$775,000 Settlement for Injuries in Truck Accident

William O. Crutchlow, Esq. of Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow, LLP with offices in Edison, Toms River and Red Bank, New Jersey recently settled a case for a commercial truck driver who was injured when the box truck he was operating was struck by a tandem dump truck that had sustained a tire failure. Our client suffered injuries to his left shoulder and knee, a concussion and developed Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. He underwent surgery to repair the shoulder and knee damage, but has been left with limitations in his ability to use these joints and has been unable to physically requalify for his Commercial Driver’s License. He suffers from chronic headaches and continues to endure some cognitive dysfunction. Our client is an Army veteran who was unable to complete his term in the National Guard to qualify for his military pension due to his injuries. He has been able to return to work and to most of his activities, but will face the rest of his life with the permanent consequences of his injuries.
