TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Dan Walters, a graduate student pursuing an MBA and a Juris Doctor degree at The University of Alabama, is one of 60 students nationwide selected as a 2016 Tillman Scholar.

Walters was 18 when he joined the military. While serving on active duty, Walters’ assignments included serving as an infantry platoon leader and then a company commander to a unit of more than 200 soldiers and advising local Afghanistan figures of justice. Walters plans to stay in his hometown of Greensboro and use his degrees to practice law, advise new business owners and perhaps start his own business.

Walters plans to stay in his hometown of Greensboro and use his degrees to advise new business owners and, perhaps, start his own business.

“I am honored to have been selected for such a prestigious scholarship,” Walters said. “It means a great deal to me to represent the legacy of Pat Tillman, a great American and a soldier who gave the ultimate sacrifice. And as always, I am proud to represent the University in my endeavors.”

The class of 2016 scholars will receive more than $1.8 million in academic scholarships.

The Pat Tillman Foundation provides scholarships to service members, veterans and military spouses who, according to the foundation’s website, “show extraordinary academic and leadership potential, a true sense of vocation, and a deep commitment to create positive change through their work in the fields of medicine, law, business, education and the arts.”

More than 400 scholarships have been awarded since the Tillman Scholars Program was founded in 2008.

The Pat Tillman Foundation was established in 2004 following Pat Tillman’s death while serving with the 75th Ranger Regiment in Afghanistan.

Attorney Blake Williams Settled Tuscaloosa County Collision Against Drunk Driver

by Prince, Glover & Hayes June 17, 2016

Blake Williams, attorney for Prince, Glover and Hayes, recently settled a case involving two young ladies who were hit by a drunk driver in Tuscaloosa County. Our clients, the two young ladies, were hit head on by a drunk driver who crossed over a median. Both of the cars caught on fire. Our clients were fortunate to escape with their life. However, they sustained multiple broken bones and severe bruising.

Mr. Williams and his team got to work immediately. Mr. Williams made claims with the other driver’s auto insurance company and also with our clients’ auto insurance companies under the underinsured motorist coverage portion of their policies. Mr. Williams fought for many months to get our clients the maximum recovery possible. Ultimately, Mr. Williams achieved just that in resolving the case for six figures on behalf of each client.

Underinsured motorist coverage is fairly inexpensive to add to your policy and has proven to be very valuable. Make sure you have this coverage to protect yourself.

$5.5 Million Verdict in Wrongful Death Case

by Prince, Glover & Hayes May 19, 2016

A Hale County jury has returned a multi-million dollar verdict in the wrongful death case of a man crushed by a crane in 2012.

Michael Singley, 47, was killed July 6, 2012, when the crane he was operating turned over. Singley worked for Moundville-based West Alabama Mechanical and was operating the crane at Southern Ionics in Holt.

His family filed a wrongful death lawsuit six months later, claiming that Southeastern Crane Inspections LLC had inspected the crane in February 2012, but failed to properly inform West Alabama Mechanical of serious problems, said Tuscaloosa attorney Matt Glover.

The crane turned over because a safety feature that stabilizes the crane failed, he said. The jury returned a verdict Tuesday awarding Singley’s family $5.5 million, which Glover said is one of the largest jury awards in a west Alabama court during the last decade.

“This jury really worked hard on the case,” said Glover of the Tuscaloosa firm Prince, Glover & Hayes. “They paid close attention to the evidence and came back with a verdict that sends a loud and clear message to those who want to do business in west Alabama. If you are going to work here, our citizens expect you to be honest and have a commitment to make safety the top priority on the job.”

The suit was initially filed against the crane inspection business, the company that sold the crane, the owners and safety inspector of West Alabama Mechanical. All but Southeastern Crane reached a $950,000 settlement before the trial, leaving Southeastern Crane as the lone a defendant. The judgment means Southeastern Crane will be responsible for paying $4.5 million.

Singley was born in Axis, in Mobile County, and was living in Linden when he died. He was survived by two daughters, his parents, siblings and other family members.
