  • Recovery for Injured Driver of Car Hit by a 33,000lb Diesel Truck

    Case Summary:

    Our client was driving his car when a 33,000lb, 26-foot long diesel truck illegally turned in front of his vehicle causing a collision.

    Our client suffered numerous devastating injuries, including: a collapsed lung, facial trauma, fractured hand and fractures of his spine. After surgery, our client was left totally disabled and unable to work.

    Philadelphia car accident lawyer Richard K. Washington, Jr., a partner at Galfand Berger, LLP, coordinated a thorough reconstruction of the collision and determined that the driver of the diesel truck failed to yield the right-of “way to our client” vehicle.


    When presented with Mr. Washington’s evidence and expert conclusions, this matter resolved on the eve of trial for a confidential six-figure amount.

    Galfand Berger has been representing catastrophically injured clients and their families for over 65 years and has a long history of raising the bar for obtaining verdicts and settlements in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
