Zehl & Associates Obtains $23.5 Settlement in Head-On Fatal Wreck

Ryan Zehl, the managing partner at Zehl & Associates, recently obtained a record $23.5 million settlement against a large HVAC supply company in connection with a head-on collision that tragically killed Christina Burley and seriously injured her husband, James Burley.

On July 20, 2017, while the Burleys were driving south on County Road 2611 in Brazoria County, Texas, a Johnson Supply commercial truck veered left from the northbound lane, crossed the center stripe, and slammed into the Burleys head-on. The collision tragically took Christina’s life and left James with internal organ injuries, fractured and crushed bones, and back and neck injuries.

The Burleys’ family members turned to the Houston Personal Injury Lawyers at Zehl & Associates to hold Johnson Supply responsible and ensure they had the financial resources to provide and care for Jimmy for the rest of his life.

James’ older brother, Billy Burley, explained, “after the accident, my brother was in critical condition. I really knew that it was in his best interest to find the best law firm to represent him because of the nature of the accident and his injuries. I went through three different law firms before I came to Zehl & Associates and met with Ryan. That meeting was all I needed. Hiring Zehl & Associates was the best decision that my family and I have ever made. They are without a doubt, the best.”

Mr. Zehl took the lead and after multiple depositions and extensive negotiations, Johnson Supply agreed to pay the Plaintiffs’ demand.

Attorneys Eric Allen and Matt Martin also assisted in the case. For further information or to speak to one of their Experienced Personal Injury Lawyers, please contact Zehl & Associates at 1-888-603-3636.
