Dump Truck Crash; $1,000,000 settlement for Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys

Congratulations to our Attorney Richard “Richie” Zimmerman, III on the $1,000,000 settlement for a dump truck accident case.

The Plaintiff, a 47 year old truck driver, was operating his vehicle on LA 1 in Iberville Parish when he was rear-ended by the defendant’s dump truck.

As a result of the crash, the Plaintiff suffered herniated discs in his neck and back.  Plaintiff failed at conservative treatment of his neck injuries and therefore underwent a 2 level cervical fusion.  The neck surgery was successful; however, Plaintiff’s treating physician recommended that he undergo lumbar surgery.

Prior to this surgery, Plaintiff served the defendants with an offer of judgment for their $1,000,000.00 policy limit.  The defendants accepted the offer.  Plaintiff’s past medical expenses totaled approximately $136,000.

Hodge v. Roche, et al  No. 071719, 18th JDC, 2/13

Way to go Richie!
