Provost Umphrey attorneys Edward Fisher and Joe Fisher earned recognition among the Top Texas Verdicts & Settlements of 2018 based on a comprehensive review by VerdictSearch.
The verdict is the fourth-largest product liability award and ranked 33 overall on the Top Verdicts list.
Jurors in Denton County returned a $4.8 million verdict against ladder manufacturer Werner Co., after finding the company liable for the faulty design and marketing of an aluminum ladder that collapsed, permanently injuring John DeVallee's hand.
The Fisher brothers were on the trial team with attorney Brian Zimmerman of Zimmerman, Axelrad, Meyer, Stern & Wise, P.C., and David L. Cook of Harris Cook LLP.
"We are dedicated to seeking justice for hard-working men and women, and we are honored to be recognized for the hard work we do in preparing cases and trying lawsuits," said Joe Fisher, managing partner of Provost Umphrey.
