A 32-year-old mother of a young son stopped her car on the shoulder of a highway to assist a stranded motorist. While standing outside of the disabled vehicle, a semi-truck negligently hit and killed her. The truck driver claimed he slowed down and tried to change lanes, but the traffic alongside him prevented him from doing so. We obtained the electronic readout of his driver’s trip log which demonstrated that he had not braked for the several miles before the accident. The case settled for $3.4 million.
