News StoryEveryone here at SA Legal is excited about the massive victory our clients had in Bexar county district court last week. Congratulations to Brian Steward, Jay Moore and Ryan Todd for a well tried case.

Cumpian was working for Leal Welding and Erection in May 2012 as a subcontractor on a Joeris General Contractors job site. Cumpian was working as a welder’s assistant when a metal staircase that was being moved via forklift was dropped onto his foot.

This was a rarely seen bifurcated punitive damages case where the jury found for the plaintiff in the amount of $5million.

Personal Injury Defense Win in Bexar County

Last week we helped Will Allan and Alex Nava from Allan, Nava, Glander successfully defend what we nicknamed the “bumper scratcher” case. This low impact and very low damage claim was filed by The Herrera Law firm and included a neck surgery recommendation.

There were many obstacles to overcome, including the Judge not allowing the accident photographs into evidence. After 2 weeks of testimony the plaintiffs asked for $625,000 in damages, including past and future pain and suffering.

The jury returned a $0 verdict in 45 minutes of deliberation.

We provided the defense team with creation of trial exhibit notebooks, deposition editing and playback in court and Sanction support in the courtroom. There were not many demonstrative graphics created, but we did create a basic timeline as seen below.

Congrats to Lawrence Morales of San Antonio for a well tried and long trial in Bexar County.  This case sparked lots of emotions and hopefully will show other apartment managers to follow the rules and keep their unoccupied apartments locked and not allow random people to stay in them.

Congrats!
