Steve Kherkher, Cesar Tavares, and Kevin Haynes got a unanimous $6,500,000 verdict today in a trucking death case in the 96th District Court of Tarrant County, Judge Wallace. Our Hispanic parents lost their son in a catastrophic trucking collision. Defendants strategically stipulated to liability right before trial, and the judge excluded all liability evidence. The jury simply heard that it was a “motor vehicle incident.” We tried the case on damages only, including mental anguish and loss of companionship. The most the defendant Great Southwestern Construction offered was $1.5 million because our Hispanic clients were parents “of an adult child” in a conservative venue.
