Semi trailer accident results in $2.75M settlement

A motorist who was injured in a crash with a semi trailer has been awarded nearly $3 million in a settlement.

On March 6, 2020, while traveling on Interstate 95 the plaintiff was rear-ended by a semi trailer. Following the initial impact, the plaintiff was transported to the hospital where he was treated for a left-sided acetabular fracture, posterior wall acetabulum rim fracture, a right-sided ulnar fracture, and a tibial fracture.

According to the plaintiff’s attorney Meredith Hinton, the following day the plaintiff had surgery to address his left nondisplaced posterior wall acetabulum rim fracture, lateral tibial plateau fracture, and his right displaced distal ulnar shaft fracture. The plaintiff was released after two days in the hospital and continued to follow up with the orthopedist.

Many details of this case have been withheld due to a confidentiality agreement.
