OCONEE COUNTY, S.C. — An Oconee County jury awarded an auto accident victim who suffered significant physical and emotional injuries $1.1 million in damages on July 31. The plaintiff was represented by Spartanburg-based attorneys Charlie Hodge and Ryan Langley (Hodge & Langley Law Firm).*
The amount of the verdict represented nearly double the last settlement offer from the defendant/insurance company.
Hodge and Langley successfully argued their clients were entitled to be compensated for all their harms and losses that resulted from the wrongful conduct of the defendant.
“We are honored to have represented such fine people in this very difficult time of their lives,” Langley said. “I’ll never forget our clients telling us after the trial that though the financial compensation was certainly appreciated, they really were so happy that the jury believed them, understood them, and acknowledged the pain and heartache they had experienced."
*Any result the lawyer or law firm may have achieved on behalf of clients does not necessarily indicate similar results can be obtained for other clients.
