$300,000 Judgment For Injured Truck Driver

We recently obtained a judgment on behalf the driver of a tractor-trailer who was rear-ended by a loaded dump truck traveling at high speed, while our client was stopped at a red light on U.S. Highway 231 in Pike County, Alabama. The impact resulting from the dump truck driver’s inattention was substantial. The 18 wheeler driven by our client, which was also loaded, was pushed into the vehicle in front of him, causing a second collision. The dump truck caught fire after the collision and was a total loss. Our client suffered from neck pain and headaches following the wreck and required neck surgery.
