Professional truck drivers have a special responsibility to other drivers. They operate large and heavy vehicles that, when involved in accidents, are more likely to cause injuries than the average car. That’s why truck drivers receive special training. The firm represented a young trauma nurse whose spine was injured when a tractor trailer driving next to her drove into her lane, sending her car spinning down the highway and impacting the truck multiple times. The truck driver blamed the accident on our client, but the firm proved that the truck driver’s story was impossible based on a detailed analysis of the physical evidence. The case settled for $750,000 prior to trial.
