2023 was a defining year for VB Attorneys, marked by relentless dedication to securing justice for clients across the country. From helping an injured crane operator win a life-changing settlement to securing justice for a Greyhound bus accident survivor, our team delivered impactful results in a diverse range of cases. Here is a closer look at the top 5 cases that shaped our year and made a real difference in the lives of our clients.
In July, we achieved a remarkable victory for the survivor of a harrowing semi-truck accident. As seen in the following video, our client was stopped at a red light when a semi-truck operated by Coburn Supply Company struck his vehicle and several others at a high rate of speed.
The semi-truck collided with the rear of his truck, causing extensive damage. He was taken to the hospital and treated for neck and back injuries. After a lengthy investigation and multiple court proceedings, VB Attorneys was able to secure a large settlement for our client.
In March of 2021, our client severely injured his wrist when getting out of the shower on a Transocean drillship. Due to this injury, he had to have a synovectomy, a complicated procedure that involves removing the membrane that lines the wrist joint due to constant and massive inflammation. In the aftermath of the surgery, he remained too injured to return to work. After years of hard work and dedication, our Jones Act attorneys recently succeeded in securing him a life-changing settlement.
Our client was a Greyhound bus passenger traveling non-stop from New York to Ohio. As the coach was passing through rural Pennsylvania, the driver fell asleep, slamming into the rear end of an 18-wheeler at highway speeds.
The collision resulted in the death of a passenger and 44 others injured. Our client suffered significant injuries to both legs which required multiple surgeries. This case and trial took many years to resolve, but we are happy with the outcome. Nothing can make up for the emotional and physical damage caused by the accident, but the settlement will ensure that our client gets the care she deserves.
This year, our team settled a landmark $2.2 million verdict in a Jones Act case against the global shipping giant, Skanska. Our client was severely injured while working onboard a Skanska ship when an 800-pound headache ball disconnected and landed on his foot and ankle.
The injury resulted in significant pain, disability, and many surgeries. This was made worse by the fact that Skanska failed to take care of him after he was injured. During the trial, the defendant offered our client $750,000. After the trial, we were able to secure our client nearly 3x that.
In April of 2021, our clients, a husband and wife, were severely injured in a devastating highway accident when their vehicle was struck by an 18-wheeler. This accident left them severely injured. Due to the husband's injuries, he voluntarily left the military, and his wife began the long road to recovery. The couple turned to our team to seek justice for the pain and suffering they endured. VB Attorneys secured a settlement far exceeding the average for similar cases in Dallas, providing them with the resources to rebuild their lives and focus on healing.
