Joe Durham was able to complete a confidential, seven figure settlement for the wrongful death of a minor child involved in a collision with a tractor trailer.

Joe Durham, Jr. was named a “Rising Star” in the field of Medical Malpractice Litigation by Atlanta Magazine.

Fred Lee successfully recovered the limits of liability coverage as well as commercial underinsured motorist coverage on behalf of a school teacher severely injured in a multiple vehicle collision in Mitchell County, Georgia.

Fred Lee was successful in obtaining appropriate medical treatment for his client, a truck driver catastrophically injured in a workers’ compensation accident.  The indemnity component of the client’s case was resolved by settlement years ago, but medical liability remains open.  The Administrative Law Judge found in favor of the client, ordering the employer to provide and pay for the treatment sought.  Moreover, the Administrative Law Judge also included in his award an assessment of attorneys’ fees and expenses against the employer.  The employer conceded the substantive issue regarding the medical treatment, but appealed the assessed fees and expenses to the Appellate Division of the State Board.  The Appellate Division affirmed the award.
