$1.03M Settlement: Tractor-Trailer Head-On Collision
Attorneys: Donald Dunn and Gene Riddle
70 year old male hit head on by a tractor trailer. He suffered severe abdominal injuries resulting it colonoscopic decompression requiring 3 weeks in the hospital followed by 2 weeks in rehabilitation. Several months later a reversal surgery was performed. He was a Medicare recipient so his medical bills totaled a little over $150,000 but his injuries were severe. The insurance carrier for the truck offered less than $300,000 so suit was filed. After lengthy discovery in the litigation process, which took over 2 years, the case was settled for $1,030,000, which exhausted all insurance policies. Patience and persistence were vital to getting justice for this client.
