Interstate crash case settled

Comments Off

Our firm, Beasley Allen, has negotiated a settlement in a wrongful death arising out of an interstate highway crash that occurred in Baldwin County, Alabama. We representated the families of two ladies who were state employees traveling to an educational seminar in Mobile. While stopped in traffic due to a prior accident along with a number of cars, an 18-wheeler plowed into their car at a high rate of speed. The ladies in our car were killed instantly. The families filed suit against the trucking company which was based in Tennessee. This tragic case is just another example of how the trucking industry has to do a better job on safety. The amount of the settlement is confidential and there are a few non-monetary matters that have to be done before the settlement will be final. Cole Portis and Julia Beasley handled the case for the firm and did a very good job for our clients.
