$5,400,000.00 Recovery Against Tractor Trailer Truck For Crossing Center Line in Floyd County, Georgia. The Floyd County trucking lawyers at Werner & Associates filed suit against Vend Service, Inc., and Vendco Distributing, Inc. after the major trucking company’s driver swerved out of his lane, struck a tree, and then traveled back onto the road, crossed a double yellow line and struck our client. The trucking wreck occurred on Georgia State Route 20 in Floyd County. SR 20 runs through portions of Floyd, Bartow, Cherokee, Forsyth, Gwinnett, Walton, Rockdale, Newton, and Henry counties in northwestern and north-central Georgia and is a major route for tractor trailers in Georgia.
Painful Injuries due to Tractor-Trailer Wreck
After the serious tractor-trailer wreck, our client was taken via helicopter to Grady Memorial Hospital where she underwent surgery on her pelvis. Approximately six months later, her hip became dislocated and she underwent another pelvis surgery and ultimately required a total hip replacement due to the tractor-trailer wreck.
We worked with our client’s treating physicians to fully understand her injuries and how the trucking wreck had destroyed her life. We learned that she would require multiple additional hip surgeries over her lifetime due to her age and deterioration of her hip and that she would be permanently disabled. The Defendant’s expert from Johns Hopkins believed that she would not require any additional hip surgery and that she would be able to resume her normal activities once she recovered.
Taking the Case to Trial
After the trucking lawyers at Werner & Associates filed suit against the trucking company, we were able to fully investigate the wreck itself and the safety record of the truck driver and the trucking company. After setting the case for trial, the case was resolved for five million and four hundred thousand dollars.
