Judge Converts Thomas J. Henry Injury Attorneys’ $59.8 Million Drunk Driving Verdict into $60 Million Judgment

San Antonio, TX (September 24, 2019)– A San Antonio jury sent a message to Texas and the entire country Friday in delivering a $59.8 million verdict in a crash involving a drunk driver. The case, Armando Guerrero III vs. Nydia Pena, was tried in the 166th District Court in Bexar County. Hon. Laura Salinas presided. On Tuesday, Judge Salinas converted the verdict into a $60,086,578.32 judgement, to include pre-judgment interest in the case. This judgment cannot be dismissed by bankruptcy (Under 11 U.S.C. § 523 – U.S. Code – Title 11. Bankruptcy § 523. Exceptions to discharge (A) 9.)

Details of the Judgment

Thomas J. Henry stated, “This judgment represents a non-dischargeable judgment for money. Due to the intoxication assault finding in the case, the judgment cannot be discharged in bankruptcy. Collection actions can occur over the course of the defendant’s life.”

Facts of the San Antonio Drunk Driving Crash Case

The crash occurred in May 2016, when the vehicle carrying Thomas J. Henry’s client, 23-year-old Armando Guerrero, III, was struck by a speeding drunk driver who ran a red light on Southwest Military Drive. 

Mr. Guerrero suffered facial and abdominal injuries and underwent surgery for a broken jaw, spleen repair, and other injuries.

Details of the San Antonio Drunk Driving Crash Lawsuit

Defendant Nydia Pena admitted she was intoxicated at the time of the accident and that she was distracted by her child in the backseat. She ran a red light while traveling at a speed of over 78 mph in a 40 mph zone. 

Details of the San Antonio Drunk Driving Crash Verdict

After three hours of deliberation, the jury found in favor of the plaintiff and awarded the following damages supported by the evidence:

  • Past and Future Physical Pain and Mental Anguish: $7,500,000
  • Past and Future Disfigurement: $550,000
  • Past and Future Physical Impairment: $1,625,000
  • Past Medical Expenses: $81,223.22
  • Punitive Damages: $50,000,000

With pre-judgment interest, the final judgment will exceed $60 million.

Thomas J. Henry stated, “When a driver chooses to drink and get behind the wheel, they are making a decision that puts everybody on the road at risk. This case exemplifies the extensive, life-altering consequences that arise from that sort of decision.”

Thomas J. Henry continued by saying, “I hope the judgment our firm achieved for Mr. Guerrero serves as a reminder: If you choose to drink and drive, you will be held accountable to the fullest extent the law allows.”
