Cullan & Cullan Wins $19.6 Million for Victim of Truck Crash with Spinal Cord Damage
The accident occurred on October 31, 2012, when a concrete truck turned into the man's lane, forcing his pickup off the road, resulting in a crash. While the defendants (the truck driver and the concrete company) claimed that the victim caused the crash by trying to pass on the shoulder of the highway, the jury found that it was the big rig driver's negligence.
The man, who now has to use a wheelchair, is continuing to work on his rehabilitation, now with the aid of compensation from the at-fault parties.
Spinal cord injuries are serious matters. These devastating losses can cause paralysis and permanent loss of bodily functions. While some trauma can be healed with skilled medical care, many suffer permanent disabilities each year, often in accidents caused by reckless individuals or organizations.
If you or a loved one has suffered spinal cord damage in an accident caused by someone else's negligence, you have the right to seek compensation for your losses. The recovery process will be a challenge, but success in your case will give you the chance to heal to the best of your abilities.
