Tractor-Trailer Crash on Hwy 301

Written by Troy Marsh |

As he was driving a tractor-trailer on Highway 301, a truck driver changed from the left lane to the right lane without making sure the left lane was clear. The 80,000-pound tractor-trailer struck the side of a car in the left lane, sending it spinning violently out of control. The spinning car crossed the center line, slammed into my client’s oncoming truck, and sent it flying airborne, with its roof landing on the asphalt. My client’s shoulder was destroyed, and his scalp was mangled. I filed suit against the trucking company and its driver, whose vision had been obstructed by an oxygen mask that he was wearing because of his heart condition. After months of litigation, I demanded that the trucking company’s insurance company compensate my client for his losses, and they agreed.
