$3.2 Million Settlement in Truck Accident Case
$3,200,000 PRE-LAWSUIT SETTLEMENT – MINOR CHILD – MOTOR VEHICLE / COMMERCIAL TRUCKING ACCIDENT – DISTRACTED DRIVER
This client was a rear-seat passenger in a motor vehicle that was rear ended by a commercial truck. The client’s vehicle impacted head-on into a tree. Black box data from the two vehicles that were analyzed by an engineer showed that the truck operator was distracted before impact. The defense argued that the child was unbelted, which led to his injuries.
The client suffered a significant head and face trauma in the crash. The child was diagnosed with head and mild brain injury, fractured pelvis, headache, knee pain and spine pain. The head trauma led to some initial hearing loss and continuing tinnitus. The accident caused emotional injury such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and some memory loss.
The long-term effects of this crash and its damages are lasting. Emerson Straw PL sought to advocate for substantial long-term compensation for these catastrophic injuries. Victims of trucking crashes should contact Emerson Straw PL immediately.
