Government Vehicle Nearly Kills Three Friends Riding Motorcycles
Stephen, Robert, and Misty were riding their motorcycles home from dinner one night when a government vehicle turned into their lane of travel. All three were catastrophically injured.
Misty could not talk for weeks and could only communicate with a dry-erase board. Robert broke over 9 bones. Stephen shattered multiple bones in his leg.
Aaron Broussard was able to prove the turning signals on the government truck were defective and the driver violated Louisiana law.
Broussard + Williamson recovered the policy limits of 3.1 million in less than a year after the crash.
HOW WE HELPED THE PLAINTIFF
One weekend Aaron decided he was going to review the evidence until he figured out the key to the case. After about 10 hours of looking at photos and videos, he compared two videos of the defendant truck and realized the blinkers were flashing at a slightly different rate in the two videos.
A side-by-side comparison confirmed what Aaron had thought. That discovery led him to uncover that the owner of the truck had replaced the taillight after the crash (tampering with evidence) after they claimed it hadn’t been touched. Whether the lights were working at the time of the crash was a big deal. The case settled shortly after this discovery.
“Aaron Broussard traveled to meet with us and gave us a beacon of hope. He gave us his word to which has been worth its weight in gold. We have been so blessed to find great and amazing attorneys that feel more like family during our journey.”
