18-Wheeler Accident

DISCLAIMER: The results are specific to the facts and legal circumstances of each of the clients’ cases and should not be used to form an expectation that the same results could be obtained for other clients in similar matters without reference to the specific factual and legal circumstances of each client’s case.

Maria and her boyfriend George were in their car when they were hit by an 18-wheeler. Although the big rig was not going very fast, the car was crushed, and both Maria and George were badly injured. Maria and George both went to the emergency room, and the next day they had a family member call Dan Packard, who immediately got to work.

Dan sent a team out to take photos of the accident scene, and he had an expert examine all the vehicles—especially the big rig. He followed up with Maria and George to make sure that they were getting all the necessary medical treatment, and he talked to witnesses who were on the scene before and after the accident. He was with Maria and George every step of the way and took a personal interest in the case and in them.

At first, the trucking company tried to argue that the accident was Maria’s fault, but Mr. Packard sent a detailed settlement package that included the expert reports, photos, doctor reports, witness statements, and other evidence that all pointed to the trucker’s fault. Additionally, Mr. Packard uncovered evidence that the trucker was driving a defective vehicle that had not been serviced correctly. In the end, the trucking company’s insurance paid a confidential, seven-figure settlement that drastically improved the financial future for both Maria and George.
