Over the Road Truck Driver VS Employer

Lou Benassi and co-counsel represented an over-the-road truck driver who was injured while making a delivery. The driver was impaled on a rusty hook negligently placed in the loading dock. Our law firm filed a workers’ compensation claim against the employer and the owner of the facility. The workers’ compensation case settled for $125,000 and the personal injury case settled during the jury trial, but prior to the verdict for an additional $75,000.
