1.8 Million Jury Verdict for Motorcycle Wreck Victim

Greene & Phillips Injury Lawyers Secure $1.8 Million Jury Verdict against Hut American Group for Injured Saraland Resident

MOBILE AL, 8/31/2023 – Greene & Phillips – Attorneys at Law, a local firm with a 25-year legacy of advocating for injury victims, announces a victory on behalf of their client, a 39 year-old man from Saraland. A Mobile Circuit Court jury on Wednesday awarded the client a $1.8 million verdict against Hut American Group following a three day trial.

In June of 2021, the client was riding his motorcycle when a delivery driver failed to yield the right of way and pulled into his path. The driver was delivering pizza for his employer Hut American Group, which owns and operates the Pizza Hut in Saraland. The wreck fractured the client’s left femur in multiple places.

The case was litigated by Attorneys Britt Bethea and David Greene, Managing Partner. Greene said, “The negligence of a company employee while on the clock resulted in a terrible injury and drastic change to our client’s life. Despite clear evidence in the case and their driver’s own admission, Hut never accepted responsibility for the wreck.”

Over the firm’s quarter-century in business, they have helped 20,000+ clients obtain rightful compensation for their injuries.

Each week we honor a standout local high school athlete with the help of Emily Cochran and Fox 10.  This week we’re celebrating Davidson High School‘s senior running back, DJ Butler.

Butler had a standout performance on Friday as the Warriors took on Hillcrest-Evergreen in their brand new stadium for the first game. DJ ran for an incredible four touchdowns and added another score through the air, leading Davidson to a resounding 59-46 victory. His big night helped the Warriors get their season off to a perfect 1-0 start in their new home.

DJ was certainly thrilled with his performance but gave most of the credit to his teammates. “I feel like I just contributed to my team and try to just do my role the best I can,” Butler said modestly. Winning this award meant a lot to the talented running back. “It shows that we’ve been out here putting in the summer work and everything, you know, doing all we can.”

Davidson head coach Rick Cauley was full of praise for Butler. “You know, he got off to a really quick start. We got a turnover and scored a couple plays after that and it really never stopped,” Cauley noted.

Off the field, DJ is described as a great kid who’s really down to earth and very mature. He enjoys photography in his spare time and can often be found documenting other Davidson sporting events behind the lens of a camera.

“DJ’s a wonderful young man, fantastic athlete,” Attorney David Green said of the Coastal Carolina commit, “Congratulations to DJ and the Warriors!”

Butler has clearly worked very hard to put himself in a position to succeed this season. With his talent and character, we expect big things from DJ as the season continues and his college career with the Chanticleers .

Ava Hodo awarded Athlete of the Week

Congratulations to Orange Beach High School freshman catcher, Ava Hodo, for winning this week’s Greene & Phillips Athlete of the Week award!

Emily Cochran drove over to Orange Beach High School on Wednesday to present the award to the very talented freshman catcher who has 11 home runs so far this season and 39 RBI.

Maco coach, Shane Alexander, said he’s not surprised at how well Ava has done this year, “Yeah, she’s probably one of the best hitters in the state, and we knew that as a seventh grader and an eighth grader, and she’s kind of taken it up a little bit, especially in the home run numbers. She’s got 11 so far, and the first two years she had nine. So the power numbers are there. The biggest thing is she’s just consistent.”

When asked about what got her to this level, Hodo responded, “I set goals at the beginning of the season to break some home run records that I’ve had. But I think I’ve done good situational hitting, trying to be a good teammate. That’s probably my biggest goal this year. So hopefully we can continue to have a good season and I can continue to help contribute to my team.”

Coach Alexander describes Hodo as “Very humble. You wouldn’t know it. Even as a seventh grader, she hit the walk-off home run to win our first state championship, and she’s a coach’s dream!”

Hodo said “I just don’t like being cocky. I’m glad. I’m proud of myself. But, you know, I have to work hard every single day and work hard no matter what. Nothing’s given to you. So I just want to continue to make my community proud and my teammates proud.”

Congratulations to Ava and the Makos back-to-back state champions. They’re now looking for that third.

David Greene of Greene & Phillips Injury Lawyers commented on the accomplishment. “What an outstanding team. And Ava has a great future ahead of her. Congratulations to the Orange Beach Highschool Makos and good luck!
