By nature, trucking accidents are often devastating, since serious injuries and wrongful death often result. Therefore, our lawyers do everything in their power to find answers and get justice in these cases. In this video, attorney Gene Riddle gives an example of a truck accident case which did not seem to have a straightforward answer at the outset. However, in the end, Gene and our investigators were able to obtain a favorable verdict for the family of a fatal truck accident victim.
The little girl’s case, who was killed by the tractor-trailer driver. Was a case that came in, as I said before, on a Saturday morning. And I met with the dad. And a lot of people have asked me, Gene why did you take that case? When I took that case, I didn’t know how it was going to turn out. But I was meeting with the father of a child who had died. And she was 16 years old. There was no way I was telling that dad, I’m not going to give it everything I’ve got. I would have taken that case no matter what. The initial wreck report we had from law-enforcement indicated that his little 16-year-old daughter was liable for the wreck. And indicated that she had run a red light. He was adamant it didn’t happen that way. I called one of my investigators right after I met with the father. And he was on the investigation immediately. And we got a very good resolution. We even got the law enforcement to charge the tractor trailer driver with misdemeanor death by motor vehicle. And he lost his license for a year and we felt great about that that was justice.
