In a Texas work injury and defective product lawsuit, Houston personal injury law firm Vujasinovic & Beckcom was not satisfied with the initial amount of $175,000 offered to their client from the insurance company. Their client was a struck in the head while training on a machine which caused a herniated disk and required neck surgery. A safety expert working with the Houston accident attorneys stated that the machine was poorly designed and defective. After 5 days of trial in Houston federal court, the jury awarded the accident victim $476,303. This is an example of how insurance companies will wait until the last minute to give an offer and will often lowball in an attempt to avoid going to trial.
