The Estate of M.K.A. v. Western Chemical Specialties, Inc.
M.K.A. was driving to her high school reunion in Wyoming when a truck crossed the center line and struck her car in a head-on collision. Both drivers perished in the accident. The driver of the other vehicle was a co-owner of the company and was driving a company vehicle. We found evidence the truck driver was under the influence of drugs at the time. This case settled for $2,935,854.95.
M.S. and G.S. v. Railroad Services Company
M.S. was working in a rail yard for his trucking company in Nebraska when the defendant dropped a railroad rail on him. M.S. suffered several severe injuries including an “open book” pelvic fracture, like an open book on a table. This case settled for $2,650,000.
Armstrong v. Bisbee, AZ, and Phelps Dodge Corp.
Amy Armstrong, a mother of four children, volunteered for the “Queen Mine Halloween Tour,” a fundraiser event staged by the city of Bisbee, Arizona. When a rotted support bean gave way, wedged her between the mine train and the wall of the mine. She died from “positional asphyxia.”
We found evidence that the mine was not properly lit and that there was no proper plan to deal with emergencies that might arise. This case settled for $2.5 million.
