Case Summary

Varughese

In Tarrant County District Court, Perry Law attorneys convinced Court of Appeals that jury award in bodily injury case was offset by fees and costs in defending the case. During original trial, Plaintiff claimed extensive dental work, injuries and plastic surgery was required as a result of injuries sustained in motor vehicle accident. Attorneys tried the case to jury, who awarded the Plaintiff damages as originally requested. Offer of settlement had been filed in case; therefore, Perry Law attorneys argued the award was offset by the fees and costs in defending the case.   Court of Appeals affirmed the ruling and, for the first time, addressed how calculations under the offer of settlement rule were to be completed. This is a significant ruling on the standing offer of settlement procedure.
