Cochran v Interstate
Not all Tractor Trailer operators are careless. In this matter, my Firm represented a driver who in an effort to avoid a collision with a much smaller passenger car, wound up losing control of his vehicle while taking emergency evasive action on the highway. Cochran took a substantial loss on his trailer damage, lost wages while out of work and unpaid medical bills. Demand for settlement exceeded $200,000 and the case ultimately settled at pretrial.(1999, New London superior Court).
