$10 Million Settlement Reached in 18-Wheeler Collision
A $10 million settlement was reached in a trucking accident involving a car and an 18-wheeler truck.
Paul “Chip” Ferguson has settled a trucking accident for $10,000,000. According to a news release, he represented two retired women who both required emergency surgery before recovering.
The complaint was prompted by a morning collision on Interstate 10 near Beaumont, Texas. An 18-wheeler smashed through a concrete barrier and into the oncoming lane, colliding with the women’s car. Both were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment and surgery. Both were later released and did not require any additional surgical treatment.
Paul Ferguson said, “The ladies suffered serious injuries, and their initial medical bills were significant. Both were retired and, fortunately, did not suffer any loss of income. This case proves, again, the non-economic value of a person’s health. No person should be measured simply by a medical invoice or paycheck. And we made sure these ladies were not. It was a tremendous result.”
The case was settled in Jefferson County district court shortly before the scheduled trial date.
“Yes, we have had good results. That is a tribute to my support staff,” Ferguson said. “It is the best staff I have ever had, and it shows in our results. And always remember that the results represent one thing: a client who trusted us to take care of them. I like to think we do that.”
