TRUCK ACCIDENT ENDS 30-YEAR CAREER
$1.6 million jury verdict
As commonplace as automobile accidents may be, they never fail to make us shudder. The line between a minor fender-bender and catastrophe is so easily crossed. Walter* fell on the tragic side of that line when a delivery truck rear-ended his SUV on the highway. He lost consciousness and suffered traumatic brain injuries.
His injuries resulted in permanent physical pain, emotional instability, and cognitive deficiencies. Walter had invested over 30 years in his career, but was such a changed man he was no longer an effective employee.
We stood by Walter every step of the way to counter the defendants’ attempts to shirk responsibility. Ultimately, a jury found driver and his company liable and they were ordered to pay Walter damages of $1.6 million.
