Truck Crash Settlements
Since the late 1980s, the firm has handled over 200 truck crash cases across the nation and helped families deal with the aftermath of these tragedies.
Our truck crash settlements and verdicts include:
- $8.5 million wrongful death verdict against food industry company, Tyson Foods
- $6.9 million settlement during trial against a major truck company
- $6 million settlement for a wrongful death case in a truck crash
- 62 truck accident cases settled for $1 million or more
A successful truck accident trial was conducted in Ohio, where our firm successfully brought to trial a commercial truck accident case against Tyson Foods, where our clients were awarded $7,028,687 for the loss of their son, a single young adult.
Tyson Foods disagreed with the verdict and asked the court for a new trial or reduction of the verdict since it was one of the largest verdicts for the death of an unmarried person in Ohio’s history. The judge not only denied Tyson’s request for a new trial or reduction, but based on the evidence and testimony presented by our firm at trial, the judge granted prejudgment interest, increasing the total amount awarded to about $8.5 million.
Another one of our successful truck accident trials took place in Madison, Wisconsin. After a semi-truck drove over a stopped car, killing two of its occupants and injuring the third, one of our attorney’s took the case all the way to trial. The trucking company admitted fault before trial, but insisted that the damages were no more than $2.1 million. Our firm continued in pursuit of justice for the three victims over a four day trial until the case finally settled for $6.9 million. The settlement came just before the jury was about to announce their verdict, which according to later interviews, would have been $6.5 million.
