    $2,000,000 settlement – teenager struck by truck and killed (Central Florida)

    This was a Central Florida tragedy.  A 14-year-old boy walking home from school was run over and killed by a dump truck. This is one of the fears that every parent has when their children are outside.

    John Elliott Leighton brought a lawsuit against the trucking company and its driver for negligence.  The negligence, which the company denied, was made worse by the trucking company destroying the truck before it was subject to inspection.  After proving that the trucking company destroyed critical evidence,  Mr. Leighton obtained a $2,000,000 settlement on behalf of the parents of this teenager.
