$1,800,000 Workers’ Compensation & Truck Accident Settlement
Attorney: Gene Riddle
Our valued client was driving a truck for his employer when a dump truck crossed the center line and hit him head-on. He suffered multiple injuries including the eventual loss of his left leg below the knee. He was successfully fitted with an orthopedic foot and managed very well. Riddle and Brantley personal injury and workers’ comp lawyer Gene Riddle worked out settlements with both the workers’ compensation insurance carrier and the carrier for the defendant third party dump truck.
The workers’ compensation carrier paid for all medical bills which totaled approximately $350,000 and paid indemnity to him until his case was settled. The workers’ compensation carrier then paid an additional $55,000 to our client and waived its lien against the third-party claim in its entirety. The third party paid an advance of $10,000 within a few weeks of the accident, as a result of the efforts of our attorneys. The case was ultimately settled with the dump truck for $1,400,000 in addition to all funds paid by the workers’ compensation carrier.
This was a tragic case involving a life-changing injury, which can never be fully compensated.
We were proud to help our client get justice and significant compensation in this case.
