Woman Rear-Ended By Concrete Truck While Stopped in Traffic
We recently helped a woman who was severely injured by a concrete truck driver. Unfortunately some companies believe that profits are more important than public safety. A woman was stopped in traffic when a concrete truck failed to maintain control of the vehicle or stop in a timely manner. Her vehicle was struck so hard she hit the vehicle ahead of her as well. The woman was rushed to the hospital by EMS. She suffered permanent injuries to her neck and spine.
The concrete truck driver was hired by the company despite having been fired from a previous employer for failing a drug test. Two other previous employers fired the driver for failing to meet safety standards. The woman hired Jason McMinn and Justin McMinn to handle her auto - truck accident case. Prior to trial, she was ultimately awarded $1,000,000 for the pain and suffering she experienced because of the rear-end accident.

The man sustained several severe and life changing injuries. After the car-truck accident he was left with a hangman's fracture of the C2 cervical spine, fractures in the thoracic spine, and a fracture to his sternum. He underwent surgery as part of his extensive medical treatment.
