Our client is a member of the Iron Workers Union. He was installing rebar on an overpass of the 5 Freeway when a truck hauling a mobile home collided with the overpass. The truck had deviated from its normal route and its load was too tall to clear the underpass. The impact from the collision caused our client to be thrown into the air, landing on his knees. The client sustained meniscal tears to both knees, requiring surgery. In April, 2017, we obtained a settlement for our client for far greater than the insurance company had originally offered.
