We represented the family of a welder who was killed in a motor vehicle accident with an 18-wheeler in Jackson County, Texas. After a thorough investigation, we satisfactorily resolved the family’s claims without filing a lawsuit. During the investigation process, we obtained numerous recorded interviews with the first responders, emergency room physicians, and law enforcement personnel. These interviews conclusively demonstrated that the driver of the 18-wheeler and his employer were entirely at fault for the accident. As a result, we were able to convince the trucking company to compensate the family for their tremendous loss without forcing them to go through a difficult and protracted lawsuit.
