Massachusetts Truck Rollover Accident Injuries – $650,000 Settlement

Our 31-year-old client, a driver of a 32′ tanker truck, sustained a severe spinal cord injury after his truck was involved in a rollover accident. Our client was forced off the road by another commercial vehicle that caused his truck to roll over.

What Happened

Our client was driving his truck when a utility van cut across his path of travel.

When our client applied the brakes to avoid a collision with the van, the tanker skidded and resulted in a rollover truck accident that concluded with the tanker resting on its roof.

Injuries from the Accident

Luckily, our client was wearing his seat belt at the time of the accident, which saved his life. However, he hit his head on the interior roof during the rollover accident. This caused numerous injuries, including spinal cord injury, numbness in his arms and dizziness.

He has made an excellent recovery, but still experiences some residual pain. A spinal cord injury can be as simple as whiplash and require minimal treatment, or as severe as permanent damage that results in paralysis or death. Spinal cord injury is common in rollover accidents because of the traumatic motions the vehicle goes through in the process.

Multiple Parties Responsible in Personal Injury Claim

In this case, the company that owned the utility van and the company that repaired the brakes on our client’s tanker truck were both found to have contributed to this Massachusetts truck accident.

In accident cases that involve a commercial vehicle, the company that employed the negligent driver may also be held liable for your injuries. The same liability goes for auto repair centers that perform maintenance on your vehicle. In this case, the brake system on the tanker truck was recently checked, yet failed to perform properly during the rollover accident. This allowed our firm to seek damages from the repair company as well.

How a Truck Accident Attorney Can Help

Our client received a $650,000 settlement for her spinal cord injuries in this Massachusetts truck accident caused by driver and repair center negligence.

When considering your own Massachusetts truck accident claim you may not realize that you can hold more than just the other driver liable for your injuries. An experienced Boston truck accident lawyer will know which parties to investigate to determine who was liable for your accident. Repair centers, trucking companies, inspection agencies and equipment manufacturers may all be partially to blame for the circumstances resulting in your injury.

If you or a loved one have been injured in a truck accident, it is in your best interest to talk to an experienced Boston truck accident lawyer to determine the strength of your claim and identify the liable parties.
