Client Happy With Settlement After 18-Wheeler Collision

Berenson Injury Law has resolved a case filed on behalf of a man who was injured outside of Fort Worth last year. He was driving his pickup truck on a hilly road with very poor visibility when he collided with a tractor-trailer that had pulled out in front of him. He was taken to the hospital with various injuries.

However liability was disputed. The trucking company attorneys accused him of improper lookout and speeding and there were other issues to contend with.

We obtained a favorable result, then cut his medical bills to put more money in his pocket. With clear liability and more serious injuries, we would have taken the case to trial.

Our client was very happy. He wanted us to meet his cute little girl when he came in to get his check and kindly wrote this review:

Mr. Berenson is the best! He far exceeded all of my expectations and I got far more money than I thought I would! Mr. Berenson made sure that I got everything that I needed! His office is courteous, efficient and great at what they do! I highly recommend his service!

Thanks for the privilege of representing you, John, and for that wonderful note.

Commercial vehicles are a threat

No one ever thinks he or she will be in a vehicle crash, especially with an 18-wheeler. But unfortunately there were over 30,000 people injured and 4,300 fatalities this way in 2017. When an 80,000 or more gross weight vehicle rated vehicle collides with your much smaller car or truck, it is almost inevitable that you and your passengers are going to gert hurt.

We believe that commercial trucking companies need to do a much better job reducing the number of these crashes.

They need to hire better drivers, train them, supervise them, and terminate them when they cause wrecks or violate traffic laws including using hand held cell phones while driving – one of the leading causes of motor vehicle wrecks. Our streets and highways are far too dangerous.

Commercial truck companies know how to try to avoid paying damages to injured people after their drivers cause crashes.

From the first moment, they employ rapid response teams including attorneys and accident reconstruction experts which immediately go to the scene, gather (and hide) critical evidence, get favorable police reports and witness statements, repair the truck, avoid “black box” downloads, and accuse the other driver of causing the crash (like what happened in this case).
