Press release from: Kane Russell Coleman & Logan PC

On April 29, 2009, Zach Mayer and Aaron Speer of KRCL obtained a defense verdict for a national trucking company in defending a catastrophic brain injury case. The Plaintiffs alleged that the driver was negligent in his operation of a tractor and two trailer units while acting in the course and scope of his employment. Furthermore, the Plaintiffs alleged negligent hiring, training and supervision against the carrier. KRCL prevailed on a motion for summary judgment as to the negligent supervision, training and hiring claims. The case did not settle after two mediations with the Plaintiffs' final demand remaining at over $10 million. The case proceeded to trial and the Plaintiffs put on damages in excess of $10 million dollars through a life care planner and economist. After a three day trial in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Marshall, the jury found no negligence on the part of the Defendants. KRCL regularly represents clients in connection with litigation regarding catastrophic injuries of all nature, including premises liability/negligence, trucking, fire, and many others.
