$250,000 Truck Accident Settlement After Tractor Trailer Collision Led To Back Surgery

Settlement – Dec 12, 2022

In late April of 2020, our client was driving northbound on I-370 in Bridgeton, Missouri, and maneuvered into the middle lane between two tractor trailers. The tractor trailer collided into the driver’s side of the client’s car, causing our client to veer to the right and collide into the other tractor trailer, which resulted in injuries to the client’s entire spine. Following the accident, our client was sent to the emergency room, and later to an orthopedic surgeon who discovered she had suffered spinal disc injuries. The client tried treatment with injections and physical therapy, but ultimately received microdiscectomy surgery.

Video footage made it appear that both vehicles may have arrived in the middle lane at the same time.  However, the legal team at Brown & Coruppen Law Firm was able to hold the responsible party accountable for improper lane usage. Our lawyers were able to achieve a final settlement amount of $250,000 for our client.
