William P. Moore recently obtained at $5.55 million settlement on behalf of his client, who was seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident, due to the negligence of a tractor-trailer operator.
Mr. Moore’s client, who was a professional tree-trimmer at the time of the accident, was the passenger in a car that was taking him to work. The automobile, which was traveling on a highway in a rural community in Western New York, was being closely followed by a commercial tractor-trailer. As the victim’s vehicle slowed for a roadway condition, the tractor-trailer operator, who was not maintaining a proper distance, rear-ended the automobile. The force of the impact was so great that it propelled the victim’s vehicle nearly thirty feet and scattered debris along the roadway.
William P. Moore recently obtained a $4 million settlement on behalf of his client, a pedestrian, who was injured due to the negligence of a distracted driver.
Accident Caused by Distracted Driver
Mr. Moore’s client, who was a college student at the time of the accident, was walking to her vehicle after an afternoon class. As she attempted to cross the street at a designated crosswalk, a distracted driver pulled forward and struck her.
As a result of the collision, the college student suffered multiple injuries, including a traumatic brain injury. Despite extensive treatment, the student was able to return to school and attain her degree. When asked about the case, Mr. Moore stated “while this result will allow my client to move beyond this chapter of her life, I am most proud of my client’s resilience and determination to not allow her physical limitations to deter her recovery or lofty career goals.”
