Victory for Monoxide Poisoning and Brain Damage Victim

In January 2016, Abraham & Associates, P.C. represented a client who suffered permanent neurological and psychological symptoms from carbon monoxide poisoning, due to driving defective tractor trailer.

Our team of Boston truck accident lawyers investigated the tractor maintenance practices of the leasing company. Unsurprisingly, the company and employees admitted to violating maintenance practices established by Federal Trucking regulations (FMCSA). They also admitted to consciously choosing to violate the maintenance manual that came with the truck. When national management was questioned, they confessed that the policy to violate the maintenance manual was a national policy.

With this discovery, we were able to successfully piece together that the trucking company knew that the tractor was leaking exhaust and, instead of fixing the problem like they told the driver they did, they opted to lie and not fix the leak, resulting in a practice violation and brain damage injuries sustained by the client. The defendant would be liable for punitive damages due to this negligence.

Our team had to take extra steps in order to prove that our client had sustained brain damage, since previous imaging showed that the client’s brain was normal. Our brain injury attorneys sent the victim to a weeklong intensive evaluation with the world’s leading experts in carbon monoxide poisoning. There, our client underwent advanced neuroimaging that showed that the client’s brain had significant atrophy.

With proof of serious damage and negligence on the defendant’s part, our firm was ready to recover the necessary compensation for our client. The defense tried to schedule a mediation and lowball our client with 1 million dollar settlement. Since our team is committed to aggressive representation and dedicated to the best interests of our clients, we rejected this offer and sent a bad faith letter to the insurance company. Within weeks, the case settled for close to a confidential, eight figure amount.
