Commercial Truck and Bus
v. Greyhound Lines
The clients in this case were injured when a Greyhound bus lost control on an icy road in December 2007. Ron’s courtroom victory against Greyhound came after a three-week trial, wherein the jury awarded over $18.6 million, including $9 million in punitive damages.This was the largest verdict ever awarded against Greyhound and was covered by news media all over the country, including Dallas Morning News, Channel 11 news, Lawyers USA, and VerdictSearch to name a few.
v. Barron Thomas, Agnes Clarke, Barron Thomas Aviation Inc.
Again in January of 2013, Ron tried the case of Ken and Martha Zeiler, Joe Zeiler, and the Estate of Mary Mabry v. Barron Thomas, Agnes Clarke, Barron Thomas Aviation Inc., et al.; Cause No. CC-09-03492, Dallas County Court at Law No. 3. In this case concerning breach of contract, fraudulent inducement and ͞Ponzi͟ scheme allegations, Ron obtained a verdict of $867,880.20, including $250,000.00 in punitive awards against the Defendants.
v. R&L Carriers
Yet another important verdict came on April 24, 2014 in the case of Bobbie Bush v. R&L Carriers, Inc., et al; Cause No. DC-11-16041, 298th District Court, Dallas County, Texas.
A 41-year old Mississippi woman was seriously injured when her pick-up truck rolled over after it was read-ended by an 18-wheel tractor-trailer driver.
The jury in this case found that the truck driver, who had two previous rear-end collisions, was grossly negligent. The jury also found that his employers, Greenwood Motor Lines, Inc. doing business as R&L Carriers, were also grossly negligent in failing to properly supervise and train their driver. The client was awarded over $4.1 million.
This case was also unique in that Ron held the largest privately held trucking company accountable under both a general negligence standard and by clear and convincing evidence for gross negligence findings against both the driver and the company.
v. Undisclosed Defendant
Most recently in April of 2017, Ron obtained the second largest recovery in the history Lubbock County Texas. A notoriously conservative venue. Despite overwhelming odds for his client, Ron was able to resolve a motor vehicle case for over $6.4 million dollars. Ron’s success in the courtroom reflects in being awarded the highest possible rating in both legal ability and ethics by Martindale-Hubbell (AV Preeminent), as well as being selected as a ͞Super Lawyer͟ for the last five consecutive years. Ron was also selected as a ͞Texas Rising Star͟ by Super Lawyers (a Thompson Reuters publication) in 2011, 2012 and 2013, which is an honor limited to the top 2.5 percent of lawyers in the State of Texas.
