$5,600,000.00 Truck Accident - Semi-Tractor Trailer Fatigued Driver Crash

thefirm Oct 23, 2012

A family of four was traveling on vacation using U.S. Highway 27 for their trip to Walt Disney World. They were stopped at a traffic light when a fully loaded semi-tractor trailer rear-ended the family vehicle. One family member was killed and the other suffered serious injuries. In litigation, Mr. Moody took a video deposition of the defendant truck driver who admitted that he was in violation of Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations for sleep deprivation and for too many hours on the job without adequate rest. Punitive damages were claimed, resulting in a $5,600,000.00 award.
