Matthews wins three jury verdicts in six weeks

Timely Insights on Laws, Issues and New Developements

David P. MatthewsHOUSTON  –  Matthews & Associates Law Firm was associated with three winning jury verdicts in a six-week span this Spring, averaging more than $2 million each. In March the firm won a $3 million verdict in Philadelphia for a child injured by Johnson & Johnson’s drug Topamax. On April 3 a 12-person jury in Dallas awarded a woman $1.2 million in another J & J case, this one against the company’s plastic transvaginal mesh sling used to treat stress urinary incontinence. Then on April 22, the firm won a $2.95 million jury award in Dallas for a Texas family whose health and property were damaged by fracking giant Aruba Petroleum.

All three verdicts will likely be challenged or appealed by defense firms billing their corporate employers by the hour, and Matthews & Associates will tackle those next challenges as they occur.

“Corporations have for several years worked hard to control the judiciary at the Appellate and Supreme Court levels,” said attorney David Matthews. “So maybe a jury decision doesn’t mean what it used to in Texas and some other places. Nevertheless, we feel good about our recent successes before multiple juries. They have shown again and again that the jury system works, despite massively financed corporate efforts to undermine it with duplicitous scams like tort deform.”
