$4.25 Million Settlement

Our client, a 29-year-old single woman and New York state resident, was traveling at night, in the rain, on an unlit highway in Mississippi. Ahead of her was a stopped tractor-trailer, perpendicular to her car. The tractor-trailer was crossing all lanes of traffic and waiting to make a left turn. Because the tractor-trailer had no reflectors on its side, our client was unable to see the vehicle until she was too close, causing her car to strike the side of the truck. As a result, she suffered a brain injury and partial left-sided paralysis. Our firm was retained by local counsel in Mississippi to handle the case.
