The motorcycle owner settled just before the statute of limitations expired, making suit unnecessary. (2009)

A  Dallas police officer on duty in his patrol unit was overrun by a commercial vehicle at the intersection of Northwest Highway and Boedeker in Dallas.

Negligent Employee Retention/Premises Security Liability

A security guard at an apartment complex in McKinney, Texas sexually assaulted a resident’s little girl and then tried to take his own life.

Armstrong and his law firm. (January 2000)

General Negligence/Premises Liability

An off duty police officer, his wife (a police investigator) and their children were viewing a retired dentist’s home for possible purchase. While being shown the rear deck, it collapsed under the husband, causing a comminuted fracture of the distal tibia (ankle). An expert found the deck contained undisclosed wood rot and evidence of termite infestation. Suit was brought against the homeowner and his realtor, resulting in settlement before trial (2014).

A Garland woman sustained serious injury when she was thrown out of bed by a natural gas pipeline explosion on the adjacent block. The utility company settled the case after a lawsuit was filed by the Armstrong firm. (2003)

Attack by Dangerous Animal

In 2009, a 5 year old girl  was brutally attacked by a male Great Dane outside her residence in Mansfield, Texas.  It took several adults to free the girl from the dog’s control. The girl required over 100 surface and subcutaneous stitches. Our investigation revealed that the same dog had attached another child only two months earlier in the same neighborhood, but the owner continued to walk the dog. After filing suit for both physical and psychological damages, Armstrong the Law Firm settled the case for one of the highest sums theretofore seen in such cases. (2011)
