Evan recently represented a young lady blinded in one eye due to a defective airbag in a Nissan vehicle. She was only 15 years old at the time of the accident. After years of working on the case, it went to trial in 2023. Despite Nissan’s claims, Evan, Kendall Dunson, and Mike Andrews successfully proved that the airbag was defective. After two weeks of trial, a Mobile County, Alabama jury awarded $8.5 million in damages, marking Evan’s largest verdict as lead counsel. But more importantly, Evan and his colleagues ensured that the young girl would be financially secure for any future medical needs or issues that may arise due to the accident.
In 2020, Evan and Kendall handled a case involving a defective industrial machine that caused severe injuries to our client’s hand and arm. The Italian manufacturer had added guards to their machines in Italy after a similar accident, but not in the US. The trial resulted in a $774,000 verdict, and guards were finally added to the US machines.
In 2016, Evan and Kendall tried an on-the-job products case involving a defective steel furnace. Our client sustained catastrophic burn injuries after contacting molten iron heated in the furnace. The furnace simply needed a guard to prevent exposure. After a weeklong trial, the jury agreed and awarded our client $500,000. As suggested, guards were added to the furnace, preventing future injuries.
These on-the-job product liability cases are some of the most rewarding of Evan’s career. In cases like these, the impact of his work is often immediately visible when the defendants change a defective design, add necessary safety measures, or take other actions to safeguard future employees from getting injured. He finds it especially rewarding to stand up for hard-working men and women and to effect positive change that will prevent others from being similarly hurt.
Evan has also recently handled multiple fire cases, resulting in deaths and life-altering burn injuries. These cases are particularly challenging because the ensuing fire destroys or damages much of the evidence. The challenge these cases present makes recovering a settlement on behalf of clients extremely rewarding.
