Texas Thirteen District Court of Appeals Affirms Doyle Win
On May 10, 2011, the Court of Appeals for the Thirteenth District of Texas affirmed the judgment of the trial court that the surviving family of an employee who was injured at his workplace was entitled to death benefits under Texas law.
Following an on-the-job injury, the employee had died of an accidental overdose of pain medication related to his injuries. Despite the established law that such a death qualified for death benefits under Texas law, the insurer continued to fight the employee’s family’s entitlement to death benefits through trial and on appeal.
Doyle successfully represented the employee’s family in the underlying case and on appeal.
