Automobile Accidents

A husband and father of two boys walked to the local bus stop and took two buses to work each day so that his wife and children could use the car. While on the way to the bus station one morning, the father was struck by a hit and run driver and killed.

G&B attorney Michael Gillis brought suit against the hit and run driver who was later identified but fled the country after the accident. A Plymouth County judge found in favor of the family and awarded in excess of one million dollars in damages.

G&B attorney Michael Gillis tried an automobile accident case in which a prison guard was injured when a car full of teenagers turned in front of him on his way to work. The insurer refused to put any offer on the table until just before trial, and the offer was minimal. The jury found for the guard and awarded in excess of $34,000.00 in damages. G&B attorney Michael Gillis subsequently brought suit on behalf of the client against the insurer for the teenager who struck him for unfair and deceptive insurance practices for not making a reasonable offer. Mr. Gillis subsequently had to recuse himself from the case when named as a witness. The G&B client was subsequently awarded double damages and attorney’s fees due toe the insurer’s bad faith.

A Norfolk County jury awarded a G&B client $85,000.00 in damages to a minor who had been drinking with his friend in his friend’s basement and subsequently was injured when his friend hit a tree while driving him home. The case was significant as the defendants argued strenuously that the plaintiff should not receive any damages because he contributed to his injuries by drinking with his friend in the basement. Plaintiffs argued that the contributory negligence of the minor did not exceed that of the driver who know, or should have know, whether he was able to drive based upon the amount of liquor he consumed. The case was tried by Michael Gillis.
