"This man who was a pillar of his community and a father of three young kids was taken too soon."
SALUDA, S.C. (PRWEB) March 02, 2020
Thousands of motorists die as a result of crashes with large trucks each year. McWhirter, Bellinger & Associates has secured a settlement for the family of one such victim who was killed by a tractor-trailer in Saluda, SC. This comes despite the other side’s insurance company denying liability for the fatal crash.
McWhirter, Bellinger & Associates attorney Melissa Mosier recently helped the family of the victim receive a $975,000 wrongful death settlement against the trucking company’s insurer, after her client was killed while driving to a grocery store near his home.
The driver of the semi-truck alleged that the 45-year-old victim suddenly made a left-hand turn and therefore left him with no choice but to enter the wrong lane on the highway in an attempt to avoid the vehicle. However, the victim’s family chose to hire McWhirter, Bellinger & Associates to dig deeper into what happened.
The case was filed in the US District Court of the Anderson Division in South Carolina under case number 8:19:CV-00237-HMH but was settled outside of court, with the trucking company’s insurance company paying $975,000 for the victim’s wrongful death.
Mosier explained that it was extremely important for her and her law firm to take on this particular case.
“This man who was a pillar of his community and a father of three young kids was taken too soon," said Mosier.
