Prince Glover Hayes Partner Bob Prince Settles Lawsuit Involving 18-Wheeler

Bob Prince settled a lawsuit filed in federal court involving an 18-wheeler that rear-ended his client on Interstate 59 in Sumter County, Alabama. His client suffered multiple injuries and incurred over $40,000.00 in medical bills.  The complaint alleged that the driver of the 18-wheeler was operating his vehicle in excess of the posted speed limit and as a result of this negligence and/or wantonness he collided with Bob’s client.  

Prince Glover Hayes investigator, Ken Swindle, hired an accident reconstruction expert to determine the speed of the 18-wheeler and gather other relevant facts that would show fault.  After eliciting written discovery from the defendant trucking company, a mediation took place.  Bob successfully presented his client’s case to the mediator and defense counsel and thereafter reached a satisfactory settlement.
