$1,150,000 Recovery in Garbage Truck Accident Case

Truck Accident - Vehicle Accident

WRSH attorneys Joseph Stoduto and Bryce Moses were able to obtain a settlement in the amount of $1,150,000 on behalf of our client, a 35-year-old man from Kings County. Our client was driving along a street in Brooklyn when a garbage truck began speeding up the block in reverse, causing a serious collision. As a result of the accident, our client suffered injuries to his neck that required surgery. We were able to prove that the defendant driver knowingly violated company protocol in driving in this manner without even attempting to use his partner as a spotter at the rear of his truck. The defendants’ lawyers attempted to get our client’s case dismissed on the grounds that the defendant driver’s conduct did not rise to the level of "reckless" conduct, as required by law. Joseph was able to get the Court to deny the defendants’ motion to dismiss the case. Bryce took the case to trial and was able to settle the case for the amount of $1,150,000.
