(Denton, Texas) – A unanimous 12-person jury in Denton County, Texas found that our clients, a national trucking company and their driver, were not negligent in an April 19, 2019 three-car accident on Interstate 35 North. Plaintiffs were seeking $1 million. The jury returned a verdict within 45 minutes, answering “No” on the separate negligence questions for each plaintiff, one, a 93-year-old World War II veteran, and the other, his 74-year-old caretaker. Tracy Freeman, Cox’s Houston office managing partner was lead counsel and he was assisted by Steven Shattuck (Of Counsel) and Dominique Johnson (Legal Assistant). The responding police officer ticketed our client driver for failure to control speed. Our client driver accepted responsibility for the accident. However, the jury, after hearing “the rest of the story” concluded they were not negligent. Cox PLLC will be filing a Final Judgment which will include, per the judge’s instructions, an assessment of court costs against Plaintiffs. This is a good reminder for existing and prospective clients that some cases must be tried. The courtroom is a battlefield. Cox PLLC has enduring courage to carry your banner into battle when you draw a line in the sand.
Great win Tracy !
We are reminded liability is a defense even against big targets. Nice job.
