About the Dallas Auto Accident

  • A 45 year-old male was driving in his pickup truck with a 32 year-old male as his passenger on August 31, 2010. The two men are the plaintiffs in an automobile lawsuit.
  • The pair was driving along a Dallas avenue intersection through a green light when a vehicle, driven by defendant, drove through a red light and collided with the pickup.
  • The plaintiffs brought a claim of negligence which the defendant did not dispute.

Injuries Sustained in the Dallas Accident

  • The injuries that the plaintiffs claimed to have suffered include multiple herniation of disks to the neck, back, and lumbar areas of the body.
  • The parties contended that future physical therapy and pain treatment would be necessary and that the injuries suffered had interfered with the daily physical activities of their everyday lives.
  • The plaintiffs sought monetary damages for past and future pain and suffering, physical impairment, and lost income.
  • The defendant’s council held that the injuries suffered by the plaintiffs were pre-existing conditions and not a result of the auto accident.
The Verdict is In 
  • The Dallas Country judge issued a verdict in favor of the plaintiffs.
  • Damages of $96,742 were awarded in part to the plaintiffs while the defendant has been found negligent.
