Tractor-Trailer Truck Wreck
We represented the four adult sisters of a gentleman who died as a result of a truck wreck. At the time of his death, he was traveling south on Highway 65 in Marshall, Missouri approaching the I-70 entrance ramp. As he approached the intersection, a southbound truck, hauling a 77-foot concrete bridge beam, attempted to get onto I-70 east from the left lane. Essentially, the truck blocked all of the lanes of traffic causing both vehicles to collide. The defense in this case argued that our client’s brother should not have been driving on the highway because he suffered from macular degeneration. They further argued that he was speeding and not paying attention. We were able to overcome these defenses and a confidential settlement was reached with the defendants.
