$575,000 Settlement: Semi-truck Driver Fails to Slow Down
A car stopped by slowing traffic due to spilled lumber on the highway was struck by a tired semi-truck driver who failed to see that traffic was slowing. Our client, a college student who was a passenger in the car, had part of his ear severed in the collision. The accident was recorded on videotape by a highway patrol car that had stopped to remove the debris. We obtained settlements totaling $575,000 from the two truck companies.
