Wrongful Death Lawsuit Involving Federal Motor Carrier

Client: Federal Motor Carrier

We defended a federal motor carrier whose driver was accused of striking vehicle on interstate and leaving it disabled in the roadway. The driver was accused of hit-and-run, negligently operating the truck, and failing to render aide at the scene. The motor carrier was also accused of negligent hiring, retention, training, and supervision. We negotiated a favorable settlement for our client following two weeks of trial, just before closing arguments.
