A driver fell asleep at the wheel of a company truck owned by driver's employer. The driver's employer allowed him to drive the company truck despite the fact that his license was suspended due to multiple speeding violations. The driver was in the fast lane on the 91 freeway near Los Angeles when he crashed into the rear of our client's vehicle. Our client's car was pushed into the rear of a third vehicle with enough force to cause the frontal air bags in our client's vehicle to deploy.
At the time of the accident, our 55-year-old client suffered a cervical disc herniation requiring a two-level discectomy and fusion with a titanium plate, screws, and cadaver bone. Because of the fusion, he is medically unable to continue working at his usual trade that he had learned over the decades.
We settled the case without the need for trial for $564,000.
