County Mccullough County Trials

At Brock Person Guerra Reyna, we have tried hundreds of cases over the years, too many to include in this website. We have, however, chosen to include each of those cases governed by a jury verdict where the amount sought was in excess of $500,000. It is important to note that we have included every case tried under this broad category, not just select verdicts.

Burgess v. Stephens Martin Paving (McCullough County) Plaintiff was a passenger in a vehicle being driven on a state highway that lost control due to an allegedly dangerous drop off on the road (where it transitioned from paved highway to milled asphalt). The Plaintiff was ejected and was killed. The Plaintiff contended that the roadway drop off was dangerous and failed to meet the plans/specifications set forth by the Texas Department of Transportation. The roadway was under construction at the time of the incident. Several witnesses were called (including the county judge) who testified that there were no warning signs present and that the transition was "like driving on ice." The Plaintiff asked the jury to award $4,600,000. The pre-trial demand was $1,000,000. The pre-trial offer was $175,000. The jury returned a zero verdict in favor of the Defendant.
