$600,000 for Client Injured by Falling Cargo
BW settled a personal injury lawsuit for an injured truck driver for $600,000.00. Our client was an over-the-road truck driver who was seriously injured when a load of electronic equipment fell out of his trailer and landed on him. Our client had injuries to his neck, low back and knee. We sued the company that packaged and loaded the equipment into the trailer. The defendant company denied it was responsible and blamed our truck driver client for not securing the load and not being careful when he opened the trailer door. We hired five experts to help prove our case. After taking numerous depositions and investing tens of thousands of dollars into the case for our client, we were able to settle the case for $600,000. We are very happy to have helped another injured truck driver recover the compensation he was owed.
