Doyle Dennis LLP Sues Greyhound After Greyhound Bus Accident

Doyle Dennis LLP’s client was recently injured while traveling on a Greyhound bus through Albuquerque, New Mexico. Due to the negligence of Greyhound, the bus on which the client was traveling crashed into a cement barrier and flipped.  

While the bus was traveling approximately 60 mph, an altercation between two passengers ensued. Rather than slowing the bus, pulling to the shoulder, or attempting to stop the altercation, Greyhound’s driver failed to take any reasonable action. During the altercation, one of the passengers came into the driver’s space because Greyhound’s plexiglass barrier was insufficient to securely separate the driver from the passengers. Once the passenger was behind the plexiglass barrier, the driver lost control of the bus. As a result of Greyhound’s driver’s failure to adequately respond to the altercation or maintain eye contact on the road and to his surroundings, the bus crashed. Following the crash, the client required assistance to be physically removed from the bus. She was subsequently transported to a hospital.

Greyhound is a common carrier. As a common carrier, Greyhound owed a duty of the utmost care to its passengers, including Doyle Dennis LLP’s client. Further, under the doctrine “respondeat superior,” employers like Greyhound may be liable when their employees, including their drivers, are negligent. After the incident, the client retained Doyle Dennis LLP to file a lawsuit against Greyhound Lines, Inc., for its negligence, which caused the client to sustain serious injuries.

Wrongful Termination Verdict Affirmed by Supreme Court of Texas

On September 3rd, 2022, the Texas Supreme Court denied a petition to review a $1.7 million dollar judgement in favor of Doyle Dennis LLP’s client Joseph Ball against Alleyton Resource Company LLC. The judgement owed to our client will now also include approximately $266,913 in post judgment interest accumulated during the appeal of the verdict.
Doyle Dennis LLP attorneys originally presented the case of Ball v. Alleyton Resource Company LLC in July of 2019 to a Fort Bend County District Court jury. The jury found in the Plaintiff’s favor with a verdict of $1,706,187. The verdict awarded Mr. Ball approximately $1,706,187 in total damages, which includes $164,168, in past lost wages, $675,519 in future lost wages, $100,000 in past mental anguish, $16,500 in future mental anguish, and $750,000 in punitive damages. Alleyton appealed this verdict, and on June 3rd, 2021 the Fourteenth Court of Appeals, in Houston, Texas, affirmed the initial judgment in favor of Doyle Dennis LLP and their client Joseph Ball.
Mr. Ball worked for Alleyton Resources as a ready-mix concrete truck driver for nearly a decade. He unfortunately suffered an on-the-job injury and instituted worker’s compensation proceedings regarding the matter. Mr. Ball was then terminated as a result. Chapter 451 of the Texas Labor Code expressly prohibits retaliation or discrimination against employees for filing a workers’ compensation claim in good faith. Doyle Dennis LLP was retained to litigate the wrongful termination claim on behalf of Mr. Ball and his family. During the trial, Doyle Dennis LLP’s team submitted evidence that Alleyton violated its own policies, concealed the motive for Mr. Ball’s termination, contradicted its basis for the termination, and failed to accurately and timely document the termination. As part of the verdict, Doyle Dennis LLP and their client are entitled to substantial pre and post judgment interest and costs.

Houston Police Officer Runs Over Innocent Bystander

Michael Wayne Jackson was walking to get a haircut on December 4, 2021 when he was struck and killed by a Houston police officer. According to the Texas Department of Transportation report, the officer was “traveling at an unsafe speed for the roadway conditions and performed a faulty evasive action to avoid stopped traffic by going on the sidewalk.”  As a result of the officer’s complete disregard for safety, his vehicle collided with Mr. Jackson, who was walking on the sidewalk.  Approximately 126 minutes after the collision near Reed Road and Scott Street, Mr. Jackson was pronounced deceased at the scene.  Mr. Jackson is survived by his wife, Janice Jackson, and children.
