Until your case is resolved, you may have no idea what the possible outcomes could be. While we can’t guarantee a particular result for you, by reading about similar cases and how they were resolved, you can begin to understand what may be possible with your case.

Speeding Driver Loses Control and Strikes Family Vehicle

A driver operating his vehicle with excessive speed in bad weather lost control and struck the vehicle of our clients, a family. Our clients suffered severe, though fortunately not life-threatening, injuries as a result of the crash.

College Student Spinout Costs the Life of Beloved Matriarch

The matriarch of a Texas family lost her life due to the poor decisions of a college student who was driving too fast for the weather conditions. A young driver’s sports car spun out of control, crossed over the highway divide, and entered directly into a grandmother’s lane of travel. There was nothing that she could have done to avoid the collision. Many times, it’s not the damage caused by the accident, but the aftermath of losing a cherished family member that hurts the most.

Excessive Speeding Causes Red Light Collision

Our client was on the way to visit family. While stopped at a red light in Weatherford, Texas, the defendant’s vehicle struck hers at high speed. 

Negligent Driver Causes Serious Injury to Grandmother

Our client, a grandmother, suffered injury to her left upper arm and right gluteus maximus in an auto accident. Although she underwent surgery for her injuries, she had difficulty walking afterwards, and trouble sleeping at night. The other driver was found to be negligent and responsible for both the accident and injury to our client.

Oil Field Tanker Crosses Line and Causes Accident

The defendant was the driver of an oil field tanker truck anxious to get “off the clock” when his truck crossed the center line of the road. His trailer entered the oncoming traffic lane and struck a car, causing our client to suffer multiple lacerations, bruising, and soft tissue injuries.

Drivers Held Responsible for Death of Motorcyclist

A husband, father, and family provider was riding his motorcycle on the way to his first day of a new job when the dangerous decisions of the driver of a sedan and an 18-wheeler ended his life. Everyone pointed fingers at one another, but in the end, all parties involved in the accident were held responsible for the wrongful death of this young man.

Negligent Driver Causes Serious Injury to Grandmother

Our client, a grandmother, suffered injury to her left upper arm and right gluteus maximus in an auto accident. Although she underwent surgery for her injuries, she had difficulty walking afterwards, and trouble sleeping at night. The other driver was found to be negligent and responsible for both the accident and injury to our client.

Negligent Driver Struck Car and Injured Mother

Just outside of Cleburne, Texas, a negligent driver pulled out in front of a mother who had just picked her children up from school. Thankfully, the children were properly secured and not injured, but their mother was hurt, and she received medical care as a result of the accident.

Mother Gets Substantial Damages in Distracted Driving Crash

On September 11, 2015, our 42-year-old client drove her three children to school in Granbury, Texas, as she did most weekdays. Unfortunately, this turned out to be far different from a normal school day. After she dropped her middle child off at school, she was driving in the nearby school zone when a distracted teen driver hit her vehicle on the driver’s side in a T-bone accident. The negligent driver was 17 years old and a newly licensed driver who was believed to be texting and talking to friends in his vehicle instead of paying attention to his driving.

Our Client Suffers Permanent Ankle and Shoulder Injuries
 
Our client was taken to the hospital by ambulance where she was treated for a broken right ankle and a rotator cuff injury to her left shoulder. While she was released to go home, she needed an additional 15 months of a variety of treatments that included rotator cuff surgery, physical therapy, and pain medication. Even with her extensive medical care, she did not fully recover. Our client needs periodic medical treatment and medications to manage the lingering pain in both her ankle and shoulder.
 
This accident dramatically impacted our client’s life. She came home from the hospital after the collision with only the use of her left leg and right arm and hand. Because of the painful injury to her left rotator cuff, she could not use two crutches to get around. She was forced to use one crutch and a walker to move around throughout her busy days.
 
Taking care of her three children was especially challenging during the first eight months after the accident when she was the least mobile. Her husband worked in the oil fields and was only home on the weekends to take care of her and their children. Neither he nor our client had any family in the nearby area to help.
 
Our client tried to take care of her children and the household, but often found this impossible due to her pain and lack of mobility. She was unable to be very involved in her kids’ school and sports activities like she had been in the past. Even after her initial 15 months of treatment was completed, she has been unable to participate in her children’s lives as she would like because of the chronic pain in her ankle and shoulder.
Brett Cain’s Willingness to Take Our Client’s Case to Trial Convinced the Negligent Driver’s Insurance Company to Settle Her Claim
 
Although the negligent driver was most likely texting when he caused our client’s injuries, his insurance company tried to hide behind the fact that he was a 17-year old driver. In Texas, a negligent party’s insurance policy cannot be disclosed to a jury at trial, and the driver’s insurance adjuster argued that no jury would award our client what her case was worth given the teen’s age. In addition, the adjuster disputed our client’s injuries, arguing that they were not as serious as she claimed and that her medical treatment—which was necessary—was too expensive.
Brett Cain did not give up. When the insurance company would not be reasonable, he filed a lawsuit against the negligent driver. He also thoroughly prepared our client’s case for trial while continuing to try to reach a settlement. He subpoenaed her doctors for depositions and obtained their testimony proving the long-term effects of her injuries and the need for future medical care.
Fortunately, our client contacted Mr. Cain soon after the crash, and he quickly hired an accident reconstruction expert. This expert was able to download the black box data from both vehicles and reconstruct the crash to prove that the other driver’s distracted driving was the sole cause of it and that our client was not at all negligent. Seeing that Brett Cain would take our client’s case to trial rather than accept the insurance company’s too-low offers, the adjuster settled our client’s claim for a substantial confidential settlement.
While the money she received will never take away the pain our client experiences or give her back the time she missed with her family, it will help her with the medical expenses she will need in the future and will pay for one of her child’s college expenses.

Negligent Truck Driver Held Responsible for Serious Injuries

The driver of an oil field 18-wheeler truck caused a collision in a Texas town by failing to yield the right-of-way at a stop sign, striking our client’s vehicle. The truck driver claimed that he was not negligent, but we were able to prove otherwise. Our client’s injuries included neck, arm, shoulder, and back pain, including two herniated disks at C5-6 and C6-7 that required surgery to repair.

Client Obtains Favorable Award After a Drunk Driving Wreck

The Christmas holiday season is supposed to be a joyous time spent with family and friends. Unfortunately, our 38-year-old client’s 2013 holiday was cut short by a drunk driver. Our client—a father of four—was driving for his job on Highway 51 in Weatherford, Texas, around lunchtime on December 26, 2013. A routine work day turned into a nightmare when a drunk driver crossed the center line of the highway and smashed into our client’s vehicle head-on while driving 70 miles per hour. The negligent driver’s blood alcohol content (BAC) was two times the legal limit, and marijuana and pain medications were also found in his bloodstream. Sadly, he died as a result of his injuries.

Our Client Must Live With Permanent Spinal Cord Injuries
 
Our client’s injuries were serious enough that he needed to be transported to the hospital by ambulance. He was diagnosed with four herniations in his neck and bulges and protrusions further down on his spine. During the next two years, his medical treatment was extensive and included 56 doctor visits and two spinal surgeries. He has also received physical therapy, medication to manage the pain, and numerous spinal injections.
Unfortunately, he has not fully recovered from his injuries and he must live with chronic pain for the rest of his life. He is also expected to experience a faster progression of arthritis in his spine that could limit his movements and activities in the future. He will need corrective surgery and other medical treatments to deal with these permanent injuries as a result of this crash.
Our client’s injuries have significantly affected his work and personal life. He had been working as a diesel mechanic before the collision. However, during the two years of his initial treatment, he could not physically perform his job. Luckily, his employer was able to place him in a desk job, which he “toughed out” with the help of pain medication. However, this was not ideal given his chronic pain and the significant reduction in his pay and complete loss of overtime. While he has returned to his former job and wages, his future earning capacity has been greatly diminished. His injuries will cause him to stop working sooner than he would have if he had not been hurt.
In addition, our client’s injuries affected his family life. Prior to the accident, he had been very involved in his young sons’ lives, taking them fishing and camping, being involved in their school activities, and playing with them in the evenings. After he was injured, our client would come home from work too exhausted to play or participate in many of his children’s activities. Even now, he cannot spend as much time with them as he used to.
Brett Cain’s Thorough Trial Preparation Helped Him Settle Our Client’s Case for Six Figures
 
The insurance company tried to hide behind the argument that they should not have to pay our client’s claim because their insured had died in the crash. They also disputed that our client would suffer the serious injuries he claimed in the future. The insurance company would only make low settlement offers—far less than what our client’s claim was worth.
When the insurance company would not be reasonable, Brett Cain filed a lawsuit and aggressively litigated our client’s case for two years before he was able to settle it. During that time, he hired an economic expert and life care planner to show how the injuries would affect our client’s future earning capacity. He also consulted with our client’s doctor to prove the seriousness of our client’s injuries and his future prognosis. When the insurance company refused to turn over the toxicology results, Mr. Cain subpoenaed them. He had just filed a number of pre-trial motions in preparation for our client’s trial when the insurance company finally realized Mr. Cain would not give up. They agreed to a substantial confidential settlement about a month before the jury trial was scheduled to start.
The insurance proceeds will not take away the pain our client continues to endure and the limitations on his ability to work in the future, but it will help him get on with his life. It will pay for the medical care he will need and replace some of the income he will lose.

Drunk Driving Victim Receives Confidential Settlement

On February 9, 2014, our 63-year-old client was driving home from his job at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport like he always did at the end of his night shift. However, on this day, he was injured in a motor vehicle accident at an intersection caused by a drunk driver. Even worse, the driver abandoned his vehicle and fled on foot. The police found him hiding in the bushes approximately 30 minutes later. He was criminally charged with DWI and hit-and-run driving.

Our Client Suffers Back and Spinal Injuries

Our client was treated in the emergency room and then released for outpatient treatment for back and spinal injuries. This involved 14 months of primarily physical therapy and medication to manage his pain. The wreck not only caused physical injuries, but affected his emotional state as well. He became depressed when the negligent driver’s insurance company would not settle his claim and made him out to be the bad guy in the crash even though he was the obvious victim.

Despite his injuries and his depression, our client continued to work because he had a family to support. He is married and has three adult children. One child has special needs and requires our client’s care, which was more challenging during the time period that our client was recovering from his own injuries.
Brett Cain’s Perseverance Pays Off

In this case, one of the biggest challenges was locating the negligent driver to serve him with our client’s lawsuit. The driver had moved, and his insurance company refused to provide Mr. Cain with his address. In addition, they would not settle our client’s case, claiming that they could not do so under Texas law until the negligent driver requested their assistance in defending him.

Brett Cain did not let the lack of an address stop him. He filed a civil complaint against the negligent driver on August 25, 2014 and hired a private investigator to attempt to locate the driver. It took the investigator until April 2015 to find and serve him with the Summons and Complaint.

However, the insurance company still would not be reasonable, claiming that our client was not injured that seriously. Brett Cain was not deterred and aggressively litigated the case, including preparing for a jury trial. Two weeks before the date of the trial, the insurance company finally realized that Mr. Cain would not give up and settled our client’s claim for a confidential amount.

The settlement helped our client pay his medical bills and reimbursed our client for his troubles in dealing with this whole ordeal.

Young Victim Obtains Substantial Settlement in Head-On Crash

In April 2016, our 11-year-old client was a passenger in a pick-up truck being driven on Farm Market Road 51 in Hood Country when the truck was struck in a head-on collision by another driver. This driver was not only negligent, but also uninsured in violation of Texas law.

 

Our client was injured seriously enough that she had to be transported to a nearby hospital in an ambulance. She was diagnosed as having multiple facial fractures and lacerations and was released with instructions to follow up on needed medical treatment. Our client had to undergo surgery to reset her facial bones. After that, there was nothing the doctors could do but wait for her fractures and lacerations to heal, which took approximately four months. Fortunately, she made a full recovery and does not have any permanent scarring.

Jennifer Cavanaugh Went the Extra Mile for Her Young Client
 
Paralegals often collaborate with attorneys to investigate accidents and other issues in clients’ claims, gather documents needed to file a claim, and negotiate with other parties. In this case, Jennifer Cavanaugh worked closely with attorney Brett Cain to reach a favorable result for our client. As a result, our client’s future will be brighter.
Because the negligent driver had no insurance, our client had to file a claim under the uninsured motorist coverage in her family’s automobile insurance policy. There was no real dispute in settling her claim with the insurance company. However, the problem was that the medical liens were more than the coverage under the policy. This would have left our client with no money once she received her settlement funds.
Jen knew that our client would benefit from receiving her settlement proceeds and that this could have a big impact on her future. So Jen took the extra step of negotiating with our client’s health insurance company and other medical providers to whom our client’s family owed money for her medical treatments.
Negotiating with the health insurance provider and multiple creditors was time-consuming. It was also complicated because Jen was trying to reach agreements with multiple parties. She made over 20 telephone calls to our client’s health insurance company and various parties over several months before she was able to negotiate down the balances owed that were not covered by insurance. As a result of Jen’s efforts, our client received a substantial confidential settlement that was placed in trust for her until she reaches 18 years old.
