$45,000 Settlement in Semi-Truck Merging Accident

Our male client was a passenger in a vehicle attempting to merge lanes, when the car was cut off by large semi-truck. The semi-truck struck hit our client’s vehicle with such force that it was pushed into the concrete median, resulting in the car being trapped between the concrete median and the semi-truck. This led to the man suffering from serious injuries to his neck, back and right shoulder, consisting of disc bulges as well as superior and posterior glenoid labrums.

The man underwent extensive treatment with an orthopedic specialist and physical therapy. As a result, he could not return to work and experienced severe loss of normal life. Our Chicago truck accident attorneys handled the matter and secured a settlement of $45,000 from for his injuries and pain and suffering.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
