Jerome Moroux obtains $23-million-dollar settlement

Jerome H. Moroux, partner at Broussard, David & Moroux, recently obtained a $23-million-dollar settlement for personal injury claims stemming from a motorcycle accident.  The settlement was one of the largest in the firm’s history, and a career high for Moroux.

The accident was caused by a delivery driver who, while driving on Interstate 49, suddenly changed lanes into the plaintiff’s motorcycle.  The plaintiff was thrown nearly 250 feet before finally landing in a ditch near the highway.  The plaintiff suffered numerous severe injuries, including a traumatic brain injury.  Before trial, Moroux successfully moved the trial court to find that the defendant driver was 100% at fault in the crash.  

The plaintiff’s physicians determined that he would need treatment for the rest of his life, including eventual inpatient care due to the likely progression of his brain injury.  Though the defendant worked to minimize the severity of the client’s injuries, Moroux fought for his client’s treatment needs. 

Ultimately, the defendant settled the case for $23,000,000.00.

“I could not have succeeded without the help of my team, especially Emily Borgen and my paralegal Janey Derouen,” said Moroux.

Through results like these, the firm continues to obtain justice for deserving clients who are injured by no fault of their own. Excellence is a central part of the firm’s culture, and it is embodied by the lengths to which attorneys and staff will go to ensure adequate compensation for their injured clients.
