Car Crushed Under Semi


Litigation Type - Semi Truck Accidents

Client Injury - Back and Pelvic Injuries

Our client was waiting to turn left at a T in the road when, without warning, a vehicle sped from behind him and crashed in to the rear of his car. The force of the impact knocked our client's car in to oncoming traffic where a semi truck was unfortunately driving by. Our client's vehicle was shoved underneath the bed of the semi truck all the way up to the windshield. Police and ambulance responded to the accident to assist our client and extricate him from the vehicle.

Our client sustained severe injuries to his low back and pelvic region. He suffered multiple non-displaced fractures in his pelvic region and ultimately had a back fusion. He had six screws and two rods placed in his back after 18 months of conservative treatment with epidural and steroid injections.

Cory Whalen successfully recovered $275,000 from the at-fault driver's insurance company.

My boyfriend was hit by a car and while all the attorneys he talked to said he didn't have much chance of a case, SiebenCarey took him on and gave him a fighting chance. He's still recovering, but SiebenCarey is making it a lot easier.
