Woman Loses Father; Husband is Permanently Brain Dead

Road construction brought traffic to a halt for all, but an inattentive driver of a tractor trailer who slammed into the rear end of a stopped Toyota Matrix. The impact forced the Toyota driver to rear-end another vehicle. The driver of the Toyota sustained serious injuries, her husband suffered permanent brain damage, and her father died at the scene.

The injured couple filed a wrongful death lawsuit. Additionally, they sought damages for injuries they sustained. The suit alleged that the truck driver was speeding and inattentive, and as a result, he lost control of the tractor trailer. The truck driver could not recall the impact and was unable to describe the accident, both indications to the plaintiffs that he was not paying attention or that he fell asleep at the wheel. The lawsuit also alleged that the truck driver fabricated his statement to police claiming that the glare from the sun prevented him from seeing the stopped traffic. Two years later, a $26 million settlement was reached.

If you lost a loved one or been seriously injured because of the negligence or wrongdoing of someone else, it is important to discuss the potential of a wrongful death/personal injury lawsuit with an experienced attorney. Let’s assume that an attorney takes your case and you have been advised that, like this case, a settlement may realistically take two years. Let’s also assume that due to your own injuries you are unable to work, medical bills are mounting, and you have unpaid funeral and burial expenses; all in addition to the normal monthly household bills. What can you do to avoid debt?
