$1.3 Million Settlement Involving Tractor-Trailer Collision
Martin & Jones has confidentially settled a $1.3 million claim against the at-fault driver and his employer for $1.3 million for man who suffered a traumatic brain injury and intestinal injuries after his vehicle was broadsided by a tractor-trailer driver who had run a red light.
The crash happened when his client was driving to his worksite one day in 2019. The client stopped at a red light and then proceeded through the intersection when the light turned green. As he did so, the driver of the tractor-trailer ran the red light and slammed into the driver’s side of the utility work van, sending it careening over 70 feet.
Our client was taken to the hospital, where he was diagnosed with a closed-head injury (a type of traumatic brain injury) and an injury in which his intestines were knocked into his chest cavity.
The tractor-trailer driver’s records helped to show that fatigue was a significant factor in causing the crash.Share This
