March, 2010 – A Montgomery County jury awarded the estate of Catherine Parker $2.75 million against Ford Motor Company on March 12, 2010. Parker was killed in July 2007 when her 1999 Ford Explorer rolled over during a crash. Beasley Allen attorneys Benjamin E. Baker, J. Cole Portis and J. Greg Allen represented Parker’s estate against defendant Ford Motor Company.  The jury determined that the Explorer was defective by design because the roof structure is too weak in the event of a rollover crash.

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.
