    $3,560,000 Settlement — Leg Injuries From Trucking Crash

    On the highways there is no greater over-the-road danger than a tractor-trailer.  Carrying as much as 80,000 pounds at high speed, these trucks are capable of terrible destruction if the trucker is distracted, fatigued or just plain negligent.  In this case, our client’s vehicle was hit by a distracted trucker.  He suffered serious injuries to his leg and shoulder, and was unable to remain working in his job as a foreman.

    Leighton Law’s John Leighton recovered $3,560,000 for this Central Florida client who sustained serious leg and shoulder injuries when his car was hit by a tractor-trailer.  A confidential settlement was reached which provided our client and his family with the financial security to offset his lost income and future medical expenses.

    This is one more example of a distracted trucker taking away the health and livelihood of a man who worked his entire life.
