Case Verdicts and Settlements

Hensley Cloninger, P.C. takes pride in its endeavor to win compensation for our clients. While all cases are different and no attorney can guarantee results, we wanted to show some of the past successes our lawyers have achieved on behalf of our injury clients. These past results should not be construed to suggest the likely outcome of your case.


  • $330,000 – On behalf of a motorcyclist struck by a vehicle. We were assured that the first $30,000 was all the insurance coverage available, but our research led us to another $300,000 for our client.
  • $100,000 – On behalf of a woman struck by a car in a parking lot. The impact aggravated pre-existing conditions and the insurance company paid the full amount of their coverage.
  • $150,000 – On behalf of a man injured in a rear-end collision. The driver that hit him was on the clock. The insurance company had offered less than half this amount but then offered the full amount after the firm developed the case through litigation.


  • $5.9 MILLION DOLLAR VERDICT – Served as lead trial attorney and obtained the largest single plaintiff’s verdict on record in Western North Carolina on behalf of a 5-year-old boy with cerebral palsy allegedly caused by the negligence of his doctor during a vacuum extraction delivery. Additional amounts were obtained for the parents.
  • $4.75 MILLION DOLLAR SETTLEMENT – On behalf of child who suffered brain damage allegedly caused by a delay in proper diagnosis and treatment.
  • $3.25 MILLION, $2.35 MILLION, $2 MILLION, $2 MILLION, $1.55 MILLION, $1.5 MILLION and $1.1 MILLION in SETTLEMENTS – On behalf of children with brain damage and cerebral palsy allegedly caused by medical negligence during their delivery.
  • $850,000 SETTLEMENT – On behalf of 64-year-old man with partial paralysis allegedly caused by physician’s failure to properly diagnose a spinal fracture following a fall.

  • $2,370,000 MILLION DOLLAR SETTLEMENT – On behalf of a man injured in a motor vehicle collision and suffering multiple injuries. The comp insurance was actually paying some benefits to him but we advised him of many other benefits he was entitled to and we negotiated this settlement just before a hearing.
  • $1,544,000 MILLION DOLLARS – On behalf of a man who fell off of a work truck and suffered a brain injury.
  • $685,000 – On behalf of a man injured in a motor vehicle collision and suffering a brain injury.

  • $275,000 on behalf of a woman injured when trying to open a door the employer knew to be broken. The employer had been warned of this danger several times, and the woman suffered significant injuries when the door stuck and the contents inside that door shifted.
  • $200,000 SETTLEMENT – With an insurance company on behalf of a disabled professional who was denied benefits under their long-term disability policy.
