A private road may only be open to certain drivers, but when it is inadequately designed and constructed, danger isn’t choosy. Our client, a 71-year-old truck driver, suffered a skull fracture
— resulting in hospitalization, rehabilitation, and an enormous workman’s compensation lien — in a 2005 accident on a private road used by contractors hauling fill material to a construction site.
The road had no shoulder or recovery area, so when the unbelted driver momentarily drove off the paved surface and tried to steer back onto it, the fully loaded dump truck flipped onto its side, resulting in his severe injuries. Working with our career-long colleagues at The Wolfson Law Firm, we were pleased to secure a confidential settlement at mediation — for an amount adequate to resolve the lien and result in a recovery for our client.
