CFHO SUCCESSFULLY DEFENDS INTERNATIONAL BUS COMPANY
Congratulations to attorneys J. Dean Jackson and Christopher A. Wright for obtaining a favorable trial outcome in a clear-liability case in which a mother and son sought $500,000.00 in damages allegedly caused by a bus that leaked oil on an interstate in San Antonio. At the end of a two-week trial, the jury awarded $13,234.26 to the mother for past medical expenses and $8,322.12 to the son for past medical expenses, for a total verdict of $21,560.48. Even though Plaintiffs’ board-certified orthopedic surgeon recommended a future lumbar surgery, the jury denied Plaintiffs’ claim for future medical expenses and awarded nothing for past and future: physical pain; mental anguish; and physical impairment. Prior to trial, Defendants obtained summary judgment on Plaintiffs’ negligent entrustment claim.
