Litigation Type - Semi Truck Accidents

Client Injury - Death

Our client was involved in a chain reaction accident on a freeway. The accident was caused by an uninsured driver that pulled out on to the freeway after having stopped on the shoulder.  That vehicle was hit by a passing car while he was trying to merge.  Our client and the car ahead of him were slowing to avoid the collision ahead of them and our client was rear-ended by a semi truck and was instantly killed.

Bill Bongard obtained a recovery for the family of the deceased in the amount of $950,000.
