$1.55M Settlement Reached for Mother and Daughter After Tractor-Trailer Rear Ends Car
After a mother and daughter are involved in a tractor-trailer accident, a $1,550,000 settlement is reached.
A mother and her daughter were stopped for traffic on Interstate 81 North in Roanoke County on February 7, 2021. They were rear-ended by the defendant, who was driving a tractor trailer. The plaintiff’s vehicle collided with the vehicle in front of them, killing a passenger and paralyzing the driver. Although the plaintiff’s injuries were not as severe, they did suffer traumatic brain injuries and orthopedic injuries.
As a result of the collision, three personal injury cases and one wrongful death action were filed. Damages to the occupants of the vehicle in front of the plaintiff’s vehicle exceeded the available insurance coverage and the company’s assets, preventing the plaintiffs from being reimbursed. The cases could not be resolved through collaborative medication. The plaintiffs settled directly with the company after the cases were scheduled for trial.
The settlement was $1,550,000.
