Our firm represented a young couple in their early twenties who were seriously injured when a tractor trailer traveling in the turn lane swerved to avoid a car pulling from a private driveway through stopped traffic. The 18 wheeler hit the couple head on. The wife suffered a fractured pelvis and injuries to her leg. The husband suffered bruising and cuts on his arms. Neither of the defendants made an offer to settle the claims of the injured parties, each arguing that the other was at fault. A trial was had in Memphis Shelby County Tennessee before a jury of 12 who unanimously returned a verdict of $140,000 for the injured couple.
