18-Wheeler driving on a Texas highway.BLF Lawyers Secure Win for North Texas Driver Hit by 18-Wheeler

A North Texas man was able to get justice after suffering from life-altering injuries in a wreck with an 18-wheeler, thanks to a settlement secured by our knowledgeable Texas truck wreck attorneys at The Button Law Firm.

In August 2019, a man was driving on Interstate 35 in Hill County near Hillsboro, Texas, when a distracted driver caused the driver of an 18-wheeler to lose control of the vehicle. The tractor-trailer crossed multiple lanes of traffic and even jumped cable barrier into oncoming traffic, before crashing into our client’s truck that was traveling on the opposite side of the highway.

Thankfully, our client contacted our experienced truck accident legal team to hold the negligent driver accountable for causing the accident. The settlement secured by our personal injury attorneys will give our client peace of mind by covering his existing and future medical treatments, lost wages, and diminished quality of life. 

Lasting Injuries Our Client Suffered as a Result of the Truck Wreck

Our client experienced significant, life-altering injuries to his head, neck, shoulders, back, hips, and wrists, in the accident. Upon impact, his head and body violently slammed forward and backward. Paramedics arrived on the scene and immediately transported him to the emergency room, where he was diagnosed with a closed head injury.

He continued to suffer from debilitating headaches and pain in his neck, shoulders, back, hips, and right leg. He sought medical attention from multiple specialists, who diagnosed him with serious injuries: a cervical sprain, thoracic sprain, lumbar sprain, head contusion, abdominal wall contusion, sleep disorder, and numbness. He followed the designated treatments but continued to live in great pain that prevented him from being able to work at his job as a UPS driver for 39 weeks.

Five months after the accident, our client continued to seek treatments for his pain, including a surgical procedure on his right sacroiliac joint fusion and ongoing, repeat lumbar injections. 

How The Settlement Secured by Our Experienced Texas Truck Wreck Attorneys Helped

Living with debilitating pain that requires ongoing medical treatment disrupted our client’s life. The accident deeply impacted his professional life and everyday tasks in his daily life.

His job as a UPS driver was physically demanding, which became difficult for him to do after the accident because he lost the full range of motion of his head and experienced sharp lower back pain that continued to radiate down his legs. In addition, our client is a devoted grandfather who enjoys lifting and playing with his young grandchildren. Following the accident, he is not able to experience those special moments without pain.

Thanks to the settlement secured by our team, our client was able to recoup damages that covered his current and future medical expenses, lost wages, and diminished quality of life, from this life-altering crash. He is now able to find closure and move forward with his life.
