$1,000,000 Settlement – Motor Vehicle Collision Involving A Tractor Trailer
Shiver Hamilton Campbell’s client was on a work errand in Roswell, Georgia when a loaded tractor-trailer rear-ended his vehicle at a traffic light. When Shiver Hamilton Campbell got involved in the case, the trucking company and insurance company were denying responsibility, claiming our client had pulled abruptly in front of the truck while approaching the red light. By studying the physical evidence at the intersection, using accident reconstruction calculations, and finding witnesses to the crash, we were able to demonstrate significant problems with the trucking company’s version of facts. Our client had to undergo a lumbar spine surgery and missed extensive amounts of work as an electrician. After initially making a zero offer, the insurance company ultimately agreed to pay full policy limits rather than face the prospect of a jury trial.
