Accidents - Verdict in favor of Plaintiff in the amount of US$3,350,000
|Case Name:||Thomas M. East and Laura A. East v. Oakley Trucking, Inc. and David Henefield|
|Court:||73rd Bexar County District Court in Bexar County, Texas.|
Plaintiff Thomas East, a 37-year-old customer service representative, was driving his pickup truck on Christmas Eve, 2014, in the San Antonio area when the collision occurred. Impact by David Henefield' tractor-trailer caused East' pickup to flip to its roof. East refused a medical transport at the scene but visited an urgent care facility later that night.
Injury, Damage, or Loss:
Herniated disk at L4-L5, herniated disk at C5-C6, mild traumatic brain injury, depression, post-concussive syndrome
East and his wife, Laura East, sued Oakley Trucking and Henefield individually. The couple claimed East had slowed for traffic when Henefield failed to pay attention and control his speed. Plaintiffs' attorney Ryan H. Zehl, a member of The National Trial Lawyers Top 100, argued that police investigators found Henefield' inattention and distraction caused the collision. Oakley Trucking' safety director agreed Henefield was distracted, and Henefield admitted he was following East too closely.
