The Phone Slipped From His Hand. What Happened Next Changed Everything.
The phone slipped from his hand and became stuck between the seat and driver's side door. As he looked down, fumbling to find it, the light ahead changed to red.
His truck struck our client's small car at 45mph. The collision forever changed her life. Broken bones and surgeries kept her occupied for the next 18 months.
The truck driver's insurance company and its lawyers refused to settle the case and forced us into arbitration. We won a large award that provided our client with enough money to take care of her for the rest of her life.
Our client wishes the truck driver was never on his phone to this day.
Her pain is constant. The scars are obvious.
Distracted driving is avoidable. Just don't do it.
Lead by example.
