Firm News

December 2014
Bekkerman Law Offices, LLC is proud to announce a $4.5 million dollar settlement on behalf of two women seriously injured as a result of being struck by a driver operating a semi-truck in rural Ohio on behalf of a national trucking company. The crash occurred overnight while the women were on their way back to Chicago from a road trip. The defendant truck driver denied ever seeing victims' car before impact. Both women, an aunt and her niece, sustained significant injuries. The aunt, 70 years old, sustained multiple fractures of her jaw, mouth and hip, requiring oral surgery, extensive dental work and jaw therapy, and prolonged hospitalization. She may require a future hip surgery in the future. The niece, a 37 year old, was previously on disability due to an underlying pre-existing neurological condition that required a ventricular shunt to be placed into her spine and brain. The shunt fractured in this crash, requiring 4 revision surgeries. Her neurosurgeons testified that while the shunt was properly repaired, the woman would have prolonged permanent consequences from the crash, including the need for possible future spine surgery. Bekkerman Law Offices was able to file and keep the case in the Northern District of Illinois Federal Court under diversity jurisdiction. Through retained experts, including an accident reconstructionist, Plaintiffs were able to confirm the fault of the truck driver, and rule out any comparative fault on the driver (niece). A thorough investigation by Bekkerman Law Offices into the driver revealed a history of speeding tickets, reckless conduct, and a DUI and failed drug test, all while working for the national carrier. Through a retained safety expert, Bekkerman Law Offices was able to plead willful and wanton entrustment to set up an award of potential punitive damages at trial.
