They alleged that they would never pay a dime as their contention was the child walked out in front of the commercial driver. To determine if the case was meritorious, McIntyre Law hired a respected accident reconstruction and human factors expert. We then went about renting and purchasing clones of the vehicles that were involved in the accident. After depositions we placed replicas of the children, commercial driver and other witnesses at the scene to recreate the events of that day. What was demonstrated was that the driver of the commercial truck’s testimony did not conform to the facts of the case. The expert demonstrated through a reenactment that driver had ample opportunities to see the child next to the road. Even though the driver of the commercial vehicle was required to slow down and move off the edge of the road he did not thus causing the accident. The case was settled for a confidential amount that will provide for the child’s care and treatment for his injuries and also compensated the parents for income and allowed them to make improvements to their home to help meet the child’s needs.
