"It was a long road to justice, but we were empowered with the truth. No amount of money can undo the past tragedy, but the family can now focus on the future."
ATLANTA, GA, January 31, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The case involved the death of a 32-year-old Atlanta-area mother and injuries to two of her passengers. The collision happened in January 2020 on a major highway south of Atlanta. Without warning, a tractor-trailer driver slammed on the brakes, causing the truck to jack-knife and swerve across three lanes of traffic. The young mother tried to avoid the collision but struck the truck and another car. She died within a few minutes of the crash and the surviving passengers were rushed to two different emergency rooms, where they were treated for non-surgical injuries to their backs.
The tractor-trailer company and the truck driver denied any wrongdoing claiming the crash was a result of the young mother's negligence as well as a mechanical malfunction in the tractor that they argued had caused the truck's brakes to activate.
Mr. Tobin traveled around the country tracking down eyewitnesses to the crash. Those witnesses refuted the accident report's conclusion that the wreck was caused by the young mother. Armed with key witnesses in Minnesota, Florida, and Georgia, Mr. Tobin felt confident he could challenge the GSP report that blamed his client for causing the crash and her own death.
Through the help of Cannella Snyder LLC as co-counsel, it became clear that the tractor-trailer driver's negligence caused the deadly crash. After a motions hearing, the tractor-trailer company agreed to settle the case for a total of $22,700,000.00.
