Tractor Trailer Accident | Personal Injury Lawyer Wins
HOW TO FIND A “WINNING” TRACTOR TRAILER PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER:
A “win” for a tractor trailer collision settlement is based on five factors: (1) the trucking settlement beats the last insurance settlement offer; (2) the settlement is greater than typical settlements for tractor trailer accidents; (3) the tractor trailer settlement fairly compensates the injured client for the harm done; (4) achievement of a great settlement despite difficult facts; and (5) most importantly, the settlement for a tractor trailer collision should never be based on a formula (which some people believe to be a multiple of 3 times medical bills).

A RECENT CASE ILLUSTRATING A “WIN”
Tractor Trailer Accident / Truck Accident
My client was a former body builder driving one early morning to LA Fitness in College Park, Georgia. While driving in the right lane, she was sideswiped by a UPS tractor trailer. The impact caused her to spin out of control. She injured her shoulder and ultimately required arthroscopic surgery. She incurred approximately $23,000.00 in medical bills. She had three prior auto accidents with injuries and one subsequent bus accident resulting in severe back injuries. Her history of other accidents before and after her tractor trailer collision were considered “bad facts” detrimental to her case. Defendant’s offer of settlement was $75,000.00. Based on jury verdict research, comparable settlements for this case were $75,000.00. With the client’s approval, I settled the case in mediation for $175,000.00. The settlement increased money to the client from the Defendant’s last offer in the amount of $100,000.00. The mediator noted that it was the largest settlement he had seen for a case of this type. This was a “win” for my client. More importantly, she was given the right to choose and was not forced to accept whatever figure the insurance company determined they would pay.
