ONE OF THE LARGEST WRONGFUL DEATH VERDICTS IN HISTORY.
Heard, Robins & Cloud lead attorney Bill Robins, along with the assistance of Robert J. DeBry and Associates Attorneys George T. Waddoups and J. Brad DeBry have been praised by both law firms for obtaining the largest wrongful death verdict in New Mexico history.
On March 21st of 2013, Kevin Udy’s wife and children had the courage to take the trucking company and management company responsible for a fatal crash to trial, pointing out the unsafe trucking practices which need to be improved to prevent further tragedies such as this. Bill Robins (Santa Fe, NM), George Waddoups (Salt Lake City, UT) and Brad DeBry (Salt Lake City, UT) tried the case for eight days, ultimately awarding the victim’s family 58.5 million dollars in damages. Forty-seven million dollars was awarded for punitive damages while the remaining 11.5 million dollars accounted for the wrongful death and los of consortium claim for Kevin’s family.
Kevin Udy was a senior mechanical engineer for Intrepid Potash. He was killed on March 3rd of 2010. Multiple violations and unsafe practices were repeated by the trucking company leading up to the accident.
The following message was released by the 12-person jury after returning its verdict:
“Our hope is that our judgement will clearly communicate that we expect a much higher standard of safety and training in the trucking industry.”
The two law firms would like to thank all members of the firms who have helped: Justin Kaufman and Alex Barlow (Heard Robins & Cloud LLP), as well as Michael L. Banks and Bryce Kartchner (Robert J. DeBry and Associates).
Both firms handle cases throughout the United States in the areas of personal injury, medical malpractice and mass torts.
