$10 Million Award Won by Tulsa Personal Injury Lawyer Upheld
Elliot Williams died of dehydration and other complications after the staff at Tulsa County Jail left him unable to reach water left near him due to a serious neck injury.
Our Tulsa personal injury attorneys fought for justice for Elliot and won a $10.25 million settlement for his estate. That verdict was recently upheld and a new trial sought by Tulsa County officials was denied.
“The evidence was sufficient for a reasonable jury to conclude that one or more jail detention officer or medical provider was deliberately indifferent to Mr. Williams’s serious medical needs and that Sheriff Glanz maintained a custom or practice of neglecting to remedy deficient medical services at the jail,” the appellate court wrote in its ruling. The appellate ruling also rejected other claims from county officials and Glanz, including whether a $250,000 punitive damages award against Glanz was excessive.
