Personal Injury Attorneys of Grossman Law Offices Negotiate $2.5 Million
Settlement in Dispute with Pilgrim's Pride Corporation Following Death of
DALLAS, June 28, 2013
DALLAS, June 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Dallas personal injury attorneys of
Grossman Law Offices have settled a dispute with Pilgrim's Pride Corporation
for a total of $2,500,000 following the death of James Bynum at Pilgrim's
Mount Pleasant, Texas location.
The dispute arose when Mr. Bynum, a 25-year veteran of Pilgrim's Pride, was
run over by a fellow employee at the Protein Conversion Plant of the Mount
Pleasant location. The accident occurred around 1 a.m. on July 27, 2011 when
Mr. Bynum was working near a shuttle truck on a loading dock and was struck,
and subsequently pinned underneath the truck. Mr. Bynum survived for several
hours underneath the trailer of the truck, suffering immense pain which
ultimately led to his death.
Lead litigant for the Plaintiff Michael Grossman talks about that frightening
night, "Being in the personal injury business for almost 25 years, I've seen
many unfortunate accidents. However, I'll never forget this one. Our client
was actually conscious while the trailer was on top of him and asked the very
man who ran him over to phone his wife. Now, Texas law allows for the recovery
of what's called pain and suffering, essentially what the victim experienced
prior to his or her death. Can you imagine the pain and suffering Jimmy went
through that night?"
As visitors to the firm's website are probably aware, defendants must be
compelled to compensate a victim. This, of course, requires proof, not only of
the pain the victim suffered, but also how and why the accident occurred. The
latter is particularly important, because if a personal injury firm cannot
prove a defendant's liability, there simply is no case.
Expressing the responsibility of the accident and determining the actual
associated costs incurred by the victim and his family proved to be where
Grossman Law Offices' experience really shined. Attorney Grossman continues,
"When you litigate a case of this magnitude, no stone should be left unturned.
So to prove up this case, we first did our own investigation. Then had several
other parties conduct their own investigations. Then had medical experts
detail all the injuries associated with a large truck crushing a man to death.
Then had work safety experts detail what procedures should have been in place
at the plant. Then had economists detail the financial impact on our client
and his family. In every case we handle, we have to go the extra mile to fully
and accurately compensate our clients, and certainly this case was no
After liability was firmly established, and the hardships our clients endured
shown, the Dallas work injury attorneys at Grossman Law Offices were in a
position to push for a quicker resolution than fully litigating the case.
Attorney Grossman concludes, "Settling for a total of $2.5 million is an
excellent figure for our clients, and commensurate with what they and the
victim went through. Not only is litigation expensive, but it also delays our
clients' recovery. At the end of the day, their recovery is what this is all
