Thomas M. Fountain & Associates, PLLC was formed twenty-five years ago today, on July 16, 1992, after a rewarding tenure at two of Houston’s most successful insurance defense/civil litigation firms. In this time, we have assured our clients, past and present, of the full strength, stability, and fortitude that can only come with our thirty-five years of litigation experience.
Throughout the years, Thomas M. Fountain & Associates, PLLC has successfully litigated a number of complex and intriguing cases brought to us by our clients. A few notable highlights from the past;
- Obtained a Take Nothing Judgment for our client airport in a wrongful death case. The tragic death of a young lady which occurred on a taxiway was alleged in a Harris County Court to have been caused by a failure of security on the part of the airport. The jury was asked to award her parents $8,000,000.00.
- Defended client owner/operator of commercial properties where exposures to carcinogens allegedly caused bodily injuries. The exposure allegedly caused several deaths, cancer, damage to immunological systems, and other severe illnesses to approximately twenty-five plaintiffs.
- Obtained a defense verdict for an insurer following a trial in Houston, Harris County, Texas. The Plaintiff’s attorneys alleged breach of contract, fraud, breach of the duty of good faith and fair dealing as well as other causes of action under the Texas Insurance Code. The case arose out of a Hurricane Ike claim and the trial lasted 2 1/2 weeks.
- Obtained a no liability verdict for a Florida based insurer following a trial in Houston, Harris County, Texas. The Plaintiff’s attorneys alleged breach of contract, fraud, breach of the duty of good faith and fair dealing as well as other causes of action under the Texas Insurance Code. The case arose out of a claim by an owner of a rental property that the insurer failed to pay a claim for many thousands of dollars of property damages to the dwelling. The plaintiffs asked for treble damages and over $125,000.00 in attorney fees.
As we look back on the last quarter century, we are thankful for the loyal support of the community surrounding us. Without our clients, we would not be where we are today. And for that, we thank you. Thank you all for a memorable twenty-five years and we look with hope to the next twenty-five!
