Seven Figure Multi-Party Settlement for Harris County Mechanic

Lena Laurenzo secured a million-dollar result for a Harris County employee who was tragically hurt while performing his job in Houston, Texas.

On December 3, 2020, approximately at 8:42 a.m., a Harris County Toll Road Authority emergency responder was called to the scene of a vehicle stranded on the western portion of the Beltway 8 loop. During this morning rush hour traffic, the emergency responder attended to a vehicle out-of-service on the inside or left shoulder of the tollway. There was a digital signboard displaying warnings of a stopped vehicle on the shoulder with arrows directing northbound traffic to move over to the right. There was also an emergency vehicle parked on the shoulder with flashing emergency warning lights to warn oncoming traffic further.

A Dodge RAM pickup truck was traveling at highway speeds in the farthest left lane. As the truck approached the area where the emergency responder was working, another vehicle made an unsafe lane change to the left lane and clipped the pickup truck. The pickup truck then ran over the emergency responder while he was kneeling on the ground.

The innocent emergency responder suffered severe injuries and damages due to this pedestrian-highway collision. Before hiring Lena Laurenzo, only one at-fault driver had considered settling with the emergency responder. The emergency responder hired Lena Laurenzo to make sure he was not being taken advantage of by the insurance company and to hold all of the responsible parties accountable for what happened to him. Mrs. Laurenzo was able to secure large settlements with both at-fault drivers while the emergency responder focused on his medical treatment and recovery.
