18 Wheeler Wreck Case in Montgomery County Settles for $2 million

by: Prince, Glover & Hayes Monday, February 3rd, 2014

Partner Josh Hayes has reached a $2 million settlement on behalf of our client who was seriously injured when the commercial vehicle he was driving was rear-ended by a tractor-trailer in downtown Montgomery.  This case, filed in Montgomery County, was heavily litigated over the course of the past year.  Our firm was associated in the case by state senator and Grove Hill attorney Marc Keahey who also took an active role in the litigation.

Extensive “discovery,” or research, on the adverse driver was performed which proved that the driver should have never been placed behind the wheel on the day of the wreck.  We also proved that the truck driver was over his allowable number of hours at the time of the wreck.  The truck driver also had 7 moving violations and 6 collisions within the 8 years before this wreck.  It was evident from the beginning of the case that the trucking company was careless in its efforts to enforce safe driving.  As a direct result of this collision, our client required a neck surgery and a back surgery.  His medical expenses exceeded $160,000 and unfortunately, he did not have medical insurance.  The client was deemed 100% disabled by his treating physician.
