Dallas, Texas – A Dallas County jury awarded a $2 million verdict to a young Colorado woman who suffered significant life-changing injuries from a car accident in Texas in 2016. The Dallas law firm of Franklin D. Azar & Associates and C. Kyle Pugh PC represented the plaintiff.
In May 2016, the plaintiff was injured in a collision at an intersection in Irving, Texas. An officer cited the defendant’s driver for failing to yield the right of way. While a doctor initially diagnosed her with a neck strain and other injuries, Plaintiff soon developed pain in her back, abdomen, and hips. A doctor eventually diagnosed these injuries as labral tears in her hips. She has had reconstructive hip surgery since the collision. As a result of her injuries, she faces additional surgeries and medical treatments.
In addition to C. Kyle Pugh PC in Dallas, Azar senior attorney DezaRae LaCrue represented the plaintiff. The lawyers faced several complications during the case. While the other driver admitted responsibility for the accident, the defendant’s legal team disputed the severity of the plaintiff’s injuries and how they affected her ability to lead an active life. In addition, scheduling delayed the trial more than once.
In response to the defendant’s tactics, LaCrue and the rest of the prosecution’s legal team provided compelling expert testimony about the nature of the victim’s injuries. They also provided information about how the car accident caused those injuries and detailed information about the likelihood that the claimant would need further medical treatment.
The jury’s award includes approximately $290,000 in past medical expenses, $1.2 million to address future medical needs, and additional amounts related to pain and suffering, disability, and loss of earning power. While the case presented numerous legal challenges and scheduling hurdles, plaintiff’s legal counsel obtained a judgment of approximately $2 million on behalf of the plaintiff.
“This was a challenging case,” LaCrue stated. “Despite being quite injured, our client still managed to lead a fairly normal life. But the case revolved around whether her injuries were related to the crash, and the jury ruled that it was.”
For more than 30 years, the law firm has obtained judgments that have awarded billions of dollars on behalf of its plaintiffs in large-scale and complex cases across the state and across the country. The team is unparalleled in its ability to effectively defend its clients so that they can receive full and fair compensation for their injuries.
