$12 Million Verdict Is Awarded to Teacher and Mother That Was Catastrophically Injured While Jogging

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – On Friday, July 28, 2023, Brandon Bishop and Andrew Moak of Alexander
Shunnarah Trial Attorneys, P.C., secured a $12 million verdict by the Blount County Circuit Court for
Clo Mallory, a teacher and mother from Blount County, Alabama. Mallory was tragically struck by a
motor vehicle while jogging in her neighborhood, resulting in 20 broken bones and permanent brain
damage. Attorneys Brandon Bishop and Andrew Moak displayed exemplary advocacy in securing justice
for their client, Clo, a beloved teacher, devoted mother, and lifelong marathon runner.

Clo’s life was a testament to her passion for running, having completed numerous 5K’s, 10K’s, half and
full marathons, amassing an incredible 30,000 miles over the years. Tragically, her world was shattered
when she was struck from the front right side by a motor vehicle. Among her injuries were nine right rib
fractures (ribs 2 through 10), six right thoracic spinal fractures (T2, T3, T4, T5, T6 & T8), a right sacral
ala fracture, a right obturator ring fracture, and a right superior/inferior pubic ramus fracture. Additionally,
she suffered from a right retroperitoneal hemorrhage. These debilitating injuries have left Clo with limited
mobility, unable to communicate and tragically incapable of pursuing her passion for running or
continuing her teaching career.

The case went to trial on July 28, 2023, where the insurance company attempted to frame Clo as being at
fault for the accident, despite all medical and scientific evidence supporting that she was struck from the
front right side. However, in the face of such adversity, attorneys Brandon Bishop and Andrew Moak
served as Clo’s unwavering advocates, presenting all evidence and leaving no room for doubt that she was the innocent victim of the horrific accident. Their unwavering commitment to securing justice empowered the jury to recognize the gravity of the situation and, most importantly, to grant Clo agency in the final verdict.

“We are grateful to the jury for allowing us to tell Ms. Mallory’s story and grateful that they were willing
to extend a hand to help someone in such need who served her community for so long,” said Andrew

The dedicated attorneys at Alexander Shunnarah Trial Attorneys continue to demonstrate an unwavering
commitment to advocate for their clients, ensuring they receive the justice they rightfully deserve. This
verdict serves as yet another testament to the firm’s extensive experience and expertise in personal injury
law, as well as their willingness to passionately serve their clients who suffer from personal injuries.
