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.”

The Law firm of Greene & Phillips is deeply rooted in the local community and is tirelessly dedicated to representing injury victims in Mobile, Birmingham, and throughout the country. Over the firm’s quarter-century in business, they have helped 20,000+ clients obtain rightful compensation for their injuries.

Social Security Disability Denials

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Insurance (SSI) affect millions of Americans, and sometimes obtaining the benefits of these programs can be difficult. Social Security Disability (SSDI and SSI) is a government program for monetary and insurance benefits for those that cannot engage in any substantially gainful activity. It pays benefits to you and certain members of your family if you are “insured,” meaning that you worked long enough and paid Social Security taxes. If you have applied for, and been denied social security disability benefits, you have a very limited period of time to file an appeal. Seek legal representation right away so that someone with experience can assist you in filing the appeal, and requesting a hearing date as quickly as possible.

It is extremely beneficial to seek legal representation in a situation like this because the forms and the process can be quite confusing. An experienced attorney will file an appeal immediately, and send in the appropriate forms and medical documentation to prove your disability. At the hearing, an experienced attorney will frame your case in its best light to prove to the administrative law judge that you are unable to work.

The Social Security Disability office is constantly busy, so it may take a year or two before a hearing date is set to actually hear the appeal. Requesting a hearing as soon as possible will help secure an appeal date quicker.  If you have been denied Social Security, or have any further questions, stop by our office at 51 North Florida Street or call us at (251) 300-2000.  You will meet personally with an experienced disability attorney.
