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.”

Thomas J. Henry Featured in Bloomberg Businessweek for “Clear Commitment to Client Satisfaction”

SAN ANONTIO, TX (January 14, 2019) – Texas personal injury attorney Thomas J. Henry was featured in Bloomberg Businessweek as the publication highlighted his firm’s “clear commitment to client satisfaction.”

In the feature, Thomas J. Henry recalled notable cases that had an impact on him as an attorney and a resident of South Texas. One such case involved a Texas woman who was catastrophically injured in a company vehicle accident in San Antonio, Texas.  Over the course of the case, Thomas J. Henry and his trial team discovered that the driver of the company vehicle was on his cell phone immediately before the collision and that he had a history of using his cell phone while driving.

Further, Thomas J. Henry’s team found that the company that employed the driver allowed executive employees to use their cell phones while driving, despite being aware of the dangers associated with distracted driving. By the end of the trial, Thomas J. Henry had secured a multi-million verdict on behalf of his client.

“The jury ruled in favor of my client, determining that the accident was caused by the employer’s lack of safety management as well as the driver’s failure to use caution,” said Thomas J. Henry.

The verdict was recognized as one of the Top 10 Texas Verdicts of 2017 by Top Verdict.

Thomas J.  Henry is quick to point out that results like this are not achieved through legal prowess alone. In order to achieve consistent success for your clients, an attorney must care about the people he is representing.

“If you work for me and caring about our clients isn’t your top priority, then this isn’t the place for you,” said Thomas J. Henry. “In the aftermath of a life- altering injury or the loss of a loved one, what people need more than anything else is compassion. Lives and relationships may be irrevocably changed; I want to be a part of helping them become as whole as possible”

Thomas J. Henry continued by pledging  “My promise to clients—my guarantee—is that we will do everything in our power to successfully resolve their case. I’m thankful to every person who chooses to allow Thomas J. Henry to tell their story.”
