$15 Million Premises Liability Verdict, Texas
$9 Million Medical Malpractice Verdict, Alabama

On October 11, 2019, an Alabama jury returned a $9 million verdict for the family of Hope Johnson in a wrongful death medical malpractice case. This verdict breaks records for Lee County.

“Hope’s death is tragic because it was entirely preventable. We don’t know the exact number of patients seen that day, but it was too many,” according to Turnbull. “Patient well-being, not profits, should be the primary goal of healthcare.”

The verdict is the largest in a Lee County medical-malpractice case. The Johnson family released the following statement: “We are very pleased with the jury decision in the wrongful death case of our precious daughter Hope. We continue to feel her absence every day and pray this decision brings about much-needed change. Our chief desire is that this case will set a precedent that will prevent this from happening to another family or college student, not just in Lee County, but in Alabama as a whole.”

“I truly appreciate the way Alan and his assistant, Nikki, handled my case. My case was very sensitive and emotional, but they never let my emotions turn them off. They handled me gently, with patience, but very firmly on the business side. I’d definitely be calling him first if something else happens in my life.”
