Substantial 7 figure settlement against a trucking company whose driver rear ended a vehicle occupied by a family member of our client. The driver claimed our clients brake lights were not working and that he tried to stop before striking our client’s vehicle. An inspection of the client’s vehicle found that there was “hot shock” evidence on our client’s brake lights and they were illuminated at the time of impact. The black box data from the truck showed that the truck driver never applied his brakes prior to impact.
