Johnny Williams, 67, was operating his tractor on a roadway when a dump truck driven by Rubin Harvey for Oxford Construction Co. rear-ended his tractor at a high speed. The impact caused Williams to be thrown off the tractor and into a ditch. He suffered a traumatic brain injury, multiple fractures and other injuries.
Williams spent six weeks in a hospital before being transferred to a rehabilitation facility. He now requires 24-hour care and suffers from memory loss and seizures.
He had earned approximately $15,000 per year and incurred $1.2 million in medical expenses.
Williams sued Rubin Harvey and Oxford Construction claiming that Harvey was negligent in this crash. The jury signed a verdict in favor of Williams for $18 million.
The attorneys successfully handling this lawsuit were W. Earl McCall, Henry E. Williams, Alfred J. Powell, Jr., William A. Irwin and Gregory T. Williams.
At trial, the Williams attorney team presented experts in neuropsychology, economics, physical medicine and life care planning.
