Kenneth pulled over on the shoulder of the highway to check on his trailer. While he was inspecting his trailer, his vehicle was sideswiped by an 18 wheeler. The impact of the crash tossed him into the air, injuring his neck, back, left knee, and left shoulder. The 18 wheeler driver heavily disputed the facts of the wreck. They claimed Kenneth parked in a dangerous position on a hill, that they were forced off the road by another 18 wheeler, and that Kenneth was not close enough to the impact to be injured.
We were able to recreate the scene of the wreck to show that there was no hill that would have blocked the truck driver's vision. We also obtained the body camera footage from the investigating officer showing that the truck driver never mentioned another vehicle when at the scene. Kenneth had medical bills near $37,000. After months of negotiations the case settled for $120,000.
Expected payout to client: $30,000.
