AT&T pays settlement to Houston driver broad sided by company employee; low back herniation injury with back fusion surgery
Digna was driving her vehicle through an intersection in Houston, Texas when a van driven by an AT&T employee ran a red light and broad sided her. Digna mainly hurt her low back in this crash. She ended up having a back surgery.
AT&T initially denied Digna's claim, refusing to admit that its driver was at fault for the accident. Digna hired Vujasinovic & Beckcom to pursue her case. V&B lawyers filed her case in Harris County, Texas.
V&B attorneys worked up Digna's case, proving the crash was the fault of the AT&T driver, and proving Digna's injuries.
V&B negotiated a $500,000 settlement for Digna, which was achieved less than one year after the crash. Attorney fees were $200,000, and litigation expenses were $18,000.
Awarded: $500,000 settlement; $200,000 attorney fee; $18,000 expenses
