Recovered $690,000.00 for Ontario CA Truck Accident Victim
Trucking Accident, Ontario, Ca. Attorney Samer Habbas of the Law Offices of Samer Habbas & Associates Inc. P.C. secured a settlement in the amount of $690,000.00 for an individual who was involved an accident with an 18 wheeler. Our client was traveling on a surface street when an operator of an 18 wheeler initiated a left hand turn into a gas station driveway. Our client was unable to stop in time and struck the trailer. As a result of the impact, he sustained facial fractures/injuries and psychological injuries consisting of post traumatic stress disorder.
This was a highly contentious matter in which the Defense vigorously argued that our client was speeding and braked late due to inattentiveness. Due to such, the insurance company refused to accept any responsibility for the injuries sustained by our client. Attorney Samer Habbas immediately filed a lawsuit and engaged in an aggressive litigation strategy, which included the depositions of several people associated with the trucking company, police officers, witnesses, and medical doctors. Furthermore, several experts were retained to investigate the collision and its injuries to the fullest extent.
Despite the alleged comparative fault that our client that would have likely been confirmed by a. jury, we were able to convince the Defense at mediation to settle this matter at $690,000.00.
