18-WHEELER REAR-END COLLISION IN ROUND ROCK, TEXAS
Our clients were traveling eastbound in the left lane of traffic on Louis Henna Boulevard in Round Rock, Texas. As they approached the intersection with AW Grimes Boulevard, the traffic light turned red and they began to slow and come to stop.
At the same time, a driver operating an 18-wheeler in the course and scope of his employment was driving in the lane to the left to our clients. As his traffic lane ended, the other driver attempted to merge behind our clients and rear-ended them.
As a result of the collision, our clients suffered extensive bodily injuries, including spinal disc herniations that required surgery for one of our clients. Our attorney argued that our client’s injuries were the direct result of the negligent actions of the 18-wheeler driver, including:
- maintaining an unsafe distance from other vehicles;
- keeping an improper lookout;
- traveling at an unreasonable speed given the circumstances;
- making an untimely and improper application of his brakes;
- exhibiting inadequate driver attention;
- driving distracted;
- taking improper evasive actions to avoid the collision;
- fleeing the scene of a wreck;
- failing to stop and render aid; and
- choosing to violate safety rules.
This case settled in litigation, and our clients received compensation for the following:
- Past Medical Expenses;
- Future Medical Damages;
- Pain and suffering;
- Future Pain and Impairment; and
A Message from M.G.:
‘We were in an accident with a semi-truck and hurt, after dealing with another lawyer we hired Zinda Law group. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! The team we had was excellent, I can’t say enough good things about Mara Havis and Jason Aldridge. Every call was answered, every need addressed and we were kept informed the entire time.
When we had questions they were answered in plain English and explained to us
All of their staff are polite, professional and actually care about you as a person.
They built a relationship with us to the point they ask about people by names.
I would tell anyone who has been in an accident that needs a group of top level attorneys to help represent them to contact Zinda Law Group.'M.G.
