18-Wheel Truck Turned Left In Front Of Oncoming Traffic

Mr. Kaylor's medical expenses were approximately $1 million with a lost income both past and future in the neighborhood of $800,000. Defendant claimed that the vehicle in which plaintiff was a passenger was traveling in excess of 75 mph and that the driver of that vehicle, who had only a $15,000 policy limit, was responsible in part, if not in whole, for the subject accident and Mr. Kaylor's injuries. Mr. Kaylor was left with significant orthopedic problems and was essentially determined to not be able to return to gainful employment. His head injury also resulted in mild brain trauma that affected his cognitive function. The matter settled at mediation after three days.
