$250,000 settlement after being rear-ended by a tractor trailer
Couple recovers $250k for knee injuries caused by commercial truck collision
After filing a lawsuit and engaging in intense litigation with the trucking company and its insurer, Steve Caya was able to obtain a $250,00 settlement for a couple who were rear ended by a semi truck resulting in knee injuries.
After an injury-causing accident, the at-fault party’s insurance company isn’t likely to offer you the amount your claim is really worth. In fact they’re likely to deliberately offer less than you need to make a full recovery, hoping the stress and financial pressures you’re facing will lead you to settle quickly, just to get something.
How to make them pay what you’re owed
You only have one chance to recover fair compensation for injuries suffered in an accident. Once you sign anything (even a check!) you waive the right to pursue additional money through a lawsuit.
What insurers fear more than anything is a proven personal injury attorney ready to fight and win at trial. Typically in these situations they’ll make a higher settlement offer, rather than risk a virtually unlimited jury award.

If you weren't completely at fault for the crash, you're eligible to receive compensation for your injuries in a settlement or jury award should it come to it.
