A Central Texas man, who was seriously injured when the driver of an 18 wheeler truck smashed into his vehicle in a head-on collision, was awarded a settlement of $875,000, The Carlson Law Firm announced.

Carlson Law Firm Attorney, Julie Purves was one of the firm's attorneys who advocated for a Central Texas man injured in a truck accident.

It's wonderful to work for a firm that has the resources and ability to help clients, who are seriously injured in 18-wheeler collisions, to receive their fair compensation and the treatment they need to recover from the injuries they endure.

The Texas 18 wheeler attorneys said the lawsuit (No. 245,880-C, 169th Judicial District Court) stemmed from their client’s growing medical care costs accompanying various injuries sustained in the Texas semi-truck accident.

On October 28, 2008, The Carlson Law Firm said their client was traveling westbound on highway 439, when he was struck by a Stampede Creek Transportation owned 18 wheeler truck, driven by Michael Edward Thornton. Following a vehicle ahead, too closely, the 18 wheeler truck driver, swerved into the opposite lane of traffic to avoid a rear-ending accident, according to court documents.

As a result of the tractor trailer truck accident in Belton, The Carlson Law Firm’s client endured back injuries, neck injuries, fractured bones and other serious injuries, creating mounting medical bills and causing excruciating pain, the firm said.

According to the Texas Department of Transportation (TDOT), more than 24,000 commercial vehicle involved crashes occurred in 2010, highlighting the prevalence of dangers associated with the climbing number commercial vehicles and trucks filling Texas interstates and highways.

“It is wonderful to work for a firm that has the resources and ability to help clients, who are seriously injured in 18-wheeler collisions, to receive their fair compensation and the treatment they need to recover from the injuries they endure,” said Carlson Law Firm Attorneys, Julie Purves.
