Track Record of Large Trucking Verdicts and Settlements

DISCLAIMER: PAST RESULTS ARE NOT INDICATIVE OF FUTURE RESULTS

Our firm has secured numerous multi-million dollar settlements and jury verdicts in trucking accident cases. For example, we secured a $5.5 million structured settlement for a child who suffered a serious brain injury after a tractor-trailer slammed into the back of her family’s vehicle in Virginia Beach, Virginia. This settlemwnt included a structured annuity which could bring the total value up to $21 million.

We also secured a $3.5 million settlement in a truck accident wrongful death case where a passenger died in a crash on Interstate 264 in Norfolk, Virginia involving an 18-wheeler.

Along with the $5.5 structured settlement and the $3.5 million settlement, our team of Virginia truck accident lawyers secured a $2.4 million settlement for the estate of a man who lost his life in a trucking accident that occurred on a rural highway in Virginia. Similar to the I-264 accident, the victim was a passenger in an automobile that was clipped by a large tractor-trailer.

These results are reflective of the fact that our firm is fully capable of handling major trucking accident and wrongful death cases in Virginia and throughout the Southeastern United States.
