Case Name: Jon Doe v. Truck Driver; Trucking Company
Recovery Range: $1,000,000 - $2,000,000

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.
