McQuinn v. Temple-Eastex, Inc.
(3rd Dist. Ct., Anderson County, Texas): This case was turned down by several law firms before a thorough investigation by Roberts & Roberts proved the police report was wrong and that the plaintiff was not at fault. The plaintiff was a young woman who was left brain damaged after her car collided with a tractor-trailer rig. Because of her brain injury, the plaintiff could not remember how the accident happened or refute the truck driver’s story (which placed all the fault on the plaintiff). After discovering that the truck driver had a history of reckless driving, Roberts & Roberts dug deeper. After interviewing numerous people in the vicinity of the accident, Roberts & Roberts eventually located several eyewitnesses to the accident. These witnesses as well as an independent accident reconstruction by Roberts & Roberts proved the truck driver was at fault and the plaintiff received the settlement she deserved.
