Commercial Truck Accident Injury – $750,000

What began as just another day at work ultimately changed the life of our client, a tractor-trailer driver who wasn’t even moving at the time of the accident. Our client had pulled over on the side of the road for a break when the driver of a second tractor-trailer lost control of his vehicle and struck our client.

Truck drivers are subject to strict labor laws intended to prevent them from driving while overtired. The law required our client to take a break to sleep, so when he reached an area that designated as a rest stop for truck parking, he pulled over to the side of the road to join a line of other parked tractor-trailers. Our client was asleep in his bunk in the truck’s cab when a sudden impact from the rear of the truck woke him and threw him from his bunk.

The crash had split the trailer in two and pushed the truck into the tractor-trailer in front of it, but even worse was what the collision did to our client’s health. His neck hit the stick shift, and then the floor. He had multiple herniated discs at points in both the cervical and lumbar regions of his spine. He developed wrist injuries in both arms, including carpal tunnel syndrome in the left wrist. Our client was forced to undergo not one but two surgeries, and would likely continue to experience pain on an ongoing basis, possibly for the rest of his life. He also missed work and lost his job. His quality of life had been forever compromised. Even years later, he has difficulty lifting weights and riding a bike. He can no longer pick up his grandchildren like he once could.

Through our determination and diligence, our New Jersey truck accident attorneys were able to recover $750,000 on behalf of our client. Though nothing can give him back his health, the compensation will repay his family for the damages such as his lost income and medical expenses and make it easier for him to cope with and get treatment for his painful injuries.
