case expenses totaled $42,166.26 with an attorney fee of 40%.

$1,500,000 Recovery After Negligent Fall Results In Spinal Fusion

A UPS driver was left with a herniated disc and fractured vertebrae after a scheduled pick-up at a Texas university bookstore accident. A bookstore employee was found acting negligently when he activated a pallet jack to load the books into the delivery truck. Consequently, the jack hit our client in the back of the legs, causing him to fall. A spinal fusion was ultimately required to repair the painful injuries he suffered from the fall. With a tremendous amount of medical expenses adding up, our dedicated team of Houston personal injury lawyers responded in a prompt manner and devoted their time to finding a solution. We recovered $1,500,000 in this case. Case expenses totaled $16,495.32 with an attorney fee of 40%.
