While playing with his dad in a city park in Dallas, a young boy wandered off and fell into a water-filled drainage ditch and nearly drowned. Though rescuers were able to revive him, the boy suffered massive brain damage. The City of Dallas denied responsibility, blamed the father and swore there were no prior similar incidences in the park. The family had been represented by another law firm, but that firm chose to withdrew from the case. After turning to us, we subpoenaed long-archived documents, put people under oath and discovered 3 other small children had previously drowned in the same ditch. During trial the Dallas City Counsel convened a special closed-door session to get the case settled. Special trusts were established and structured annuities secured to meet the lifetime medical needs of the boy and to compensate his parents for their tremendous loss.
