W.T. Johnson Law Firm team of personal injury lawyers win $500,000 jury verdict in auto accident case involving $29,0000 in medical bills.

Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) July 16, 2012

The W.T. Johnson Law Firm team of personal injury lawyers recently won a $500,000 jury verdict for a client rear-ended in an auto-accident.

According to court documents, the team´s client was in a work van on his way to a worksite when the defendant, who wasn´t paying attention, never hit her brakes and rear-ended him.

The client had $29,000 in medical bills and missed work because of the accident, though, as a unionized employee, was still paid during his time recuperating from the collision, according to court documents. Doctors are unsure of whether he will require more surgery.

A $500,000 verdict for a case involving only $29,000 in medical bills is fairly unusual. Usually, a case like this would settle for under $100,000.

“The client is such a deserving, hard-working older guy,” said David Crowe, attorney with the W.T. Johnson team. “The jury liked him, and I think that helped make the verdict as large as it was. This has changed his life. He´s worked manual labor his whole life, and never made much money. Now, he and his wife plan to pay off their house.”

The W.T. Johnson Law Firm is a team of personal injury and consumer attorneys in Dallas, Texas. The attorneys on the team have recovered more than $50 million for clients and have more than 25 years of experience representing clients in cases involving nursing homes, car wrecks and product liability, among others.

Court of Record: District Court, Oklahoma County, Oklahoma

Case Number: CJ-2010-3560
