$3,250,000 Recovery for Victim Struck by Tractor Trailer

In January 2008, a 29 year-old man had his legs crushed by a 135,000 pound tractor-trailer that rolled over him. The married father of two was struck by the truck that rolled down the hill from being in a dead stop. The trucking company blamed the driver, who was immune from suit.

When our personal injury attorneys at Abraham & Associates, P.C. picked up the case, we began to investigate what really happened. We uncovered that the truck rolled because the parking brakes and service brakes failed. Several federal safety regulations were broken by both the tractor and the trailer and the parking brakes failed federal safety requirements. Our team secured the amount of compensation by working with Thomas Gill, M.D., the team physician for the Boston Red Sox and New England Patriots. Thomas Gill demonstrated the extent of our client’s injuries and the future cost of his care. Abraham & Asscociates secured $3,250,000 for our client and his family. According to Massachusetts Lawyer’ Weekly, the settlement was the 13th largest in the state for the year of 2009.
