$7.5 million settlement
The firm earned a $7.5 million settlement for the family of a motorcyclist who died after an accident with a truck driver who failed to yield to oncoming traffic. After investigating the accident, Bartimus Frickleton Robertson Rader discovered that the truck driver failed several road evaluations regarding yielding at intersections – the very issue that caused the accident – and that he twice failed his commercial driver’s license exam. The case, which involved six liability and damage experts, resolved after two mediations.
$4.1 million settlement
After nearly twenty months of contentious litigation, Mike Rader and Michelle Marvel resolved a commercial motor vehicle (eighteen-wheeler) crash case for $4,100,000.00. The trucking accident occurred in Jackson County, Missouri and resulted in the death of a 72-year-old retired man. He was struck by the eighteen-wheeler as he attempted to enter an intersection on his motorcycle. After much discovery, it was determined the trucker was undertrained and unqualified to operate the truck. This was uncovered along with evidence showing the trucking company failed to enforce its own safety policies.
