Our attorneys recently obtained one of the largest jury verdicts ever in Donnelly County, TX. The case was tried to verdict in Clarendon, in the Texas Panhandle. This case arose from the tragic sexual abuse of a child and involved a prominent local ranching family. We tried the case for a week, and the jury found for our client. This verdict occurred on the heels of a $33,800,000 verdict in Tarrant County, TX arising from a products liability case that resulted in the loss of a young man’s leg. As Parker County grows, communities and the citizens of the county will face a wide variety of challenges. Increased traffic and construction can result in accidents and injuries. The stress of growth, and the problems and injuries that can occur in the process, can fracture families and communities. Legal issues such as zoning, nuisance claims, injuries to people or property, construction safety, flooding and other land use issues, and accidents arising from overcrowded roadways can be challenging. These problems can occur in spite of the best intentions. While we hope you never need an attorney, if you do, please give us a call and let us help you.
