Munley Law Announces $4 Million Settlement with Shipping Company Responsible for Selecting an Incompetent Carrier
Munley Law won a $4 million settlement for a client from a shipping company that selected an incompetent trucking company to transport its goods.
Munley Law represented a couple that was severely injured in a multi-vehicle accident caused by one of the trucking company’s tractor trailers. According to the complaint, the accident occurred in a construction zone when a tractor trailer was unable to stop because its brakes were not properly adjusted. The truck rear ended the couple, causing a multiple vehicle collision. The accident left the couple with life-altering injuries, including paraplegia and severe back injuries.
According to the complaint, the truck carried the mandatory minimum insurance of $750,000.
“This settlement will go a long way to help our clients recover from such a horrific accident,” said Marion Munley, lead counsel on the case. It also sends a clear message to shipping companies to do their due diligence before selecting a carrier.”
