SMF Trial Team Lands $300,000 Settlement in Hit and Run Case

Smaller, Select Caseload Provides More Time and Greater Success for Clients

With a smaller caseload that focuses on success rather than high volume, the personal injury and wrongful death attorneys at Stewart, Melvin & Frost are able to dedicate the maximum amount of time, energy, and resources to each case.

The firm’s uncommon Trial Team at Stewart, Melvin & Frost is led by experienced attorneys Mark Alexander and Andrew Gould, who are recognized for their extensive case preparation, responsiveness to each client, and professional service. Their hard work translates into better results in difficult cases where other firms typically fall short.

A good example of their unique “client-first” practice and attention to detail is the recent resolution of a recent hit-and-run crash that occurred on Jesse Jewell Parkway in Gainesville, Ga.

Case Facts:

The Trial Team’s client was waiting to turn left at an intersection on Jesse Jewell Parkway. A pickup truck traveling the opposite direction, drifted into oncoming traffic, striking the client’s car twice. Then the pickup truck pulled back onto his side of the road and sped away. A vigilant witness to the accident followed the pickup truck and took photos of its license plate.

The Stewart, Melvin & Frost Trial Team contacted the witness, tracked down the pickup truck driver and his insurance company.

Where some lawyers may have held back, the Trial Team at Stewart, Melvin & Frost did not let up until they had turned over every stone, speaking with witnesses, law enforcement, and their client’s medical providers. The extra effort built a strong case which quickly led to an insurance settlement of $300,000.

Trial Team attorney Andrew Gould said, “We were able to take the necessary time to work up the case, and in doing so, obtained a truly ‘uncommon’ result.”
