Our client was seriously injured when the vehicle he was traveling in was rear-ended by a tractor-trailer on the BQE expressway(or I-278). While the vehicle in which he was traveling did not have a scratch we proved that his injuries were in fact caused by the accident.
The deck was stacked against us from the start as the police report doubted whether the client was injured based on the fact that no damage resulted. The defendants even hired a biomechanical expert to say that it was physically impossible that the injuries resulted from the accident.
We proceeded to arbitration and recovered nearly half. Through diligent trial preparation and skilled advocacy at the Arbitration Hearing, we prevailed and established that each injury was caused by the accident and was permanent and debilitating.
Our office has handled numerous truck accidents and is familiar with the Federal motor vehicle safety standards that govern tractor trailers.
