A tractor-trailer driver negligently tried to make an illegal u-turn directly in the path of my client’s vehicle. Being unable to stop in time, my client’s vehicle struck the tractor-trailer. After taking depositions in Wisconsin, I demanded that the trucking company pay my client and his passengers for their serious injuries and losses. The trucking company refused and hired an “expert” accident reconstructionist who was also a stand-up comedian. Rather than face the embarrassment of that fact coming to light at trial, the trucking company’s insurance company agreed to mediate the case and pay my clients reasonable amounts of money for their injuries.
