Partners Donald R. Fountain, Mark W. Clark, and attorney Shana P. Nogues represented the personal representative of the estate of the surviving parents whose son was killed as a result of the negligence of the driver of an 18-wheeler.
The defendant driver was operating the fully loaded rig on a suspended driver's license at the time of the crash.
A wrongful death lawsuit was filed against the trucking company, the tractor-trailer driver, trailer, and the owner of the trailer for negligence after operation of the tractor-trailer for violations of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Act. Following the crash, the decedent suffered incapacitating injuries and underwent extensive medical treatment and multiple surgeries to try and save his life before he passed away.
The medical bills alone were in excess of $2,600,000 million dollars.
After extensive discovery was conducted the case was confidentially settled on behalf of the estate and surviving parents.
