A long-time operator for Chevron from Pasadena, Texas has just hired our law firm to handle his claims concerning a recent accident in which an 18-wheeler rear-ended his car.The 18-wheeler driver was on the job with Savage Services Corporation at the time of the crash.
His vehicle was rear-ended with such force that it was deemed a "total loss" by the insurance company and he was taken by ambulance to Memorial Hospital in Houston.
Some of the initial injuries included:
- Multiple discs in his spine have been injured
- Injured one of his elbows.
- Sustained a huge gash in his head that required stitches.
Since the accident, he has had to undergo continuous testing and treatment from both a neurologist as well as an orthopedic specialist.
AIG is the insurance company for the trucking company and truck driver. AIG has done absolutely nothing for our client, other than harass him about giving a recorded statement and signing various forms. AIG also tried to trick our client by playing many of the trucking insurance company tricks. Fortunately, our client didn't fall for any of these tricks, which could have really hurt his claims.
This crash was investigated by the Pasadena Police Department, and we have already obtained a copy of the police report. The investigating officer reported that the 18-wheeler driver for Savage Services Corporation is 100% at fault for this crash because he failed to control his speed. The officer also documented that our client sustained severe injuries in this crash.
We have filed this lawsuit in Houston, Texas, which seeks well in excess of $1,000,000. At the same time that our client is receiving medical treatment for his injuries, we are working up his case.
If you have any questions about this case, or about 18-wheeler lawsuits in general, feel free to give us a call.
