$1.9 Million Settlement for Woman Injured in Collision with Broken Down Tractor-Trailer

Martin & Jones obtained a $1.9 million settlement for a woman who was injured after she slammed into a tractor-trailer that had broken down in the middle of the road.

Our client was driving on a rural North Carolina highway in early 2019. The driver of a large commercial tractor trailer attempted to make a left-hand turn, but the truck broke down, blocking the lane. The client was traveling in the opposite direction and with no time to react she crashed into the side of the tractor-trailer.

The client was in the hospital for five days and suffered a serious knee injury that required major surgery.

We sought damages for negligence against the at-fault driver for failing to conduct proper maintenance and pre-trip inspections on the tractor-trailer and for failing to put out warning devices such as reflective triangles. We also contended that his employer failed to train the driver on preventive maintenance checks and emergency response procedures.
