Twigg v. Ryder Truck Rental - $1,077,000

Our client, a truck driver, was southbound on I-75 in a rain storm when he entered a foggy area. He collided with an overturned Waffle House truck which was blocking both the north-bound and south-bound lanes. Through investigation, it was revealed that the Waffle House truck had failed to stop at an Agricultural Inspection Station and was being chased by a police officer when it overturned. The driver had been on duty more than 15 hours, a direct violation of company policy and Federal regulations. Ultimately the case settled in our client’s favor, with a $1,077,000 settlement.
