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.”

Significant Settlement After Deadly School Bus Crash


GREENE & PHILLIPS, LLC and BEASLEY ALLEN LAW FIRM reach settlement in deadly SCHOOL BUS crash

The settlement was reached with corporate defendants IC Bus and Navistar and one individual driver whose negligent actions led to the fatal crash.

Mobile, Ala. (May 10, 2022) –

“While the individual drivers’ negligence initiated the crash, IC Bus and Navistar were ultimately responsible for Mrs. Welch’s death,” said Beasley Allen’s lead products liability lawyer Greg Allen. “IC Bus and Navistar’s decision to use inadequate and ineffective roof supports were the primary contributors to this needless tragedy.”

According to David Greene, “This settlement will have resounding implications and will hopefully lead to safer bus designs for our children. Mobile tax dollars are currently being spent on buses that have a safety-related defect.”

On Oct. 10, 2019, Kimberleigh Welch, a school bus driver for the Mobile County Public School System, was traveling south on I-65. Brandon Barner was traveling in a 2017 Nissan Altima in the left lane adjacent to the school bus when Mr. Barner moved right, causing the bus to veer off the exit ramp and tip over, causing the roof to collapse onto Mrs. Welch, suffocating her.

IC Bus and Navistar placed a defective, unsafe bus on the market without adequate roof and body structure. The rollover occurred at only 12 miles per hour. The corporate defendants created an unreasonable risk of harm by failing to use adequate designs that were available at the time the bus was designed, manufactured and sold. The defendants continue placing at risk the lives of school children and school bus drivers every day when these passengers board the defendants’ defective school buses.

The case was filed in the Circuit Court of Mobile County, Alabama, case number 02-CV-2019-903280.00. According to Allen, Presiding Judge Micheal Youngpeter was instrumental in getting the case resolved for this deserving family.  Greene & Phillips lawyer Britt Bethea and Beasley Allen lawyers Stephanie Monplaisir and Kendall Dunson also represented the family in this case.
