Burger Law represented Barbara Hackworth who was injured while sitting in Waffle House eating breakfast. As she was eating, a car came through the wall of the Waffle House and knocked her off her stool. Allstate Insurance Company would not reasonably settle the case, so we incurred the cost to fly to Arkansas and depose Barbara and her chiropractor for trial. We continued to negotiate the case on behalf of Barbara, but the case was vigorously defended with the insurance lawyer throwing everything and the kitchen sink at us. However, the jury was not fooled. Barbara had approximately $4,600 in medical damages and no wage loss damages — the jury returned a verdict of $23,500 for Barbara against the defendant.
