Past Livestock Case Example

Nature of Case:  Motorcycle vs. Cow accident resulting in severe personal injuries.

Outcome:  Case settled for $1,650,000 prior to filing complaint

Background:  This was a difficult liability case involving highly contested issues of whether or not a pasture was properly fenced.  The plaintiff, a 55-year-old male field maintenance manager who loved his job, was injured in a motorcycle accident involving a cow resulting in compartment syndrome of his right leg, a comminuted right tibial plateau fracture, and a right popliteal artery disruption.  He was hospitalized for 3 months and underwent numerous surgeries before returning to work 7 months later.


Recommend Edward Smith

· I used Edward 6-12 months ago.

· Edward handled my Livestock Accident matter.

· I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

We were referred to the Edward Smith Law Offices by a lawyer friend who said they are the best…and he was right. From the first time we met with Ed and Christine, we were treated with respect and compassion. All through the process we were kept informed of the progress of the case and what to expect next. We are very satisfied with the outcome and with the level of professionalism from everyone at the office.
