$1,620,000 verdict for serious injuries in a semi-truck accident
Steve Caya obtained a verdict of $1,620,000 for a 48-year-old woman who suffered serious injuries in a semi-truck accident.
Steve's client was injured when a truck driver attempted to back his semi-tractor trailer out of a driveway and onto a public highway without the use of a spotter or assistance in backing. The trucking company’s insurer denied the truck driver was at fault and never made a settlement offer before trial. The trucking company’s lawyer argued throughout that Steve Caya’s client was responsible for the crash due to her speed and failure to keep a proper lookout.
Steve hired a renowned trucking expert to discuss before the jury all of the trucking safety rules violated by the truck driver and to educate the jury on the fact the trucking company failed to properly train its driver. Steve also hired an accident reconstructionist to combat the defenses raised by the trucking company and its insurer regarding his client’s speed and alleged lack of attentiveness. At the conclusion of the trial, the jury returned an enormous verdict in favor of Steve’s client. A verdict that will allow his client a secure future despite her life-changing injuries.
