Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 09, 2015
Shiver Hamilton recently obtained a significant confidential settlement in a tractor-trailer case alleging wrongful death wreck case arising out of Augusta Georgia.
According to the lawsuit that was filed in Richmond County State Court, in March 2013, a delivery driver backed a large commercial vehicle into another vehicle in the back alley of the local hospital. Plaintiffs claimed a passenger in the other vehicle suffered a back injury that required medical treatment and eventually surgery. Plaintiff alleged that the passenger died as a result of the surgery. In the complaint, Shiver Hamilton alleged that the commercial driver was responsible for the alleged wrongful death under Georgia law because the treatment was made necessary by the commercial driver’s negligence.
Shiver Hamilton took the sworn deposition of the commercial driver who testified that, had he been more careful, he could've avoided the collision. Shortly after the deposition, the case settled for a confidential amount.
