Other Outstanding Achievements:

  • In July of 2018 we settled Brenda Gibbs' case. Brenda was a passenger in her daughter Courtney's SUV. Courtney was driving when they approached a large cotton gin truck in Abbeville, GA. Courtney plead guilty to improper lane change and the truck driver according to the investigating officer did not contribute to the wreck.  Our case was that the trucker pulled in front of the SUV resulting in Courtney driving onto the shoulder to their right and then spinning out of control in front of the truck. We had to hire an accident reconstructionist to prove it. The wreck was life threatening with Brenda being life-flighted from the scene. She had to endure multiple surgeries. The defense claimed the damages should be attributable soley to Courtney. However, the accident reconstuctionist made an excellent witness in his video deposition.  The case was on a trial calendar in Wilcox County when the defense requested mediation. It settled for a confidential amount. , 2018
