Improper Lane Change Crash
We successfully negotiated a confidential high six figure settlement for our client with a Minnesota company where its commercial motor vehicle driver negligently attempted to make a lane change and violently slammed into our client who was traveling in the lane next to him. The Defendant driver vehemently denied fault for the crash but his testimony was not credible given the investigating trooper’s conclusions in the crash report. Additionally, based on the damage to the box truck and our client’s vehicle, the crash could not have occurred as the Defendant driver swore it occurred. Our client sustained injuries to his neck and lower back and was required to undergo two (2) surgeries, one (1) on his neck and one (1) on his lower back.
