$1.3M settlement for former sniper injured in bridge crash

South Carolina Lawyers Weekly

Howard Taylor’s victory on behalf of his client was reported in the journal, South Carolina Lawyers Weekly.

Charleston attorney Howard Taylor prevailed for his client, who was injured in an automobile accident and recovered more than $1 million dollars. Using an umbrella policy to recover damages beyond an initial pre-suit settlement, Howard Taylor added his client’s common-law wife to the case by including her claim for loss of consortium.

The client, who served as a sniper in the Vietnam War and later operated a construction firm, discovered that he had a benign thoracic spine tumor, which had to be surgically removed. Before the accident, that tumor had been completely asymptomatic.  A team of experts including a life care planner, a vocational consultant, and an economist helped Howard make the significant recovery.
