Practice Area: Trucking Accident

Outcome: $2,750,000 Verdict

Description: On the morning of December 27th, 2001, Daniel Hancock, was traveling towards the intersection of Scenic Highway and Webb Gin House Road in Gwinnett County Georgia. As Mr. Hancock approached the intersection my client, Justin Brooks, was preparing to turn left onto Webb Gin House Road. Justin was in the middle of his turn when Mr. Hancock collided into the passenger side of Justin's vehicle. The force of the collision was so violent that it virtually demolished the passenger side of Justin's vehicle before pushing it another forty-five feet into another vehicle.The Defense and police faulted Justin Brooks for turning left in front of Mr. Hancock and there was evidence that my client had been smoking marijuana prior the wreck, however, defendants offered $100,000 to settle before trial. Despite the defendant's contentions, a Coweta County jury took only one hour to award Mr. Brooks family $2,750,000.,
