It’s been a long, hard road to get justice for Richard Hixson, but it all came together on March 20, 2023. Almost four years after being severely injured in a car accident where he was rear-ended, the 29-year Navy veteran was awarded $2,067,408 by a Palm Beach County jury, due in large part to the efforts of GOLDLAW Board Certified ® litigation attorneys Rafael Roca and Spencer Kuvin.
“Just unbelievable,” said Hixson. The last four years were nothing other than a heavyweight battle. I would not have been able to do it without Craig Goldenfarb and these two fine gentlemen.”
Severely injured after his vehicle was rear-ended by an inattentive driver, it took the case three years to come to trial after numerous attempts to settle were rebuffed by the defendant. And once the case did get to the court system, it took three trials to finally get the verdict, after the first trial in June 2022 was declared a mistrial, and the second in October, 2022 was postponed due to the defendant having a family issue. Thankfully, the third time was the charm for Richard Hixson and his family.
“We are so pleased that we were able to obtain the justice that Richard and the Hixson family deserved,” said GOLDLAW’s Rafael Roca. “Despite the challenges of the case, it was a pleasure to represent, and work with Mr. Hixson. He overcame much hardship due to his injuries, and was willing to see a tough case through until the end. It was great to see the jury rule in his favor.”
“I’m so relieved about everything,” said Hixson. “The verdict definitely hasn’t sunk in yet, but I’m very happy with the outcome, and what these gentlemen have done, not only for me, but for my family. I’ll be forever grateful.”
