Yarborough Applegate Secures $1.2 Million for Childcare Worker & Mother of Three Killed by Lumber Truck Driver
Our client, a 56-year old mother of three and longtime child caregiver, was bicycling to work at a local church daycare center, when she was struck and killed by the 24-year-old driver of a flatbed commercial truck loaded with lumber. The local police’s initial investigation took the word of the driver, that he was obeying the speed limit and that the cyclist darted out in front of him – without downloading the truck’s ECM data, which revealed that the lumber truck was speeding at the time of the accident. The police initially found the decedent cyclist at-fault. Yarborough Applegate exposed the truck driver’s lies, the police’s flawed investigation, and ultimately secured a $1.2 million settlement for our client’s family.
