Personal Injury Mobile Case Spotlights

Beasley Allen’s Mobile case has profound effect on Dram Shop Law in Alabama

Recently we received both clarity and justice in a case our firm tried in Mobile County, Alabama. During the course of the litigation in this case, the Alabama Supreme Court issued an opinion that changed the landscape of Alabama Dram Shop Law.

We wrote about the result in the November issue of The Jere Beasley Report. Clarity on the law was first received from the Alabama Supreme Court and, subsequently, justice was obtained for our clients in the case that involved the death of a loved one. The case was settled at the conclusion of trial just before the jury delivered a $12.4 million verdict for the Plaintiff.

Liability in this case was based on what is known as a Dram Shop Act. The three main holdings from the Alabama Supreme Court are:

  • circumstantial evidence can be used to establish visible intoxication,
  • a death claim can be brought under the Dram Shop and the decedent is entitled to compensatory and punitive damages, and
  • the parties are entitled to punitive damages if they prove their claim without having to prove a heightened standard of conduct or a heightened burden of proof.

The practical effect this has on Dram Shop Law in Alabama is momentous. As an example, before this opinion, Defendants would argue the Dram Shop Act was a strict liability statute and the only issue was whether the Defendant sold alcohol to a person who was visibly intoxicated. Defendants would argue its policies, procedures and training were not relevant to whether a person was visibly intoxicated when served. Our Mobile case has changed all of that.

Colin Lacy describes Beasley Allen as a ‘winning team’ after $18.79 million verdict in truck accident case

In March 2015, a Mobile, Alabama, jury returned an $18.79 million verdict in favor of Plaintiff Colin Lacy in a case against Empire Truck Sales, LLC of Mobile, and IMMI of Westfield, Indiana. The verdict included $13.79 million in compensatory damages and an additional $5 million in punitive damages. Mr. Lacy was paralyzed when the Freightliner truck he was driving went out of control around 2:30 p.m. on July 14, 2011, on Interstate 10 near Niceville, Florida. The complaint alleged that Mr. Lacy complained to the company, on that day, that the truck had a vibration in the suspension. As it turns out, Empire Truck Sales, LLC had recently serviced the vehicle and caused the defect in the truck by leaving the lateral control rod detached. Empire also caused a defect in the brake system at the time of service. Colin Lacy’s spine was severed at the T-10 level and he spent more than two months in the hospital following the accident. Mr. Lacy will spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair.

Colin described how attorney Greg Allen, the Beasley Allen trial team and staff helped him and his family cope with the debilitating injuries he sustained in a preventable truck accident. He said his “team” walked with them through every step of the case, ultimately taking it to trial and securing a multimillion-dollar verdict that has provided peace of mind by aiding in his recovery.
