A recent settlement from our Memphis Attorneys.
Hey fellow practitioners of the law, I wanted to share a recent settlement and hear what you think.

Confidential Settlement for Paralysis Victim.
A Memphis woman was traveling in Florida with her husband and son.  Her husband was driving a company vehicle.  The morning of the accident, it had been raining.  The vehicle driven by the husband hydroplaned and he lost control of the vehicle. The vehicle flipped and his wife was ejected.  The wife was paralyzed from the waist down while no one else in the vehicle sustained injuries.  The wife will have medical needs for the rest of her life and will never work again.  Three Memphis law firms were consulted and declined representation stating to the family that there was no legal remedy for them. Matt along with co-counsel were then consulted by the family.  After meeting with the family, Matt along with co-counsel hired and represented the wife against the company her husband worked for, and the insurance company that represented it.   The case was mediated and settled for a confidential amount prior to filing a lawsuit. Matt along with co-counsel were able to secure a large settlement and the client will not have to worry about the cost of medical care or other living necessities.

Single Car Accident Settlement

Hey everyone we wanted to share a story about a Mid-South lady who was traveling with her friends to Florida for vacation.

 She was a passenger and her best friend was driving. Her best friend lost control of the vehicle and flipped the vehicle down an embankment.

The young lady was killed and her best friend was uninjured.

The insurance carrier for the driver offered the family of the deceased $3,000.00 in death benefits.

+Matthew Porter  along with co-counsel were hired to represent the family and estate of the deceased. A settlement was later reached for policy limits and death benefits of $105,000.00.

Jury Verdict of $2.8 million

+Matthew Porter was part of a trial team that recently secured a jury verdict in the amount of $2.8 million.  

A man was traveling on Highway 385 in Memphis when he was hit from behind.  The collision caused his vehicle to turn and flip.  He was ejected and sustained fractures to his skull and both legs.

The injuries were so severe, he was left with permanent blindness in one eye and also underwent a craniotomy.

He spent 27 days in ICU at The Regional Medical Center.  The case was highly contested by multiple defense firms, including outside counsel brought in from New York City.

The attorneys were able to survive multiple Summary Judgments as well as Interlockatory Appeals and Extraordinary Appeal.  Finally almost 6 years after the collision occurred the case went to trial.  The jury found the defendant driver 100% at fault and awarded a verdict of $2.8 million for their clients.
