$2,000,000 settlement – teenager struck by truck (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. John Elliott Leighton brought a lawsuit against the trucking company and its driver for negligence, which was further exacerbated by the trucking company destroying the truck before it was subject to inspection.  After filing motions directed to the trucking company’s destruction of critical evidence,  Mr. Leighton obtained a $2,000,000 settlement on behalf of the parents of this teenager.
