Terry v. Lawrence

Randell C. Roberts

Practice Area:Trucking Accident

Outcome:Favorable

Description:In this case, Roberts & Roberts persuaded the Texas Supreme Court to adopt a pro-consumer construction of the rules of discovery in civil lawsuits. Roberts & Roberts’ construction had been rejected in the trial court as well as the intermediate appellate court. Until this Texas Supreme Court ruling, accident victims were unable to compel insurance companies or negligent defendants to produce their photographs of accident scenes (even though the accident victims might be incapacitated by their injuries and unable to take their own timely photographs).
