From Lindsey McKay:

I had the honor of representing Hayley Dorsey, a mom of three young boys ages of 10, 8, and 4. Her husband was suddenly killed when the vehicle he was riding passenger was struck by an 18-wheeler.

There are major voids she and her family grieve as he is ripped from their lives and now mom must fill in all the gaps. 

In this truck accident case, we worked with the local counsel of that county. Even though the collision was contested liability, which means there was evidence that The driver of our vehicle was allegedly partially at-fault and cited for failing to yield to the right of way and colliding with an 18-wheeler, the 18-wheeler was found to be driving over the speed limit and a regular on that route.

We argue that he was not driving safely for the road conditions at the upcoming intersection and was driving faster than the speed limit.

Within six months, we were able to obtain the policy limits of the 18-wheeler company which in this case was S6,000,000.

It is rewarding to know that this result is life-changing for the family and Hayley Dorsey can now spend her time caring for her grieving kids who need a lot of attention and love.

McKay Law Represented the Decedent’s Wife and Mother

The following part is the testimonial from our client Hayley Dorsey:

Settled – No Trial Necessary

I hired Lindsey McKay as my attorney to represent me and my family after the tragic death of my husband in an 18-wheeler collision. We wanted to hire Ms. McKay because she is a mother like me and I knew she would be able to empathize and relate with our grief and fight like a momma bear.  

She is tough! And we trusted her from day one.  Nothing gets past her.  They tried to contest liability, but Ms. McKay got us the full policy of $6,000,000 in less than 6 months.  Now I can focus on taking care of my boys and helping us grieve this horrible loss.

“Wrongful Death” – 18-Wheeler Accident

Client Letter to State Bar of Texas:

To Whom It May Concern at the Texas State Bar; 

I hired Lindsey McKay as was my attorney to represent me and my family after the tragic death of my husband, A.D. happened in Gilmer, Texas on November 12, 2021. 

A.D. was the passenger in a vehicle that was hit by an 18-wheeler. He was immediately care flighted to the hospital where he passed away three days later. 

We found Ms. McKay on Google and hired her as soon as we heard A.D. was badly hurt, just minutes after we found out A.D. was rushed to the hospital. We wanted to hire a female attorney who was also a mother like Ms. McKay because I knew she would be able to empathize and relate to the grief that our family was experiencing. 

I am from Gilmer, Texas and went to school with Brent Goudarzi and Marty Young and my cousin worked at their law office. I did not hire them as my attorney. However, as Ms. McKay explained, the liability in the case was contested. Ms. McKay advised that we work with Goudarzi and Young law firm to strengthen our legal team. I agreed only if Ms. McKay remained the primary attorney for me and my family. I trusted her and felt comfortable talking to her about any questions and issues we had. She is and was my lawyer. 

Although I went to Goudarzi and Young office a few times to sign paperwork, Ms. McKay was always my point of contact during my case. She was the only Attorney whom I had direct contact and she provided support, legal advice, updates and was available when we needed her. Ms. McKay was able to confirm that I was still married to A.D. at the time of the collision. She also connected us with the Guardian Ad Litem and coordinated a meeting. She helped prepare me to meet with him. Ms. McKay ensured we were aware of the date for the Prove-Up hearing and attended the hearing with us. 

Other than the engagement contracts and the release I signed at the end of the case, I was not provided with any drafts of documents unless Ms. McKay sent them to me to review. 

I hope this is sufficient information to confirm Ms. McKay’s responsibility and involvement in the resolution of my case. Without her involvement, we would not have had this result for me and my family.
