A truck driver at a truck stop parking lot was hit by an 18-wheeler, which caused injuries so severe that the victim lost one of his legs. The truck driver victim was on-the-job at the time of the accident. North Carolina truck accident attorneys at Brent Adams & Associates acquired video footage from the trucking company that provided visual confirmation that the driver of the 18-wheeler was talking on his phone just prior to and at the time of the collision.
Using the video evidence, our attorneys negotiated a settlement within one year from the date of the accident, which is much faster than many other cases of this nature. Not only did we acquire an expedient settlement, our legal team ensured the victim did not compromise on the compensation he was entitled to. Our attorneys fought for and won a $3,000,000 settlement for the victim, in addition to winning his full workers’ compensation benefits. The workers’ compensation carrier will continue to provide regular healthcare, including maintenance, repair, and replacement of prosthesis throughout the remainder of the man’s life.
