Kyle Farrar featured in The Legal Intelligencer article, “Jury Awards $10.6M to Mother Who Lost Arm in Minivan Crash”

The Legal Intelligencer newspaper interviewed Kyle Farrar following a record jury verdict and settlements in a Pennsylvania lawsuit in which a mother and her baby daughter were seriously injured in a crash caused by a defective Bridgestone truck tire.

Writes The Legal Intelligencer: “According to Houston attorney Kyle Farrar of Farrar & Ball, who was the lead plaintiffs attorney in the case, along with Wesley Ball, the trial centered around the trucking company’s failure to call 911. Farrar said he focused arguments on an internal document from the trucking company outlining that their policy instructed drivers not to accept responsibility for accidents.

“I think that caused the jury to think their conduct was outrageous,” he said.
