A family recently reached a settlement for injuries caused by a 2007 tractor trailer accident after seeking representation from a personal injury law firm in Texas.

Partner at The Carlson Law Firm, Edna Elizondo, represented a family injured in an 18 wheeler accident, helping them receive a $435K settlement.

A family of three, injured in a Texas 18 wheeler truck accident near Chappel Hill, in Washington County, recently received a settlement of $435,000 after being represented by The Carlson Law Firm (Cause No 2011-CI-00049). The suit was filed in the 150th Judicial District Court of Bexar County, Texas.

According to the Texas personal injury attorneys, the lawsuit stemmed from mounting medical costs endured by the family after their vehicle was struck from behind by a tractor trailer truck in April 2007.

Approaching the intersection of U.S. 290 and FM 1155 at a high rate of speed, the driver of the tractor trailer truck, David Lynn House, was unable to come to a stop, smashing into the back of the family’s vehicle and propelling them into a car stopped ahead of them. The truck driver was cited for failure to control speed, police said.

Garza Transport Co. Inc., out of Dallas, Texas, and an heir of the trucking company’s founder were also named in the suit, the truck accident attorneys said.

Back, spine, neck and shoulder injuries plagued the family, resulting in costly medical bills and pain that transformed their daily lives.

The Carlson Law Firm personal injury attorneys were pleased with the outcome of the case and the care achieved for their clients.

“The result obtained in this case was a collective accomplishment between the attorneys and staff involved in the case and clients who were willing to put in the time and effort to seek fairness.” Carlson Law Firm, Partner, Edna Elizondo said. “It was definitely a good result.”
