Alexander Shunnarah Trial Attorneys

On Friday, a Montgomery County Circuit Court jury returned a unanimous verdict awarding $15,000,000.00 in damages for the wrongful death of a nine-year-old child in the custody of the Alabama Department of Human Resources at the time of his death.

The child had sickle cell anemia when he was taken into DHR custody. The plaintiff alleged that the DHR case worker’s and foster caregiver’s reckless mismanagement of the child’s specific symptoms and complaints led to the child suffering a sickle cell anemia attack. The child died of complications of the sickle cell crisis at Children’s Hospital in Birmingham in May 2013.

Andrew Moak of Alexander Shunnarah Trial Attorneys, P.C., and Brett Turnbull and Robert LeMoine of Turnbull, Holcomb & LeMoine, P.C. collaborated to prepare the case and take it to trial.
