$10,000,000 Recovered for Local First Responder After Truck Collision
Case Type: Personal Injury - Serious Commercial Truck Accident
Our client, a local tow truck driver was working in an Emergency Response Zone on the side of a disabled tractor trailer when he was struck by another truck driven by an improperly trained driver.
The passing truck’s passenger side mirror struck our client and knocked him to the ground while he was providing assistance to the disabled vehicle. The impact caused serious injuries to our client, including a neck fracture with initial quadriplegia, traumatic brain injury with a subdural hemorrhage, multiple facial fractures and scarring, and psychological injuries including post-traumatic stress disorder and sleep disorders.
The passing driver’s recklessness will have a significant lifelong impact on our client, including total occupational disability causing loss of wages, required relocation to a modified home, as well as need for a modified handicap vehicle and other accommodations.
Following significant discovery, submission of multiple expert reports, multiple motions for summary judgment by the defense, and mediation, the case resolved in a settlement of $10,000,000.
