Sullo & Sullo and Moriarty Leyendecker recently settled a wrongful death case
in excess of $4.5 million, including $1.5 million in attorney's fees and approximately
$14,000 in expenses. This settlement is one of the largest on record in in
Liberty County, Texas.
We represented a 36 year old widow, her three children and the estate of her 38
year old husband who was crushed to death when a forklift driver dropped thousands
of pounds of oil field pipe on top of him.
Our speed in uncovering crucial facts; providing witness testimony; and compiling
information clearly proved not only negligence, but wrongful conduct on the part
of the defendant.
Armed with key pieces of evidence, we were able to force the defendants to promptly
pay more than five times the amount of economic damages, without requiring our clients
to go through the agony of giving testimony about the loss of their loved one.
