$1.3 Million

Eighteen-Wheeler Accident Verdict

Our client, who was driving, signaled and began to pass an 18-wheeler when the truck suddenly executed a left turn in front of our client’s vehicle. In response, our client locked her brakes, skidded into the right lane of travel and struck the rear driver’s side of the 18-wheeler’s trailer.

As a result of the wreck, our client sustained a shattered left leg, which resulted in an open fracture and a loss of full two inches of leg length. She also suffered a fractured elbow and T-12 vertebra. Our client underwent four surgeries to repair her fractured leg and restore her ability to walk. Her medical expenses totaled $144,000.

Because of her injuries and the condition of the vehicle, our client was unable to get out of it alone. Her 12-year-old grandson, who was a passenger in the vehicle, pulled her across the center console and out to safety. He sustained a sprained ankle, a sprained knee and bruising.

We are proud that our firm secured a jury award for damages in excess of $1.3 million.
