R. Sadler Bailey Achieves $600,000 for Client Injured in a Tractor-Trailer Collision

R. Sadler Bailey Achieves $600,000 for Client Injured in a Tractor-Trailer CollisionWhen you have been in a serious commercial truck accident, you need an attorney who will fight aggressively and effectively on your behalf. Firm founder R. Sadler Bailey proves that once again, choosing the right attorney can mean the difference between a lifetime of suffering, and protecting your family and your future.

The case involved a tractor-trailer collision that occurred on October 31, 2013, on Interstate 40, near mile marker 64, near the City of Brownsville, TN. Our client, a truck driver himself, was seriously injured in the crash. On March 9, 2016, a Haywood County, TN jury returned a $600,000 verdict in favor of our client. This amount is five times more than the insurance company’s final offer to our client, of $125,000. To further support how deserving our client was, and how well R. Sadler Bailey argued his case, it took the jury a mere 40 minutes to reach a verdict.

Truck crashes lead to serious, often permanent injuries

All auto accidents should be taken seriously, but truck crashes in particular can be devastating. Our client suffered broken ribs, a compression fracture in the spine, and an injury to his shoulder. He now suffers pain in his shoulder and his back. The injuries left hum unable to work for 6 weeks. He sought medical treatment and did return to work as a truck driver, but he still experiences constant, daily pain in his shoulder and back. Because of this, the chances are very good that he will have to retire sooner than expected. His doctor testified that he would require surgery to alleviate some of the pain and shoulder disfigurement, but that it would only provide partial relief.

The constant pain and suffering is one thing, but our client never anticipated an early retirement. Not only did he have mounting medical bills and no income, but he was in jeopardy of losing whatever income he had anticipated earning in the years to come.

This is why you want a fighter like R. Sadler Bailey on your side after you have been hurt in a truck collision. Bailey & Greer, PLLC has always advocated on behalf of the injured, and striven to obtain verdicts and settlements that will make a real difference in the lives of the people we help.

Congratulations, R. Sadler Bailey, on this momentous win for your client!
