Two partners from Beaumont’s The Ferguson Law Firm recently recovered a record-breaking settlement in a Mild Traumatic Brain Injury case.  Managing Partner Chip Ferguson, and Equity Partner, Cody A. Dishon, secured a settlement of $7,750,000.00 for a 58-year-old Beaumont woman who suffered a mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) in 2020.  According to both local and national news outlets, this is one of the highest recoveries ever obtained for a mTBI victim.

Mr. Ferguson commented: “This recovery protects our client’s future and assures she will have access to the best medical care available.  Our only job is to provide for our clients and, here, we did so in record fashion.  Nationally, it is one of the best recoveries in this type of case.  That is a testament to a lot of hard work by a lot of people at our law firm.”

Mr. Dishon added that “This injury presented a challenge for us.  Unlike a severe or moderate brain injury, a mild traumatic brain injury generally does not appear on traditional neuroimaging studies such as a standard MRI or CT scan.  And that was the case here, something the defense lawyers relied upon in defending the case.  We arranged for our client to undergo more advanced neuroimaging testing that demonstrated our client’s mild traumatic brain injury.  We then had other testing and retained the best experts in the field to help explain our client’s brain injury.  The biggest misunderstanding about a mild traumatic brain injury is the impact on the victim.  It is anything but mild.  Here, the impact on our client profoundly changed her life causing disruption professionally, economically, socially, and emotionally.”

Mr. Ferguson concluded by thanking his and Mr. Dishon’s staff.  “I would be remiss if I did not give thanks, and most of the credit, to certain people at our law firm who made this possible: Ashlie Allen, Jessica Burkett, Melissa Wesolowski, and Yulisa Ceja.  They are the best in the business, and we are lucky to have them.  I am also very grateful to local attorney Cody Rees for letting us work with him on this case.”

The Ferguson Law Firm, LLP continues to maintain offices in Beaumont and Orange, Texas.  The law firm represents victims who have suffered traumatic brain injuries and continues to be nationally recognized for record-breaking recoveries.  Mr. Ferguson and Mr. Dishon previously resolved a mTBI case for $1.75 million and another brain injury case for $3.8 million.   Mr. Ferguson also recently settled another mTBI for $3 million.
