Truck Rear-ends Handicapped Van
At the time of the accident our client was in his wheelchair in the middle section of his handicapped van. His care provider was driving that vehicle and his mother was also a passenger in the vehicle. They were returning from a 2 month vacation in Florida when the accident took place in Tennessee. They were on a freeway on ramp and the driver of the van had to yield for traffic in front of them. Then suddenly, he heard a big truck downshifting and then heard the sound of the engine speeding up and they were rear ended. The impact blew out the back window of the van and caused extensive damage to the driver's side of the van. As a result of the accident, our client suffered neck, back and shoulder injuries.
At the time of the accident, our client owned his own business and was a computer programmer. He was completely disabled and unable to work for over 4 months following the accident. He now needs special equipment in order to complete his job.
Art Kosieradzki worked with a Tennessee attorney and they were able to settle this case for $650,000.
