Brantley White focuses his practice on defective tire litigation, automotive product liability, commercial truck wrecks, and general negligence cases including workplace accidents and premises liability cases. Brantley’s trial experience spans two decades and includes numerous seven and eight figure verdicts in both general negligence cases and product liability cases.
Brantley has successfully resolved many cases against Ford Motor Company, General Motors and Chrysler by meticulously gathering evidence to prove the availability of safer alternative designs including the following: stronger roofs (reinforced roof pillars), improving vehicle stability (by managing vehicle height to width ratios to prevent rollovers), preventing post collision fuel fed fires (fuel line cut-off valves and safer fuel tank placement) and the inclusion of safer vehicle restraint systems (improved seat belt design and air bag sensors). Brantley has successfully recovered in excess of $250,000,000 in settlements and verdicts for his clients from lawsuits alleging defects in automobiles, tires, and vehicle child restraints.
His representative experience includes one of the largest personal injury verdicts in Waco Federal Court history on behalf of a motorcyclist who was severely injured after being struck by a tractor-trailer; a substantial verdict for the family of a Laredo man killed by a Burlington Motor Carriers tractor trailer as well as the largest single injury tire product liability verdict in Texas for an individual injured by a defective BF Goodrich tire.
Mr. White’s knowledge in litigating and trying cases involving dangerous premises defects and activities has resulted in settlements exceeding $50,000,000 and the following 7-figure premises liability jury trial verdicts: Samaniego v. Garrett Paving, Nueces County TX negligent supervision of work site; Weiss v. Rough Creek Lodge, Dallas County TX; Hines v. Railserve Inc., Fulton County GA.
