Taylor | Anderson represented a trucking company whose driver was involved in a head-on collision.  Plaintiff underwent a total hip replacement and developed MRSA more than a year after the motor vehicle accident.  Plaintiff demanded millions in lifetime lost wages and medical expenses, among other noneconomic damages.  Local defense counsel recommended a high settlement – in the range of $3,500,000 and $5,000,000.  Taylor | Anderson objected to the evaluation and took over the defense. 

Medical experts found and prepared by Taylor | Anderson opined the MRSA infection was not caused by the incident, which greatly reduced the value of the case.  The firm’s thorough preparation of the truck driver prior to his deposition also resulted in a $1,000,000-$2,000,000 swing in the value of case based upon his favorable testimony.   

Following Taylor | Anderson’s strategic defense, the case ultimately settled for an amount significantly less than local counsel’s recommendation.
