Verdicts: Harwood v. Custom Foods
$2 million+ Settlement for Traumatic Brain Injury
As a truck driver, Jack Harwood was making a delivery to Custom Foods.
The company's loading dock did not have sufficient room for Mr. Harwood
to open his trailer's barn type swing outdoors. The company directed
him to park in the median of the adjacent busy street to prepare his truck
When Mr. Harwood opened the trailer door, it swung into the traffic lane.
An oncoming vehicle struck the door, knocking Mr. Harwood to the ground
and causing him to sustain a traumatic brain injury that disabled him
The defendant claimed the accident was entirely Mr. Harwood's fault.
Biren Law Group developed evidence, however, showing that the company
was negligent and the loading dock was dangerous. In the end the company
settled for $2+ million.
