Green Haines Sgambati Obtains $1 Million Settlement in Trucking Case

Picture this scenario: you are a backseat passenger in a motor vehicle, driving down a public roadway. The driver of your vehicle rear-ends a semi-tractor trailer, stopped on the roadway. This semi is not parked on a shoulder or off the road, but is idling in the roadway. The jaws of life have to extract you from the vehicle and doctors tell your family you may live the rest of your life as a quadriplegic. Then, you find out that the driver of your vehicle did not have automobile insurance at the time of the collision.

Your medical bills are growing by the hour and doctors are telling your family that they should expect you to be in the hospital for over three months. Who do you turn to? What recourse do you have?

This month, our office handled a case with this fact pattern and recovered $1,000,000.00 from the semi-truck’s commercial insurance policy. We were able to get our client the compensation he deserved as a no-fault passenger. There were a multitude of complex legal and factual issues to overcome, however, at Green Haines Sgambati, we have trained staff and knowledgeable attorneys to take on these types of difficult cases against large insurance companies and the trucking industry.
