How We Have Helped: Truck Accident Case Results
Summary: Jon Doe sued defendants after Truck Driver crashed his 18-wheeler into the back of Jon's pick-up truck. The force of the impact pushed Jon's truck into two other vehicles. Our investigation revealed that Trucking Company did nothing to ensure that Truck Driver had the experience and training needed to safely operate a tractor trailer. In addition, Trucking Company encouraged Truck Driver to violate regulations covering maximum driving times, frequently assigning him to 24 hour runs. After months of conservative treatment failed, Jon's doctor diagnosed a pars defect in his lumbar spine, anterolisthesis of L5 on S1, and grade II spondylolisthesis. Jon had to undergo a lumbar fusion as a result.
Summary: A Trucking Company driver ran a red light and struck Lisa Doe at 35 miles per hour. As a result of the collision, Lisa Doe suffered a herniated disc in her lumbar spine, with low back pain, which radiated down her right leg.
