$1,900,000 Settlement – Truck Crash Resulting in Death (Polk County, FL)

John Elliott Leighton was brought in to litigate this trucking case along with co-counsel Steven C. Laird of Fort Worth, Texas.  This tragedy occurred during a  violent thunderstorm in Auburndale in Polk County, Florida, when a tractor trailer ignored a four way stop (the traffic light was not working because of a power outage) and struck a pickup truck, killing the father of five children. The case was settled for the insurance limits of $1,900,000 prior to trial in United States District Court.
