November, 1992 – In this case, Our client was backed over by a dump truck and killed. The dump truck had no backup alarm on it. The company claimed that the backup alarms were not necessary on dump trucks at that time and that even if one had been on there, it was not loud enough for our deceased client to have heard it. Ironically, there was construction going on outside the courthouse, and while defendants were making their closing statement saying that the backup alarms were not loud enough, the jury heard backup alarms from the construction very loudly. The jury awarded a large amount which helped make all dump trucks safer by encouraging companies to put backup alarms on all their vehicles in the future.

Several years ago my brother and sister -in-law were in a terrible car accident. My sister in-law was paralyzed from her neck down. Beasley Allen handled the case for my brother to see to it that my sister-in-law received the proper and necessary care she needed. I appreciate the attorneys and staff of Beasley Allen in handling this matter quickly and in a positive manner. Good job Beasley Allen!!
