Wrongful Death – Tractor-Trailer Accident

Type of Action: Wrongful Death
Location: Confidential
Verdict or Settlement: Settlement

Amount: $3,750,000

The decedent was a 60-year-old man who was killed instantly in a tractor-trailer collision. He was rear-ended by a tractor-trailer, then pushed into the rear of another tractor-trailer, causing his vehicle to combust.

Information from the engine control module revealed that the defendant was traveling 65 miles per hour at impact, and made no attempt to brake for slowing traffic. The decedent is survived by his wife of nine years and a 45-year-old son from a previous marriage. There were no medical bills, and he intended to retire the year after the collision, so there was no claim for loss of future earnings.

The case was referred to Allen & Allen by another law firm seeking more skill and experience in handling this complex commercial motor vehicle case. It was resolved at mediation after the trucking company representatives watched an impact video that fully demonstrated the sorrow and grief suffered by the beneficiaries.
