Arbitration Award Against Nationwide Insurance Company

We recently represented an auto accident client against Nationwide Insurance Company. In this case, the person who caused the wreck only had $50,000 in coverage, which was not enough to cover the injuries to our client. Fortunately for the client, she had uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage with limits of $100,000. We have previously explained the importance of uninsured motorist coverage in Tennessee.

Despite the coverage and despite the fact that the other driver was clearly at fault (our client had the green light and the other driver turned in front of her), Nationwide would not accept full responsibility for the damage and would not offer a fair amount to settle the case. We made repeated efforts to settle the case with Nationwide for policy limits but Nationwide refused. Nationwide even blamed our client for causing the wreck and claimed that her treating doctor lied about the reasonableness of her medical treatment. Nationwide's position was completely unsupported by the evidence.

The arbitrator rejected Nationwide's claims and ruled that our client suffered damages of approximately $136,000, which is $56,000 more than Nationwide offered to pay. Nationwide will now be forced to pay the full coverage amount, as well as the arbitrator's fees and costs.

Although we are proud of the result we obtained, it is a shame that Nationwide and its lawyers would not act reasonably and honor their customer's claim.

Memphis Truck Wreck Results in $3.7 Million Jury Verdict

On July 1, 2009, our client, Donriel Borne, was driving an 18-wheeler when traffic came to a stop on I-55 in Memphis, TN, near Crump Boulevard. Donriel stopped his truck but the 18-wheeler behind him was following too closely and rear-ended him. At the time of the wreck, Donriel was 30 years old.

Donriel sought medical attention for back pain following the wreck but continued to work to support his family. He and his family doctor believed that the pain would eventually go away. It never did. Ultimately an MRI was performed that revealed a serious injury to his lower back and spine, which required him to stop working. His injuries are permanent and leave him in constant daily pain.

The truck that hit Donriel was owned and operated by Celadon Transportation Services, Inc., a trucking company based in Indiana. Instead of taking responsibility for the wreck and Donriel’s injuries, Celadon launched a no holds barred, scorched earth, frivolous defense. Celadon not only denied negligence, but actually blamed Donriel for causing the wreck. Celadon also blamed another truck that lightly rolled into the back of it after Celadon crashed into Donriel. Celadon’s position was clear from the start; everyone is at fault but us. Celadon even denied that its truck drivers owed a duty to the people of Memphis and Shelby County, Tennessee to be safe on the roadway.

We attempted to resolve the case without going to trial. However, Celadon refused to offer a reasonable amount. The last official offer before trial was $25,000.

At trial, we offered testimony from Donriel’s own doctors and physical therapists, who testified about the severity and permanency of his injuries. We also provided testimony from an expert in vocational economics who testified that due to his injuries, Donriel would not be able to obtain gainful employment.

Celadon, true to form, continued its frivolous defense at trial by using hired-gun experts to say that Donriel was not really hurt, and if he was, it was not due to the wreck. Celadon’s experts, Dr. Robert Applebaum, Carla Seyler, and Douglas Morr, had long histories of testifying for insurance companies and corporations defending lawsuits. Dr. Applebaum makes nearly half a million dollars a year from the insurance industry by conducting so-called “independent” medical exams and testifying on their behalf. Douglas Morr, a biomechanical engineer with SEA, was paid $20,000 by Celadon to say that this wreck caused the same amount of trauma to Donriel’s back as walking down the street. Through vigorous cross-examination, we were able to expose these experts for what they really are: mouthpieces for the insurance industry who are willing to say anything in order to prevent an injured person from receiving fair compensation.

On the first day of trial—almost four (4) years after the wreck – Celadon finally admitted that its driver was at fault. However, it continued to blame the other truck. This 11th hour admission of fault was nothing more than a trial strategy to gain favor with the jury. Otherwise, Celadon would have admitted fault years earlier.

Celadon also continued to argue that Donriel was not really hurt from the wreck. Celadon accused Donriel of exaggerating and faking his injuries. Celadon claimed that Donriel could work if he really wanted to and that the reason he was not working was because he was trying to get money from the lawsuit.

Celadon’s attempt to smear Donriel’s character was offensive and it backfired at trial. The jury spoke loud and clear in support of Donriel by returning a verdict for $3,705,000. The verdict allowed for past and future loss of income, as well as for physical pain, mental suffering, permanent injury, and the loss of enjoyment of life.

Thomas Greer tried the case before the Shelby County, Tennessee jury in Circuit Court. Sadler Bailey assisted with several key evidentiary depositions which were used at trial.

Motorcycle Crash Ends with $250,000 Insurance Policy Limits Settlement

n this Tennessee motorcycle wreck case, our client was traveling down a two lane highway in Kingsport, Tennessee. He was following the speed limit as well as all other traffic laws.

The impact caused our client to be thrown from the motorcycle into the roadway. He suffered several broken bones, a punctured lung, strained muscles, and road rash. The wreck could have been avoided if the at fault driver had been paying attention to the road at the time of the crash.

$600,000 Verdict for Truck Driver Injured in Collision

A Haywood County, TN jury awarded a $600,000 verdict on behalf of our client, a truck driver who sustained substantial injuries in a collision. The insurance company's final offer was for $125,000, but the jury awarded 5 times that amount. They reached a verdict in only 40 minutes.


The driver suffered from a spinal compression injury, broken ribs, and shoulder disfigurement. Even with a surgical procedure his doctor recommends, only partial relief will be possible. Our client will live with the pain in his back and shoulder for the rest of his life, and he will likely need to retire far sooner than he planned. This jury award may not end his pain, but it will ensure that our client is safe and secure in the future.

Lawsuit Against Tennessee Ambulance Company Results in $250,000 Settlement

Our client was being transported from a rural hospital in Tennessee to a metropolitan hospital to undergo non-emergency surgery. As his scheduled surgery was non-emergent, the ambulance driver had no reason to drive at a high rate of speed, use sirens, or travel through red lights. Moreover, the policies and procedures of the ambulance company stated that non-emergent patients should not be transported at a high rate of speed. Despite the policy, the ambulance was speeding through a red light and was not using sirens or emergency lights. The ambulance struck another vehicle in the intersection, injuring our client (the passenger in the ambulance) as well as the occupants of the other vehicle. Our client suffered broken bones and required substantial medical treatment.

Prisoner Denied Proper Medical Care: Policy Limits Settlement

Our client was serving time in prison for a non-violent crime. He was dependent upon prescription medication in order to control a chronic medical condition.

As a result of our efforts, we were able to expose the egregious misconduct and achieve a settlement for the available insurance policy limits.

Lawsuit Against Tennessee Ambulance Company Results in $250,000 Settlement

Our client was being transported from a rural hospital in Tennessee to a metropolitan hospital to undergo non-emergency surgery.  As his scheduled surgery was non-emergent, the ambulance driver had no reason to drive at a high rate of speed, use sirens, or travel through red lights.  Moreover, the policies and procedures of the ambulance company stated that non-emergent patients should not be transported at a high rate of speed.  Despite the policy, the ambulance was speeding through a red light and was not using sirens or emergency lights.  The ambulance struck another vehicle in the intersection, injuring our client (the passenger in the ambulance) as well as the occupants of the other vehicle.  Our client suffered broken bones and required substantial medical treatment.

$500,000 Memphis Jury Verdict

A Memphis jury, which included a teacher, doctor, firefighter, and small business owner, returned a verdict on February 12, 2013 for $500,000, finding that the driver of an SUV was primarily responsible for an interstate crash that left both him and his passenger dead.

In this wrongful death case we represented the family of the passenger who was killed in a single vehicle wreck on Interstate I-240 North in Memphis, Tennessee. One witness saw the occupants arguing several blocks before the SUV drove onto the interstate. Other witnesses indicated that the argument continued on the interstate and that the SUV was speeding at the time of the crash. All the witnesses stated that the SUV suddenly veered to the right and struck a guardrail and then a column supporting a bridge overpass.

At trial, we showed the jury that everyone who gets behind the wheel of a car must follow basic driver safety rules, including driving at a safe rate of speed and keeping the car under control. We also showed that drivers should pull the car over if it becomes too dangerous to continue driving. These basic safety rules exist to prevent deaths and injuries on the highway and to protect all of us. In the end, the jury determined that the driver was 80% at fault for the wreck and the passenger was 20% at fault.

The deceased passenger left behind three children ranging from 16 to 19 at the time of her death. As the deceased was disabled at the time of the wreck, there was no claim for loss of earning capacity. Nonetheless, we showed the jury the harms, losses and hardships caused to the children as a result of their mother’s death. Ultimately the jury agreed that the love, affection, guidance, and protection of a parent has true value. Although we only asked for a verdict of $250,000, the jury doubled this amount on the verdict form to $500,000.

The case was tried by Thomas Greer.

$1 Million Wrongful Death Medical Malpractice Settlement for Misdiagnosing Brain Aneurysm

Our client's wife visited the emergency room as a result of having a severe headache. She also experienced facial drooping and slurred speech prior to being seen in the emergency room. Despite having the classic signs and symptoms of a brain aneurysm, no CT scan was performed and the patient was discharged and told she was having a migraine headache. When the headache persisted, she presented to a different ER and was ultimately diagnosed with a brain aneurysm. Despite the efforts of highly trained neurosurgeons, she died a short time thereafter. Had the right tests been performed at the first ER, she would not have died. The defendant responsible for the negligent care agreed to pay $1 million to avoid a trial.

Patient Seriously Injured After Falling Out of Hospital Bed: $550,000 Settlement

In this case, we represented the family of an elderly patient who had been admitted to a Memphis, Tennessee hospital due to complications from congestive heart failure. The patient's lower extremities were weak and she could not walk without assistance. The patient was given powerful drugs by the hospital staff, which caused her to become disoriented and to hallucinate. The nursing staff at the hospital knew that the patient was at high risk of falling and even witnessed her attempting to get out of bed several times before her fall. However, the staff chose not to utilize bed alarms or wrist restraints and failed to even notify her physicians of her changing medical condition. As a result of the negligence of the nursing staff, the patient attempted to get out of bed unassisted and fell. The fall resulted in a neck fracture. The patient had to undergo surgery, wear a painful neck brace for months, and undergo rehabilitation for several months. As a result of the fall, she was never able to return home. She died several months later in a nursing home. The hospital paid $550,000 to settle the case.

Memphis Police Officer Not Using Lights: Results in Verdict Against the City of Memphis

This accident occurred around 10:00 p.m. on Weaver road in Memphis, Tennessee. We represented a lady who was T-boned by a Memphis police officer after she pulled out of a convenience store.

Witnesses at the scene testified that the Memphis Police officer was traveling at an extreme high rate of speed, around 80 mph. The speed limit was 40 mph. Witnesses also said that the officer was not using his headlights or blue lights. The officer testified that he was traveling the speed limit and that his headlights were on.

As soon as we were contacted by our client, we instructed the City of Memphis to preserve all relevant evidence from the wreck, including the headlights from the squad car. When we went to inspect the police vehicle at a later date, however, we found that the headlights had been removed. The trial court later ruled that the City of Memphis improperly destroyed evidence and ordered the City to pay for certain attorney fees and deposition fees.

After a three day trial, the judge ruled that the City of Memphis police officer was at fault for the accident, although the Court also found our client to be partially to blame. The City ultimately paid approximately $65,000 for medical bills, pain and suffering, attorney fees, court costs, and discretionary costs.

At the time of the trial, the officer had not been disciplined or punished in any way by the City of Memphis for his negligent conduct.
