Case Conclusion Date: July 27, 2009
Practice Area: Car / Auto Accident
Outcome: $650,000 Settlement
Description: Melissa Davis, a 25 year old bartender and mother of a young child, was in the parking lot of the Lone Star Oyster Bar on 34th Street in Lubbock when she was run over by a vehicle owned by a major midwest communication company and operated by one of its employees. Melissa received severe bruising, which turned into a severe staph infection, requiring extensive hospitalization and lengthy recovery time. Discovery revealed that the driver, who was arrested for DWI at the scene of the accident, had a prior history of alcohol related incidents, and that the company was aware of this but hired him anyway. We were proud to be able to have a such a great result for this young woman and her child.
