Settlement for Tractor Trailer / Trucking Negligence

The Case: A 62-year-old old man was killed when his vehicle collided with a piece of farm equipment that was being transported on a 18-wheeler. The tracks of the combine were protruding over the center line into Decedent's oncoming lane of travel. The Defendants claimed that Decedent did not see the approaching escort vehicle and "wide load" signage because he was legally blind in one eye, had deteriorating medical conditions which affected the vision of his other eye. They claimed he was comparatively negligent for not taking any evasive action to avoid the load.

The Outcome: With no meaningful offer of settlement was made, Yarborough Applegate's attorneys were associated to assist as trial counsel 60 days prior to trial. The case was settled at trial after jury selection.
