Families reach settlement against trucking company

On February 8, 2003 a truck driver for the largest milk hauler in the United States fell asleep at the wheel of his tractor-trailor causing the deaths of two women. Our firm was retained to represent the family of one of the women. All practical discovery was handled by Clay Miller on behalf of both women's families. After the milk hauler's insurance company failed to make a fair settlement offer, our firm took the case to trial as lead trial counsel. During trial, the settlement demand was increased three times. After a week and a half of trial, the excess carrier agreed to a $5,800,000.00** settlement.


** A contingent (%) fee charged on the successful recovery resulted in a fee of $2,320,000.00 and $85,600.00 in litigation expenses which were reimbursed by the client out of the gross settlement amount.
