Austin personal injury attorney recovers $996,000 for crash victim
The Carlson Law Firm attorney, Robert Ranco, reached an agreement to settle for $498,000 for his client that was being rear-ended by a truck driver.
Ranco’s client was traveling east on South I-35 near Kyle, Texas when a tractor-trailer was driving behind the client. The driver of the tractor-trailer struck the car without warning, flipping the car and causing the driver and another passenger physical, mental and emotional damage.
After the car crash, the driver suffered from pain throughout the body making it difficult to move and even sleep. The victim had to have lumbar and cervical epidural steroid injections. The passenger also suffered from intense pain and loss of consciousness. Both victims will have to continue pain management, possibly for the rest of their lives.
Rear-end collisions are among the most common car crashes across the nation. They are commonly caused by distractions and defective vehicles. The struck vehicles are often stopped at a stop sign, stop light or in stopped traffic, while the rear-enders are often distracted by texting, radio or under the influence.
