Ladder Flies Off Trailer and Hits Car, Injuring Driver and Passenger

Posted by André E. Carman | Feb 22, 2012 | 0 Comments

Recently, our firm achieved a large 6 figure settlement for a young boy and his family injured in an auto accident. While driving along safely a ladder on a trailer being towed by the defendant flew off the the trailer and entered into our clients' vehicle causing serious injuries. The defendant blamed the event on a pedestrian crossing the road which caused a sudden emergency situation. There was no confirmation of that there was a pedestrian.

Despite this defense, we were able to get the defendant's significant insurance limits (he had no other assets) as well as those from another driver who subsequently hit our clients' vehicle causing minor damage. In the process we obtained reductions in medical bills of over $500,000 allowing the clients to have recovery for their serious injuries and the long term effects of this terrifying car wreck.
