Client Rear-ended by Semi-Truck While Attempting to Turn Left, Suffers Whiplash, Close Head Injury, Concussion, Hip and Shoulder Pain, Recovers $205,000 in SettlementTruck Accident
In the summer of 2021, our client was driving on US-20 in Fulton County, Ohio. While stopped in the road waiting for oncoming traffic to clear so that they could turn left, our client was rear-ended by a semi-truck who did not maintain an appropriate distance and was distracted by an unknown source.
As can be imagined by being rear-ended by a semi, our client and their vehicle suffered serious injuries, requiring our client to be life-flighted to a nearby trauma center. There our client was diagnosed to have suffered several head injuries, chest wall pain, and various skeletal injuries.
Because of these injuries, our client was unable to work or carry on their day-to-day activities. Our attorneys and staff were very aware of the traumatic experience, limitation on life, and the accumulated debt from an injury of this kind and the inability to work. Our attorneys and staff aggressively pursued the semi-driver’s insurance carrier. In less than a year from the date of our client’s injuries, we reached a $205,000 settlement for our client.
