Top Settlements and Verdicts
Our client was traveling in the far-right lane on the interstate when our client noticed that the defendant, operating an 18-wheeler behind her, was not controlling its speed. The defendant attempted to merge into the service lane and rear-ended our client.
A truck driver made an unsafe lane change and took out the front axle of the car in front of our client's vehicle, causing that vehicle to stop suddenly and for our clients to hit the vehicle in front of them from behind. Further investigation revealed the driver was poorly trained, not adequately vetted, and put on the road by a trucking company with a bad history that failed to supervise their drivers.
Our client was traveling on the interstate when a concrete truck, driving erratically, failed to stop and rear-ended our client, pushing her vehicle into the car in front of her. Following the wreck, our client had neck and back MRIs, and we were able to compare them with neck and back MRIs taken three years earlier. The imaging showed a significant difference in those same areas. Our client suffered losses in commissions and wages from the injuries she suffered. Criminal records were found on the driver, and the company was found to have 100% out of service rates, which contributed to achieving a larger settlement.
A pop-up barrier gate was erroneously deployed by electrical contractors, impacting the front of our client's car as she entered the parking lot of her workplace. The company and the electrician they fired blamed each other. Our client suffered a neck injury and a concussion.
