Personal Injuries Caused by Negligent Driver Result in Large Settlement

Monday, October 12, 2020

A simple car ride, an easy trip down the interstate, can result in a nightmare of ambulances, hospitals, and rehabilitation. A car accident where you are simply at the wrong place at the wrong time is one of the worst things that can happen to a person and their loved ones, at the Law Offices of J. Jeffrey Herman, our Ventura County personal injury lawyers, want to discuss a personal injury that occurred here in Ventura—a single mother, a victim of a horrible car accident.

What happened in this Ventura personal injury?

Recently Peterbilt box truck and a pickup truck collided. The collision sent the pickup truck over the divider, crashing on Dawn Diaz’s vehicle, crushing her. As a result of her injuries, she was in a coma for two months. Diaz was unable to take care of her daughter and lost custody of her. Both drivers were found to be responsible for the injury.

It was discovered that Sugar Transport, the owner of the box truck, never supplied the driver with a training manual or gave him the required safety training. Diaz was awarded a $22.5 million settlement, one of the largest in Ventura County history. This money will go a long way to restoring Diaz to her former self after so much was taken from her.
