Trucking Case Study

Our client was involved in a head on collision with a commercial vehicle. At first, he thought he had escaped the wreck with minor soreness, but his back problems persisted, and he eventually underwent chiropractic therapy, injection therapy, and a discectomy to alleviate the ongoing pain in his lower back. The insurance company offered a minimal amount to resolve the case and that is when he first contacted our office. We filed a lawsuit on his behalf and in the litigation process we uncovered evidence that the trucking company violated numerous federal safety regulations and internal policies and procedures that led it to put an unsafe driver on the road. After litigation and before trial we resolved the matter for $750,000.
