$4.2 Million Verdict in Trucking Case versus R&L Carriers
Trial lawyers Ryan Zehl and Kevin Haynes received a $4.2 Million verdict after a 5 week trial against R&L Carriers, one of the largest privately owned trucking companies in the country.
Prior to trial, R&L refused to offer more than $150,000 to settle the case.
The accident occurred on Interstate 20, just outside of Dallas, Texas. R&L’s driver rear-ended our client on the highway at over 60 mph, causing our client’s vehicle to flip and our client to seriously injure her head and lower back. At trial, R&L blamed our client for the collision, claiming that she cut in front of the R&L driver causing him to hit her.
