Our firm is passionate about pursuing justice on behalf of the injured.
Recently, we were able to obtain a large settlement for our client who had been injured in a commercial truck accident. Our attorney used diligent preparation and effective legal strategies to seek the highest amount of compensation available. We work tirelessly in each case, and are proud to share stories of success.
About the Situation
Our client was driving down the I-85 when he was struck by a commercial tractor trailer that merged into his lane. He spun off the road and slammed into the barrier, coming to rest on the shoulder of the Interstate. Our client suffered significant injuries to his back and neck, and required an extensive workup and admission at the hospital. Following his discharge, he faced ongoing treatment for nerve damage, including neurosurgery and pain management.
Surgery was also recommended due to the severity of his injuries.
How Our Firm Helped
We conducted a thorough investigation into the accident, and found that the trucking company was a small, fly-by-night operation that only employed 2 trucks. A short time after the accident, the company ceased operations. It owed extensive back taxes to the IRS. Furthermore, the trucking company had no safety director and no training programs for its drivers. It did not even have safety monitoring for its vehicles. The driver who caused our client’s accident had a suspended Commercial Driver’s License due to excessive speeding tickets, and the company’s owner had numerous criminal charges on his record. We gathered evidence and fought diligently for our client’s right to a settlement. With tenacious representation and diligent legal strategies, we were able to obtain a settlement of $300,000. The case was settled in mediation.
