Helping Insurance Defense Clients Mitigate Substantial Losses at Trial
Read more about one of our representative trial verdicts that we obtained for an insurance defense client:
Lawler & Associates, P.C., acted as defense counsel for a prominent insurance company and its insureds during a jury trial in Cameron County, Texas. Our client was an insurer that represented a gentleman who had caused a car accident, allegedly injuring two people. Plaintiff’s counsel sought an award of more than $3.5 million, citing exorbitant costs for medical expenses and life care plans for his two clients. Prior to the trial, the carrier had offered approximately $100,000 in settlement.
Our firm used a wide variety of legal tactics to defend our client’s position during trial. Through strategic jury selection, solid evidence, expert witness testimony and skilled legal arguments, we convinced the jury of our position. A verdict was returned at the end of the four-day trial awarding the plaintiffs a total of only $115,078.81 — a far cry from the $3.5 million demand.
