Here is one story of how we helped a truck driver obtain a settlement after
Horris Wilson is an over-the-road tractor-trailer driver. One day, he was
driving a “bobtail” run (driving only the tractor without
the trailer) when an auto carrier tractor-trailer hit him from behind.
After the accident, the driver who rear-ended Wilson admitted to police
that he was traveling nearly 45 miles per hour. Wilson’s truck sustained
extensive damage, and he was also injured as a result of the crash.
Mr. Wilson’s case presented certain difficulties because of his inconsistent
medical treatment. He received some treatment from the local hospital
in Lancaster County, PA after the accident. However, he didn’t receive
more treatment until arriving back home in Michigan several days later.
An independent medical examiner diagnosed post-concussive syndrome, cervical
and lumbosacral strain and sprain, and a torn rotator cuff.
An Effective Settlement
Because of his injuries, Mr. Wilson was significantly disabled from continuing
as a tractor-trailer driver or holding other gainful employment. Even
though he didn’t have fractures or disc injuries confirmed by studies
like MRIs and CT scans, as is common in truck accident cases, he was still
able to obtain $450,000 in settlement. Our attorneys fought for his rights
to achieve the compensation he deserved for his injuries.
