Austin, TX (PRWEB) October 30, 2012
The McMinn Law Firm has settled a car accident case against an oil field services company for $750,000 under the jurisdiction of the 81st District Court in Atascosa County, Texas. After medical expenses and attorney fees, net recovery to client was $462,000.00.
According to settlement documents for the case, number 12-04-0327-CVA, the car accident occurred when an employee of the oil field services company disregarded a red light, striking the car in which the plaintiff was a passenger while driving approximately 45 mph.
The plaintiff spent several days in the hospital with internal bleeding and a fractured arm, among other injuries. Due to the extent of his injuries, some of which were permanent and life-altering, the plaintiff has been unable to work since the accident.
“It’s terrible when reckless drivers change the course of a person’s life,” said Justin McMinn, a partner with the firm. “We’re confident that this money can help our client find a way to move forward in his life. It’s very satisfying to be able to help good people find a way forward after suffering a setback from an accident.”
This is one of several large settlements obtained by the firm this year. As a leading practice in Austin, the McMinn Law Firm continues to pursue insurance firms typically thought of as untouchable.
“It’s important to educate the general public on the matters of the law concerning their rights,” McMinn said. “Our constitution has a place of all, big and small, and we are here to enforce that protection.”
