$9 Million Settlement Against Trucking Company

Truck Accident

Attorneys Kenneth Rothweiler, Fred Eisenberg and Todd Schoenhaus settled a truck accident case for $9 million after two years of litigation and one mediation. The settlement was reached as a trial was set to begin. In this case, our client was a single mother whose car was struck in a head-on collision with a tractor trailer when the truck crossed the center line. The truck driver had a history of medical issues and safety violations, was overly fatigued, and should not have been permitted by his employer to operate a commercial vehicle. Our client suffered a traumatic brain injury, which the trucking company vigorously disputed, and broke multiple bones. She is permanently unable to work or care for herself. The $9 million settlement will help provide the care that she will need for the rest of her life.
