$287,000 recovery after suit filed against truck company for causing crash and motorists' shoulder injury
Suit was filed after a trucking company refused to take responsibility when its driver failed to yield as he turned left and struck a motorist in a 4 way intersection. The initial police report and truck company initially faulted the motorist. However an accident reconstruction expert was retained and suit was filed against the truck company and its driver for causing the crash that resulted in the motorists' injured and surgically repaired shoulder. Three weeks before trial, the truck company agreed to pay for the motorists' medical bills, pain and suffering and lost wages.
