Imagine driving along Ygnacio Valley Road in Concord, minding your own business, when suddenly, disaster strikes. Our client found herself in this very situation. She was traveling in the left lane, when an enormous big-rig truck from the right lane veered into her path. Panic set in as she realized the truck was drifting dangerously close.
In a desperate attempt to avoid the impending collision, she hit the gas pedal, but it was too late. The left front end of the massive truck collided with the right rear end of her car in a violent crash. The impact was so forceful that a child’s car seat from the back of her vehicle rocketed forward, striking her in the face and head.
The Legal Battle
The aftermath of this harrowing accident left our client with mounting medical bills and a loss of income due to her injuries. The Concord Personal Injury Attorneys at GJEL were called upon to provide the help she desperately needed. The defendants in this case were not just one party, but three – the trucking company, the company from which they leased the truck, and the truck’s driver.
Our diligent legal team uncovered crucial information from a passenger in the big rig, revealing that the driver had been involved in a heated argument for thirty minutes prior to the accident. This confrontation had caused the driver to run two red lights, making it clear that negligence played a significant role in the collision.
At GJEL, we take pride in being not just legal advocates but also caring partners in our clients’ journeys to justice. We collaborated closely with the client’s treating physicians to build a solid case on her behalf. Through unwavering dedication and meticulous attention to detail, we fought tirelessly to secure the compensation she deserved.
The result was a triumph of justice. We successfully recovered a staggering $992,969.40 for our client. This substantial settlement not only alleviated her financial burden but also brought her the peace of mind she so rightfully deserved.
