Car Driver Swerves, Causes Semi to Crash: $1.2 Million

A long-haul driver swerved to avoid a hit-and-run driver, and despite heroically avoiding killing the hit-and-run driver, suffered a severe wrist injury when his rig jack-knifed. The employer and insurance company fought the claim. We won a $750,000 arbitration award. The insurance company filed an appeal to overturn the award. We won $1.2 million — for a severely broken wrist.
