Default Injured worker lands $70 million in lawsuits against apartment's insurance

Hurt worker is awarded $70 million

Charles Tate was landscaping at a local apartment when he was injured six years ago. He filed suit against the Connecticut based Discover Property & Casualty Insurance Company and was awarded the settlement.

His lawyer, Thomas Rhodes, was also the legal counsel for an lawsuit that resulted in a $160 million verdict. That total was later reduced to $13 million during the appeals.

I think the noteworthy item here is that yes, there are landscapers that show up to work in San Antonio. That's been a big complaint here.

Just want to point out...
He's didn't sue a company, he sued the insurance company that didn't want to pay for his injuries.

This story is not about "Somebody winning a lawsuit"
It's about an insurance company not wanting to pay.

Judgments are made against insurance companies all the time. The "news" is that this may be the largest settlement in Bexar County to date.
