The plaintiff, Joe, a driver who was involved in a head on collision with a tractor trailer on the Turnpike around Indian River County. We recovered $2,250,000 in damages when we successfully tried the car accident case.
Joe was moving lanes from a two lane road and came to the tractor trailer lane. The tractor trailer told police officers that the plaintiff came into his lane and there was nothing he could do to brace for impact. Which cause the plaintiff to be involved in a head on collision with the tractor trailer and passed away on impact.
Joe unfortunately passed away due to the accident.
Cohen & Cohen fought for these rights and hired accident reconstruction experts as well as trucking experts to prove that the tractor trailer driver could have safely avoided the accident by exiting the roadway to the right as they are required to do so to have avoided the entire accident.
As a direct result to this accident, we were able to recovered for the client $2, 250,000
