The Nance Cacciatore law firm takes great pride in having taken part in many notable cases over the decades. In one such example, Nance Cacciatore attorney Jack Hamilton obtained a $2 million recovery for a young man who, as a pedestrian, had been struck by a tractor-trailer on I-95. The plaintiff and his father had stopped along the side of the highway to remove a ladder that had fallen off another vehicle, as they thought that it represented a safety hazard. While the rest of the vehicles on the highway slowed, the defendant trucker did not. The plaintiff’s attorneys hired a truck driving expert to show that the truck driver should have had a clear view of sight from his lofty position in the cab and should have been able to avoid the plaintiff in the roadway.
Unfortunately, the truck ran directly into the young man causing serious and permanent bodily injury and brain damage. Attorney Hamilton hired 10 separate damage witnesses to evaluate the injured plaintiff and testify at trial. The trucking company originally denied liability but on the eve of trial paid $2 million to settle. Most of the money was placed into a structured settlement which will provide the plaintiff with benefits for the rest of his life. Our law firm is well acquainted with making legal history, and we look forward to more opportunities in the future.
