Family of Virginia Man Killed by Truck While Turning Into Driveway is Awarded $2.3 Million
A settlement of $2.3 million has been reached in a case in which a Virginia man suffered fatal injuries in a crash with a truck in a no passing zone.
Virginia Lawyers Weekly reported on how a 51-year-old man was killed on a two lane highway. He was driving a car that was in the process of making a left turn into a driveway.
A tractor-trailer hit the man’s car as the driver tried to pass it. Although the big rig driver had started the pass in a passing zone, the crash occurred in a no passing zone. The car driver died of his injuries.
Lawyers for both parties contested liability. The defense claimed the deceased driver failed to give a turn signal before his left turn.
A settlement of $2.3 million was reached in the subsequent wrongful death case in which the beneficiaries were the deceased man’s wife and his two adult sons.
The attorneys for the plaintiff were Irvin V. Cantor, Elliott M. Buckner and Stephanie E. Grana of Richmond in Virginia. All cases are different and unique and we cannot guarantee the same result in your case.
