Army Captain Receives Settlement from National Trucking Company After Major Highway Accident
Temple, TX - VB Attorneys recently obtained a significant settlement on behalf of clients Jarrod and Elizabeth McClendon after the couple was injured when their vehicle was struck by an 18-wheeler.
The McClendons' ordeal began in April of 2021, when their vehicle was struck by an 18-wheeler. The collision caused their car to spin out into the median and nearly pushed them off of the freeway entirely. The truck driver initially claimed the accident occurred due to a sudden sneeze. But, crucial evidence inside the cab, an audio recording, revealed that the accident happened because of negligence, not just a sneeze.
Injuries and Recovery
The accident left Jarrod with a serious knee injury that required surgery, altering the course of his life. He decided to voluntarily leave the military, feeling that he could no longer keep up with the demands of his service. Meanwhile, Elizabeth experienced physical discomfort and faced the emotional trauma of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Both Jarrod and Elizabeth began their journey to recovery, facing challenges and setbacks along the way. They both made significant strides towards healing and rebuilding their lives.
