Semi Runs Red Light and Pulls into Path of Car Causing Near Fatality
A semi tractor-trailer ran a red light, crossed three lanes of traffic, and pulled directly into the path of our client’s vehicle. The driver of the semi told investigating officers that he never saw the car until after the collision. Our client was pinned under the dashboard of the car and it took emergency responders more than one hour to extricate her from the wreckage. She suffered life-threatening injuries, which included numerous broken bones and loss of blood, bone and muscle from her lower extremities. Brady Preston Gronlund filed a lawsuit on her behalf against the semi owner/operator and the motor carrier/lessee, bringing trucking liability claims under both state and federal law for past and future loss of function of the body, past and future physical and mental pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life. Mediation was successful and our client received a confidential satisfactory settlement.
