Truck-Auto Collision Settlement

Our client, a young woman in her 20s at the time of the crash, was rear ended by a semi-truck tractor-trailer traveling too fast to be able to stop in a construction zone.  The trucker, who had been with the company for many years, was ultimately fired due to this incident.
