Zehl & Associates proudly announces the recovery of a $3.4 million settlement on behalf of our client who suffered serious neck and back injuries as a result of a commercial truck driver speeding in wet, dangerous conditions.
During our investigation into the cause of the collision, our experts determined that the fully-loaded 18-wheeler was traveling at least 10 miles per hour over the speed limit during a torrential downpour leaving him unable to stop his vehicle in time to avoid hitting our client from behind.
The force of impact herniated two discs in our client’s cervical spine, ultimately requiring him to undergo a fusion surgery.
Fortunately, the procedure was a complete success.
After presenting our findings of fault to the Defendant truck company’s attorneys, we were able to negotiate a very favorable settlement for our client that will keep him from having to return to work as a physical laborer.
