Pope McGlamry, a prominent Georgia law firm specializing in civil litigation, has successfully settled a wrongful death action arising out of a tractor trailer accident in Dothan, Alabama.On November 13, 2008, PMKM&N’s client was traveling east on U.S. Highway 84 in Houston County, Alabama, in dark and rainy conditions, when a semi tractor and trailer pulled out in front of her. In addition to failing to yield, the semi tractor and trailer did not have proper side or rear lighting. The client suffered catastrophic injuries, which led to her untimely death on Christmas Eve.
PMKM&N was hired to investigate potential claims arising from this accident, and a lawsuit relating to the client’s personal injuries, later amended to include the claim for wrongful death, was filed in the Circuit Court of Houston County, Alabama. Following discovery, PMKM&N successfully settled the suit for an undisclosed sum before trial.
