Mitchum v. BB Carolina Holdings
In March of 2018, Sam McGee and his co-counsel Jon Moore received a jury verdict of $3,850,000.00 in a case involving the death of a construction worker who was killed when a trench collapsed on him at a construction site. The defendant general contractor blamed Mr. Mitchum for his own death, and only made very low settlement offers before trial. The jury found that the general contractor was grossly negligent in its handling of the construction site and its hiring of a sub-contractor unqualified for trenching work. This case is believed to be the highest jury verdict in Union County history for personal injury or wrongful death.
