Trucker receives $750,000 payout following Florida crash

After previously being hurt in a trucking accident, a man is finally getting the compensation he deserves in Florida. According to a story from Dec. 20, a Florida trucker has received a $750,000 settlement from a crash that took place in June 2011. He suffered serious injuries in the crash that required surgery.

What happened? The man had been in the parking lot of Good Humor in Hazelton, Florida, sleeping inside his tractor-trailer. It was at around 5:00 a.m. when another trucker failed to avoid the truck and hit him. The man was thrown from his sleeper berth and fell to the ground. He suffered from serious injuries; his leg and back were injured badly enough to require surgery.

After filing the lawsuit against the driver and his employer, New Prime Inc., the trial was set to proceed in 2012. It was going to go to trial, but a settlement was reached outside court. It's believed that the settlement is enough to cover the man's past, present, and future medical needs and bills and will be able to supplement his lower earning capacity, since he's earned less as a result of the accident.

Not all cases like this have to end in a settlement, but when the settlement is enough to care for you, your family, and your medical needs, it can be enough. If you've been in a truck accident and are considering taking legal action, it's important to speak with someone about your case. You may be able to recover more money than you think, and you want to be sure your case is solid before you head to court.
