$305,000 Truck Accident & Workers’ Compensation Settlement
Attorney: Donald Dunn
Our client was a passenger in a small commercial truck rear-ended by an 18-wheeler on I-85 near Concord. He suffered a low back injury which led to a disc herniation. Surgical repair was required. The injured worker was not able to return to work as a roofer for his employer after the wreck.
Unfortunately, prior to the wreck, our client ran a yard mowing business on the side. For several years prior to the wreck he had filed tax returns showing consistent large losses with no taxable income.
Our client continued the mowing business while collecting temporary total disability benefits from workers’ compensation which is not allowed. We filed suit on his third-party claim against the trucker and pursued his workers’ compensation case simultaneously.
Led by NC personal injury and workers’ comp attorney Donald Dunn, we settled the workers’ comp case for $80,000 and later settled the third party case for $225,000. Total compensation recovered for the client was $305,000.
