$3.75 Million

Tractor Trailer and Distracted Driving

The Case: A 60,000-pound tractor trailer truck struck a 61-year-old Bennettsville couple's vehicle from behind as they slowed to turn into their driveway. The truck driver was talking on his phone at the time of the crash.

The Outcome: To secure justice for the couple, we took on Unifi, a publicly-traded manufacturing company based in Greensboro, North Carolina. Unifi has its own private fleet of approximately 60 tractor trailer trucks.

The two-year legal battle went all the way to trial in federal court before a $3.75 million settlement was reached. Most notably, the settlement requires Unifi to ban cell phone use by its commercial drivers, setting a precedent that will permanently transform safety procedures in the trucking industry.
