Notable Verdicts and Settlements

The firm has recovered millions in damages for the injured, and is ready to help you. Recent notable verdicts and settlements we’ve obtained include:

  • Truck Accidents: Tragically, a family of five, including a baby, were rear-ended by an 18-wheeler while stopped to make a turn. All of the family members were injured, but this case involved a terrible loss – the baby was thrown from the vehicle and died. The family was able to recover a large out-of-court settlement, including compensation for the terrible and unnecessary loss of the innocent child.
  • Vehicle Accidents: One of our clients, a 21-year-old man, was a passenger in a dump truck that was hit by a negligent driver, pushing the dump truck off the road and into a ravine, where the young man died before emergency medical personnel arrived at the scene. His wife and small child not only suffered the terrible loss of a loved one, they also lost his earning capacity, support, companionship and love, and the child lost the love and guidance of the father. David Gordon negotiated a significant out-of-court settlement without the need to file a lawsuit.
  • Car Accidents: A case involving a negligent driver led to a victim facing surgeries to attempt to resolve injuries to her back. She was unable to function as she had in the past, including the most common household duties, interaction with children, shopping, exercise or other activities. David Gordon engaged with the insurance company, which was trying to claim that her injuries were not accident-related, but were preexisting conditions. He was able to resolve this case for his client for a very large sum, negotiated in mediation.
  • Work Injuries: A client of the firm was injured on the job when a package crashed into her, pinning her and injuring both knees. Over the following four years, both knees required surgery, and she was finally terminated because she missed so much work. She was offered a modest sum from her employer (Federal Express), which is when she made the decision to speak with David Gordon. His involvement in the case led to an award five times what was originally offered by the company.
  • Work Injuries: A worker suffered a serious back injury while working for a retail tire outlet. He lost his job as a result of the injuries he sustained, and he was offered a paltry level of compensation through workers’ comp in a settlement offer. He then got David Gordon involved. David chose to file the claim in Tennessee rather than in Mississippi, as the benefits are higher in TN. Ultimately, the insurance company paid the injured man 30 times the original settlement offer.
