A truck driver turned in front of 20-year-old student, Crystal Wood. Although the trucking company sought to blame Crystal, Martin & Jones hired an accident reconstruction expert to recreate the wreck. At mediation, after hearing from Martin & Jones’ accident reconstruction expert, the trucking company’s insurance company agree to pay its policy limits of $1,000,000 to settle the wrongful death claim. Crystal’s parents set up a scholarship at UNC-Greensboro in her memory.
