February, 2000 – The Plaintiff in this case was killed when a Gold Kist agricultural delivery truck backed over him. This incident occurred on the farm property while the employee was backing the truck. This truck did not have a functioning backup alarm mechanism, which is recognized to be a needed safety feature for all large trucks. This requirement is federally mandated for construction and off-road equipment. In this case, a backup alarm would have saved the life of a good family man. The jury awarded this verdict to try to stop this type of accident from happen in the future.

Wonderful to work with

Beasley Allen did a great job with my case. They were wonderful to work with. They were available by phone when I needed them, treated me with the utmost respect and worked hard on my behalf. If a need arises in the future, I would definitely call on them again.
