GJEL Accident Attorneys recovered $195,000 for a 20 year-old woman who suffered a severe ankle fracture when her small sedan ran into a flat bed tractor trailer truck while it was making an illegal U-turn on Highway 152 in California. Defendants contended that plaintiff should have seen the truck in time to avoid the collision, but GJEL Accident Attorneys used expert consultants, including a retired CHP officer, to prove that the big rig truck would not have appeared as a danger to plaintiff until it was too late for her to avoid the accident. GJEL Accident Attorneys also worked with plaintiff’s surgeon and treating podiatrist, using both medical reports and a deposition of the physician to confirm that the permanent injury would limit the activities of the plaintiff, who had plans to be a cheerleader at the college and professional level for the rest of her life.
