This 2013 case involved a young woman who was rear-ended by another vehicle in DeSoto County, Mississippi. The force of the blow fractured her neck and, unfortunately, she died at the scene of the crash. The at-fault driver had a large liability insurance policy but the defense attorney tried to argue that the deceased’s tail lights were not functioning. Mr. Gilder and Mr. Howell hired a top expert in the field who performed tests on the vehicle and proved that the tail light bulbs were fully functional at the time of the collision. The Defendant’s insurance company paid a settlement in the amount of $1,450,000.00 within about 6 months of the accident.
