$3.75 Million Settlement
On September 15, 2015, the firm's 51 year old client was driving to work when his vehicle was struck head on by a pick-up truck that had been attempting to make a left hand turn, but was instead propelled into our clients lane after being rear-ended by a tractor trailer. Our client suffered severe injuries including bleeding on the brain, which required three surgeries. He also suffered severe fractures of his left hip and pelvis, requiring two major surgeries, including a hip replacement. He was hospitalized or in in-patient rehabilitation for most of the year following the accident. Our client will never return to work and experienced a loss of earning capacity of almost $200,000. He will also require on-going medical treatment.
In this case, Mark demanded that the vehicle owners preserve the vehicles. He then used the vehicles' black box data to disprove the truck driver's allegation that the pick-up truck suddenly stopped while in the process of making the left-hand turn.
