Semi-truck side-swipes client’s truck, pushing him into guardrail and dragging his vehicle (Stephen Haynes)

Our client’s truck was side-swiped with such force by a semi-truck that the accident totaled our client’s vehicle and fractured three of his vertebrae and caused facial bruising. He was admitted to a trauma hospital’s ICU, after being transported there from a local hospital not equipped to handle his injuries. He is still treating with an orthopaedic specialist to rule out the need for surgery, and our client was not allowed to bend his back or lift heavy objects, causing him to miss work for eight weeks and making it difficult for him to deal with the pain of the fractures.
