Thomas J. Henry Wins $45.3 Million Verdict for Texas Woman Injured in Company Vehicle Accident

SAN ANTONIO, TX (November 21, 2017) – A unanimous San Antonio jury sent a message to Texas and the entire country today in delivering a $45.3 million verdict in a company vehicle crash involving the use of cell phones while driving. The case, JENNY HANES v. JC FODALE ENERGY SERVICES, LLC AND MICKEY HUNT, was tried in the 45th District Court in Bexar County. Hon. Stephani Walsh presided.

Facts of the Texas Company Vehicle Accident Case

The case involved a collision between Mickey Hunt, an employee of JC Fodale Energy Services, LLC, a privately held oilfield services company, and 35-year-old Jenny Hennes. The accident occurred in 2015 when Thomas J. Henry’s client, Jenny Hennes, was travelling southbound on I-35 in San Antonio. Hennes was in stop-and-go traffic when she was rear-ended by Mickey Hunt’s SUV. Hennes’ vehicle was pushed off the road into the left-hand median. She suffered neck, back, and shoulder injuries as a result of the wreck.

Details of the Personal Injury Lawsuit

Mickey Hunt and JC Fodale denied responsibility for the crash; but, over the course of nearly three weeks of trial and after hearing from plaintiff’s cell phone experts and safety experts, the jury sided with Mrs. Hennes. The jury decided that the wreck was caused by a lack of safety management through the company’s corporate executives and by Mr. Hunt’s failure to drive carefully under the circumstances.

Hunt claimed this rear-end collision was caused by traffic slowing or stopping abruptly. Yet, it was revealed during the trial that the defendant driver was on his cell phone immediately before the collision and in the previous months before the wreck had been a “heavy user” of his cell phone while driving.

World renowned expert Ben Levitan, a holder of 29 patents on cell phone technology, was hired by Thomas J. Henry to explain to the jury the use and misuse of the cell phone by the defendants.

The company had at least four different conflicting policies regarding the use of cell phones. It was discovered that the company had different rules for executives and non-executives regarding cell phone use while driving. The jury heard how executives in the company were allowed to use their cell phones while driving. Despite denials by Mr. Hunt and company, the jury decided that Mr. Hunt was a corporate executive.

It was determined that company executives were aware of studies showing that using a cell phone while driving, even hands free, was equivalent to driving while intoxicated at a level of .08 percent blood alcohol content. The company failed to share this vital and life-saving knowledge with their own employees and continued to allow executives to use their cell phones while driving.

Details of the Personal Injury Verdict

Jenny Hennes underwent neck surgery following the crash and the jury heard from her neurosurgeon that she would require future surgery on her neck and/or back as a result of the wreck. The jury also learned that Mrs. Hennes would require future shoulder surgery. Evidence was presented to the jury that Mrs. Hennes would have difficulty obtaining employment over the course of her life. The jury verdict was unanimous with the following findings as to negligence and gross negligence of the defendants and the following damages:

  • Past and Future Physical Pain and Mental Anguish: $7,250,000
  • Past and Future Loss of Earning Capacity: $1,100,000
  • Past and Future Disfigurement: $300,000
  • Past and Future Physical Impairment: $2,900,000
  • Past and Future Medical Expenses: $1,265,000
  • Punitive Damages: $32,500,000

Thomas J. Henry, the lead trial lawyer in the case, had an experienced trial team devoted to presenting the best possible case to the jury for Mrs. Hennes. Members of his senior trial team included Dale Hicks and Richard Hunnicutt.

Attorney Dale Hicks was quoted after this verdict as saying, “the crash will have lifelong consequences for Mrs. Hennes. This verdict confirms that a San Antonio jury understands the value of lost dignity and inability to work.”

Attorney Richard Hunnicutt added, “The jurors in San Antonio are concerned about safety on our roads and highways. They wanted to make sure their message was heard loud and clear— they will not tolerate an individual or company that allows their drivers to speed, use hands-free cell phones, or text while driving.”

Thomas J. Henry added, “This verdict exemplifies the hard work and dedication of all the lawyers who worked on this case. Most importantly it represents a jury’s understanding that safety is a vital component of our life. Companies that violate safety rules and cause injuries to people like Mrs. Hennes should be held responsible for the harm they inflict.”

Victim’s Wife Receives $3.6 Million Portion of Verdict for Loss of Consortium

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (Aug. 2, 2017) — Thomas J. Henry, a personal injury law firm, obtained an $11.27 million verdict in South Texas on behalf of their client Alex Puga, who was injured in a 2015 trucking accident. Puga suffered a burnt left hand, a broken thigh bone, broken right ankle, and broken hip. A portion of the verdict, totaling $3.6 million, was awarded to Puga’s wife for loss of consortium. She was not involved in the accident.

Facts of the Texas Trucking Accident Case

The accident occurred in 2015 when Thomas J. Henry’s client, Alex Puga, was traveling southbound on Highway 77 in Refugio County, driving home after work to have dinner with his wife, Norma Puga. A tractor owned by About Tyme Transport, Inc., hauling a trailer owned by Xtra Lease, LLC, and leased to RCX Solutions, Inc., was heading northbound on Highway 77 when the operator, who was on his cell phone in the rain, hydroplaned across the median and entered southbound traffic. Puga was violently struck head-on by the tractor-trailer, causing him extensive physical and mental injuries.

Details of the Personal Injury Lawsuit

Thomas J. Henry’s firm filed suit against the 18-wheeler operator’s employer, RCX Solutions, Inc., for negligence, negligence per se, and gross negligence. Richard Hunnicutt, of Thomas J. Henry, tried the case in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District, Corpus Christi, under the Statutory Employer Doctrine.

RCX Solutions, Inc., claimed they were only the broker and were not responsible for the actions of the tractor-trailer operator. A fact question was submitted to the jury in federal court, asking the jury to determine if there was an arrangement between the tractor-trailer operator and RCX Solutions, Inc., to use his equipment. The jury found that there was indeed an arrangement. The Plaintiff’s attorney proved that RCX Solutions, Inc. did not have a Department of Transportation Broker’s license and therefore could not legally broker the load. Siding with the plaintiff, the jury found that the 18-wheeler operator was negligent and that RCX Solutions, Inc., used a motor vehicle it did not own to transport property under an arrangement with the operator.

The jury awarded Alex Puga $7,586,590 for past and future medical care expenses, earning capacity, physical pain and mental anguish, physical impairment, and physical disfigurement. The jury awarded Norma Puga $3,689,076 for past and future loss of household services and loss of consortium. The total of the jury award was $11,275,666.

“The jury didn’t like this company trying to pass the buck. They saw through the company’s claims that they were a broker and not responsible for this driver. They saw that they were actually the Carrier and the Employer for this load and held them responsible,” Hunnicutt stated.

“Our firm has a long history of holding trucking companies responsible for serious injuries and deaths. The law is designed to safeguard all of us on the roadways and highways in the US. My firm has been dedicated to upholding these values, for our clients, in courts around the country,” firm founder Thomas J. Henry added.

Thomas J. Henry Secures $9 Million Verdict for Texas Man with Crushed Hand from Oil Field Accident

SAN ANTONIO, TX (May 1, 2017) –Thomas J. Henry, a personal injury law firm, obtained a $9 million verdict in South Texas on behalf of a client who suffered a crushed hand as the result of a 2011 oil field accident.

The accident occurred in 2011 when Thomas J. Henry’s client, Michael Gilmore, was working for Unit Drilling Company at a drilling site near Dilley, Texas. Gilmore was riding, unrestrained, on the front a forklift when the forklift backed up over a cable, causing it to snap and bring an industrial-sized metal pulley down on Gilmore’s hand. The pulley caused a crushing hand injury, requiring reconstructing surgery, and resulted in Gilmore suffering from Complex Regional Pain Syndrome.

Thomas J. Henry’s firm filed suit against the drilling company and other defendants for negligent supervision, negligent operation of a forklift, and gross negligence. Plaintiffs experts also alleged numerous OSHA violations.

Lead attorney Richard Hunnicutt, of Thomas J. Henry, tried the case in Nueces County. During the heated contest, the defense asked the jury to award a total of $50,000 for the injuries. Hunnicutt asked the jury to award between $4 million and $6 million.

After a three-week trial, the jury sided with the plaintiff and awarded Thomas J. Henry’s client $9 million in damages.

“Oilfields are dangerous enough as it is. Forklifts alone are deadly dangerous if not operated with care,” lead attorney Richard Hunnicutt stated. “This jury wanted to send a clear message to drilling companies to follow the safety rules.”

“This multi-million-dollar verdict is just another reason why we are one of top Workplace Injury firms in the country,” Thomas J. Henry stated. “Year after year we obtain some of the highest verdicts for injured workers in the United States. We are also the largest personal injury and wrongful death firm in Texas and one of the largest in the nation.”

This approach to case investigation and development ensures Thomas J. Henry Injury Attorneys’ clients obtain maximum recoveries for their injuries.

In the first quarter of this year alone, Thomas J. Henry made several multi-million dollar recoveries, including an $8.7 million verdict on behalf of a well-worker who was permanently injured when a fellow employee, who was severely fatigued and fell asleep at the wheel, caused a major auto accident. Thomas J. Henry’s attorneys were able to prove that the well operator, knowing the risks associated with fatigued driving, acted negligently in insisting the fatigued crewmembers transport themselves home after their 22-hour shift.
