Personal Injury – Trucking Injury Case Settles for Just Shy of A Million Dollars

As we previously reported, the Defendants in our truck injury case were held accountable for spoliation of evidence. Sanctions imposed prohibited them from using their original expert and both faced the prospect of an adverse jury instruction against them for the spoliation. After a sizable settlement from one of the defendants, the second defendant has now caved in and settled as well. The total combined settlement was just shy of a million dollars. Trial had been scheduled for March 27, 2012 and will now be taken off the trial docket.
