R. Sadler Bailey, founder of Bailey & Greer, PLLC, has obtained a verdict of $600,000 on behalf of an injured truck driver. The driver suffered multiple injuries in a crash stemming from a tractor-trailer accident on I-40 near the City of Brownsville, Tennessee, on October 31, 2013. —
“I am honored to have represented such a hard-working and honest individual,” attorney R. Sadler Bailey said. “When a wrongdoer breaks the rules of the road and refuses to pay a fair amount for the harm they caused, juries are there to make it right.”
The Haywood County jury returned its victory after a mere 40 minute deliberation, a new record for the firm. The insurance company wanted to settle the case for a far lower amount after the collision. The jury’s verdict is five times more than the insurance company’s final offering.
A case about the future
The truck driver represented by the firm sustained substantial injuries, including a compression fracture of the spine, a persistent shoulder injury and broken ribs, which left him unable to work for a period of six weeks. Though the firm’s client did eventually return to work as a driver, the constant pain in his shoulder and back has led him to understand that he will need to retire much sooner than he anticipated. His doctor testified that the problems with that shoulder would require surgical treatment, in order to decrease the pain and disfigurement, but that his relief would only be partial. R. Sadler Bailey understood that his client would face not only medical bills and daily expenses, but being unable to work would leave his client in a precarious place for the future.
The significant verdict awarded by the jury will ensure that this client will be well protected when he can no longer work.
