This 30-year old client was rendered a quadriplegic after his automobile struck the back-end of a dump truck that had stopped in a live lane of travel on the Pennsylvania Turnpike. The trucker was an independent contractor hired by a company performing roadway repairs. The truck driver's insurance limits were not adequate to compensate the victim. Rosen Louik & Perry lawyers were able to identify three areas of active negligence committed by the general contractor that proximately caused the accident. The contractor disagreed and made no offer to settle the case. Following a ten-day trial, a federal jury awarded $6,485,404.62 and found that the General Contractor was more responsible than the truck driver. Rosen Louik & Perry represented the client's paralysis injury claim in court.
