Most Texas law firms would not have taken our client’s case because he did not seek medical attention for more than two weeks after the crash. Through his and others’ testimony, we were able to navigate past this issue to our client’s benefit.

The Carlson Law Firm Personal Injury Attorneys, Steve Dummitt and Michael Erskine, helped a car crash victim resolve a case just prior to trial for a confidential, but substantial settlement.

The client was involved in a collision with a driver operating a company vehicle. The victim is an older gentleman and ultimately underwent spinal surgery due to the severity of his injuries. According to court documents (No. CV49399, 441st Judicial District, Midland County), the defendant disputed both the liability, claiming that the collision was unavoidable and that the injuries were not caused by the crash. The defense specifically focused the plaintiff’s advanced age and “inconsistent” medical treatment as the primary factors in his injuries. (No. CV49399, 441st Judicial District, Midland County)

“Most Texas law firms would not have taken our client’s case because he did not seek medical attention for more than two weeks after the crash. Through his and others’ testimony, we were able to navigate past this issue to our client’s benefit,” said attorney Steve Dummitt.

The driver and company was aggressively defended by one of Texas’ premier defense firms out of Dallas. Despite the resources of the defendant company, The Carlson Law Firm attorneys were able to build the case through aggressive advocacy.

“Over the past five or six years, there has been a significant increase in company vehicles on Texas roads,” said attorney Mike Erskine. “Unfortunately, our client’s life is changed from this crash.”
