Case Conclusion Date: 01.06.2014
Practice Area: Trucking accident
Description: Client sustained shoulder injuries and concussion in a multi-claimant rear-end collision from a fully-loaded tractor-trailer. Depositions of safety director and operator revealed a significant history of regulatory compliance failures by both the company and its driver. There was also evidence that a shift of the driver's loaded cargo created instability in the tractor-trailer which contributed to the secondary impact of this wreck. Case was filed in federal court in the Northern District of Georgia. Settlement was reached with multiple insurance carriers during mediation at the conclusion of the discovery period.
