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.

Last February 7 on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, Caitlyn Jenner was involved in a car crash that took the life of Kim Howe. Jenner’s SUV hit Howe’s Lexus from behind, causing it to head towards oncoming traffic, where it was hit by a Hummer.
The Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office announced September 30 that Jenner will not be charged with misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter- despite lawsuits already filed by the victim’s adult stepchildren.
Based on reports, the investigation concluded that Jenner was below speed limit and was driving slower than Howe. Although Jenner was not going over the speed limit, she was still driving at an unsafe speed for the condition of the road, according to reports.
Losing a life is devastating, and it is more tragic if another person is at fault. True justice must be served for everyone who is experiencing a loss like this. Our legal team at Williams Hart extends its sincerest condolences to the family and friends of Kim Howe.

Last Thursday, September 17, a 71-year-old man was killed after he was hit by a pickup truck in Carson City, Nevada. The man was brought to the hospital but died later that night.
It was around 2:50 p.m. when a sheriff responded to the crash at 101 Hot Springs Road. The victim was crossing the street when he was hit by a truck driven by a 68-year-old who was cited for failure to yield to a pedestrian, according to Reno Gazette Journal.
According to the release, the man was trapped under the truck, but he was already removed and still conscious and speaking when the respondents came. He was transported to Renown Medical Center by helicopter.
The sheriff’s office was notified of the victim’s death that same day at around 7:50 p.m.
No one deserves such a tragedy. The legal team at Williams Hart extends their deepest condolences to the friends and family of the victim.
