Commercial Vehicle Wreck-18 Wheeler-Failure to Share Half of the Roadway-Negligence-Personal Injury-Back Surgery
We successfully negotiated a mid-six figure settlement with a trucking company and its driver for our client wherein there was disputed liability because the crash occurred on bridge of a ranch road in rural South Texas. The testimony established that the custom for that bridge crossing was to allow the traffic to alternate and take turns crossing the bridge. The tractor trailer did not alternate but rather followed another tractor trailer across the bridge and violently crashed head-on with a pick-up truck being operated by our client. Our client was life-flighted to a hospital in San Antonio where he underwent surgery to his knee. Subsequently, as a result of injuries to his lower back, he had a “360 fusion” performed on his lower back.
