Edwards and Ragatz’s policy-limit settlement in a semi vs. car accident case made the American Association for Justice’s Motor Vehicle Law Reporter. The October 26, 2010 article describes how the semi truck driver swerved and hit our client causing multiple, painful injuries that will affect the mother and son for the rest of their lives.
Our clients sued both the truck driver and his employer, alleging the company was liable for his negligent driving after he tested positive for cocaine in a post-accident drug test. The parties settled before trial for the defendant’s $1-million policy limit. You can view more information about this case in our August 13, 2010 press release.

All results of cases handled by the lawyer/firm are not provided and the results provided are not necessarily representative of results obtained by the lawyer/firm or of the experience of all clients or others with the lawyer/firm. Every case is different, and each client’s case must be evaluated and handled on its own merits.
