Coker Law’s Experienced Trial Team Changes the Course of a Case

Posted on Monday, September 28th, 2020

You never know the day when your life will be changed forever.  For Daryl Gleaton, it was a November day in 2016.  He was struck by another vehicle at an intersection when the other driver didn’t yield to oncoming traffic. The force of the impact rolled Mr. Gleaton’s vehicle over almost three full times. His SUV was totaled, the windshield shattered, and glass was hanging from the car. When the police arrived, Mr. Gleaton’s crumpled SUV was still on its side, dangerously blocking traffic at the busy intersection.

A Clear-Cut Case Was Caught in The Courts

The force of the crash caused a mass of serious injuries. Mr. Gleaton’s neck and back were so debilitated from the crash he continues to receive extensive treatment and will need it for years. You may think this sounds like a very clear case of a negligent driver seriously injuring someone and leaving him impaired for the remainder of his life. However, that was not the case.  To add insult to injury, as Mr. Gleaton struggled with the pain and the treatments, his case lingered in the courts for nearly four years.

Mr. Gleaton is a long-time resident of Jacksonville and knew the name Coker Law. He had heard this was the firm to go to if you wanted results.  He decided to reach out to them and is so grateful that he did.  When he met his legal team at Coker Law, he was reassured that this highly trained team in auto and trucking crashes was exactly what he had hoped for and needed. Coker Law put a fresh focus and new energy into his case.

A Life-Changing Resolution

Another day that changed Mr. Gleaton’s life, this time for the better, was June 26, 2020. It’s the day he was awarded $1,000,000 in compensation for his mounting medical bills and his lifelong pain. “That terrifying crash Mr. Gleaton survived was just the start of a long journey of pain and frustration with how his case had been handled before he came to us,” said Attorney Joel Harris, Shareholder at Coker Law. “It’s just something no one should have to go through.” Coker Law focuses on building quality cases for their clients rather than just taking on a large number of cases. Your case won’t stagnate because it will get the focus and attention it deserves.
