Tractor Truck Wreck – $1.6 Million - Maury County
This case involved a commercial truck that overturned on the side of the interstate at night. In violation of applicable safety rules, the driver failed to place any type of cones or indicators out to warn other drivers of the wreck. As a result, our client, who was also traveling the interstate, was unable to see the overturned truck as he approached and collided with the trailer. Our client suffered catastrophic injuries from the wreck, including paralysis. The insurance companies for the defendants denied fault throughout the case. The case went to trial before a Maury County jury. While the jury was in deliberations, the parties agreed to settle the case with the remaining Defendant. Total recovery in the case exceeded $1,600,000.
