Schultz & Myers Personal Injury Lawyers Obtains $2,700,100 For Truck Crash With No Contact

Posted on

Personal injury attorneys at Schultz & Myers Personal Injury Lawyers have been getting quite a bit of recognition after a recent result of $2,700,100 on behalf of our client.
What made this case so significant was that the 18 wheeler truck that caused the crash actually did not make any contact with our client’s vehicle.
Our client was passing a semi-truck when the truck changed lanes very quickly. This is a common practice among truckers as they like to use the momentum of speed to pass, rather than remain behind another vehicle.
With a semi-truck on her right side and a median on her left, our client chose the lesser of two evils and was run off the road.

Car Accident With No Contact

We’d like to think that people are inherently good. If they cause a car accident but do not actually get involved in the crash themselves, drivers will often stop to take responsibility and see that everyone is okay—even if it means a hit on their insurance.
There are times when this is not the case. A driver may not see the damage they caused if they are being inattentive; they may not realize that they were the ones that caused the crash; or they may be fully aware that they caused the crash, but since there was no contact, they try to run.
In this case, the trucker did the right thing after running our client off the road, and we were able to maximize her compensation as though it were a standard truck accident.
