Brain injuries sustained in auto accidents can be very serious and result in long-term complications and medical treatment; unfortunately, they can also be difficult to identify and diagnose early on, and some do not produce symptoms for hours or even days after the accident. If you or a loved one has been in an accident involving a large commercial truck, we at Agruss Law Firm are here for you every step of the way to ensure that your rights are protected and you are fully compensated for your injuries and losses, and this includes working with the insurance company on your behalf to ensure a favorable settlement.
Here are some truck accident cases from around the U.S. for brain injuries and their settlements:
- 2013, Illinois – A young woman at a red light was rear-ended by a large commercial truck, which sent her careening into the intersection; she suffered a serious neck strain as well as a concussion. The case went to trial and a jury awarded her about $80,000 in compensation.
- 2008, Texas – A large tanker truck was attempting to turn down a side-street and obstructed the main roadway; due to darkness and the bright lights from the truck, the plaintiff could not see that the truck was in his way and crashed into it, resulting in a concussion and multiple lacerations and broken bones; he sued both the driver and trucking company for negligence. Though the case was set for trial, the defendants decided to settle – possibly out of fear of paying out a larger amount from a jury-verdict – and the plaintiff received $1.6 million.
- 2008, California – A man in a pickup truck drove through an intersection on a green light and, perpendicular, a large semi-truck drove through the red light and struck the side of his truck. The victim’s vehicle careened several hundred feet and he suffered a brain injury as well as internal bleeding. The case went to trial and the plaintiff was awarded about $1.16 million in compensation.
