Virginia Tractor Trailer Accident Case Settles for $1.37 Million

The driver of the Dodge Caravan stopped his car on Interstate 81, the Virginia portion, because of snowy conditions. Another car was disabled in the left lane. A Star Transport tractor Trailer swerved to avoid the disable car and struck the Caravan. The driver and his passenger were outside the van but could not escape and were killed in the collision. This tragedy resulted in a lawsuit against the truck driver and the truck owner. The case recently settled for $1.37 million. Is the settlement enough? What is the value of two lives, a father and son? Interestingly, the father's estate received $900,000, while the son's estate received only $437,000. This case highlights the need for experienced counsel who can explore all theories of recovery against the trucking company and driver and who can determine all the insurance coverage that is available.
