  • Truck Accident

    $4 Million Settlement

    The plaintiff, a 32-year-old man, suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result of a tractor-trailer collision.

    Liability was conceded. The issue was the extent of damages suffered by the plaintiff. The plaintiff sustained serious injuries, including multiple fractures of the sinus and orbit and subarachnoid and subdural hemorrhages, which kept him out of work for nearly a year. He was left with a permanent loss of smell, some difficulties with executive function, and encephalomalacia in the frontal lobe identified on MRI. Despite the severity of his injuries, plaintiff achieved an excellent recovery and returned to work full-time a year after the accident.

    Plaintiff conducted a focus group with three groups of jurors, which provided valuable insight into the value of the plaintiff’s case. Multiple illustrations of the plaintiff’s injuries were displayed to the jurors, and they clearly indicated that the illustrations were helpful to them to appreciate the extent of the plaintiff’s injuries and to understand the reasons why the plaintiff had some permanent sequelae. Additionally, video clips of the plaintiff and his wife were played for the jurors. The jurors stated that they found these individuals to be strong, credible and compelling witnesses.
