PERSONAL INJURY STORIES
Trucking Accident Injury
An Irish couple visiting the United States for the first time was involved in a tragic auto accident. While sightseeing, their vehicle was struck by a flatbed truck going at a high rate of speed and attempting to make an illegal pass. The husband was tragically killed and the wife suffered serious injuries that kept her in the hospital for an extended period of time, where she had to endure not only her injuries, but her grief as well. The couple had several children back in Ireland and of course the family was devastated. A partial confidential settlement was reached with one insurance company and the case then went to trial. The jury returned a multi-million-dollar verdict on behalf of the family.
Tractor-Trailer Catastrophic Injury
A businessman was headed to the airport to catch an early morning flight. While driving on a dark, foggy highway, he was surprised by a tractor-trailer traveling at a very low rate of speed with inadequate and improper lighting and reflectors. Unfortunately, he couldn’t stop in time and the car crashed into the tractor-trailer, burst into flames, and caused catastrophic injuries to the driver. Initially, the trucking company claimed there was minimal insurance coverage for the crash. However, through discovery and litigation our firm determined there were millions of dollars available in coverage for this tragic trucking accident. Lawyers from our firm negotiated a confidential settlement.
Motorcycle Car Accident Injury
A young woman was a passenger in a car returning home from dinner on a Saturday night. While passing through an intersection, a motorcycle traveling at a high rate of speed ran a red light and crashed into the passenger side of the car. The driver of the motorcycle was thrown from the bike and instantly killed. The woman’s car burst into flames and she suffered significant burns over her entire body. She spent months in the burn unit at Jackson Memorial Hospital. Our firm fought vigorously to uncover all potential insurance coverage and reached a confidential multimillion-dollar settlement on her behalf.
