$1M Settlement in Trucking Accident Lawsuit

Comments Off

Michie Hamlett attorneys Greg Webb and Bryan Slaughter obtained a $1,000,000 confidential settlement on behalf of their client, who was hit head by a large truck on his way to work one morning. The truck crossed the center line and hit the plaintiff’s vehicle, pushing plaintiff off of the road with the truck resting partially on the plaintiff’s vehicle when the vehicles came to rest. Plaintiff had to be cut from the vehicle and evacuated by helicopter for emergency medical care. Plaintiff had life-threatening injuries and remained in the hospital for 3 months.

The defendants offered up their $1,000,000 in policy limits four months before trial. Because the defendants had no appreciable assets to satisfy a judgement exceeding $1,000,000, the Plaintiff elected to accept the offer of policy limits.
