Stone v. Adams
Serious Personal Injury When SUV Slams Into Apartment
Imagine sitting in your apartment watching your favorite afternoon television show when BOOM! An SUV comes plowing through the wall and buries you in the rubble underneath it. Unable to move anything but your wrists and fingers, you try to push the sheet rock and brick away from your face in order to breathe. You hear the sirens and first responders moving around the apartment.
You try to scream, but no one can hear you. You know you’re going to die so you say your goodbyes and ask forgiveness for your sins. Then, 45 minutes later, rescuers finally hear your calls for help and pull you from the rubble.

The story you just read isn’t a movie or a piece of fiction. It’s what actually happened to Chynna Stone, an SMU student as she sat in her Dallas apartment one day in 2008.
The driver of the GMC Yukon that nearly killed Chynna had a blood alcohol content (BAC) twice the legal limit. The Aldous Law Firm’s investigation showed that the driver had a history of drug and alcohol abuse and a record of previous arrests.
Incredibly, the investigation also uncovered the fact that the apartment where it happened had been the scene of a very similar accident in 2006, but no one bothered telling Chynna that before she moved in.
Chynna remained in the hospital for several weeks recovering from life-threatening injuries. After several months of physical therapy, she finally returned home, but still suffers from post-traumatic headaches and nightmares.
The case later settled on terms favorable to Chynna and her family. Our team at Aldous \ Walker was committed to helping Chynna recover the compensation she deserved. We were dedicated to her interests—approaching her case as we approach each case we accept: With passion, determination, and commitment.
