$1,200,000 Settlement – truck changes lane into car starstarstarstarstar

When an 18 wheeler carrying a large load changed lanes into our client’s lane, the impact caused the smaller car off the road. The car struck a tree and our client suffered serious neurologic injuries.  The truck driver and his trucking company denied any responsibility, and claimed that our client had changed lanes into the truck. John Elliott Leighton litigated the case against the trucker and the trucking company he was working for.  The company only maintained $1 million in liability insurance.  After hard fought litigation, the case was settled just prior to trial for $1,200,000.
