Tractor-Trailer Accident Case Settles for $1.02 Million and More

DBJ negotiated a $1,002,500 settlement on behalf of the family of a man who was killed in an accident with a tractor-trailer. A man driving a four-door sedan was sideswiped by a tractor-trailer owned by ABC Trucking Company, causing it to cross the median and roll over twice. The man died from head injuries suffered in the accident. The case with ABC Trucking was settled before trial.

A lawsuit against the automobile manufacturer proceeded to trial. Plaintiffs argued that the roof of the man’s car featured a defective design, which caused the roof over the driver’s side to collapse. On the fourth day of trial, a confidential settlement was reached.

Scott S. Bethune and Randall W. Brown of DBJ represented the plaintiffs.
