BREAKING–Harris County Couple Awarded $12.4M Verdict in Trucking Accident Case

Posted on Tuesday, October 1st, 2019 at 11:20 am by Williams Hart   

HARRIS COUNTY, TX — On September 30, 2019, Jim Hart and Steve Kherkher of Williams Hart won a $12,450,000 verdict in the 129th District Court of Harris County, Texas. Their clients, a young working couple, sustained serious injuries when an 18-wheeler operated by New Prime, Inc. struck their small sedan from behind at highway speed on Interstate 45 in Houston. One client suffered an injury known as trigeminal neuralgia, a painful nerve disease that is one of the most painful conditions known in medicine. The jury’s award consists entirely of mental anguish and pain and suffering.

New Prime, Inc. is one of the largest trucking companies in North America and entrusted its vehicle to a driver with a history of over 60 safety violations. The defense strategically admitted to the driver’s negligence before trial. The trial lasted one week and it took the jury a half day of deliberations to return their verdict.

Also assisting were Attorneys Kevin Haynes and Margot Trevino as well as Trial Paralegal Jael Hamilton of Williams Hart.


Williams Hart secures $1.5M verdict for client injured in auto accident.

On January 20, 2015 our client broke his leg when he was hit by an SUV while he was attempting to purchase an automobile at an auto auction. The driver of the SUV was a worker sent over by Pacesetter to drive cars at the Manheim Big H auction center. Our client was safely crossing the road when he was struck by a Ford Explorer being driven by the defendant.

Our client was back to work in just 9 months. He turned to Jim Hart and Steve Kherkher to handle his case and handle the case they did.

Steve and Jim spent many long nights strategizing and prepping for trial. After a rigorous trial before Harris County 55th District Court Judge Shadwick, the jury came back with a UNANIMOUS decision in favor of the plaintiff. They awarded the client $750,000 for pain and suffering as well as $750,000 for physical impairment for a whopping total of $1.5 million dollars.

Here at Williams Hart, we are so proud of Jim and Steve and the work they put in on behalf of their client and know they will do the same for you or your family members.
