$8.6 Million Settlement for Trucking Accident: Rodriguez vs. Doe Trucking

truck accident in SylmarOn April 17, 2015, the Defendant was transporting produce in a tractor-trailer combination on the 210 freeway in Sylmar, California, when Defendant’s vehicle lost control and veered to the right, down a grass embankment, and down the Paxton St. freeway offramp.  Tragically, the truck struck and killed Jorge Louis Garcia and injured multiple other bystanders.  Mr. Garcia was survived by his wife Brenda Rodriguez, and their four children.

The trucking company did not have adequate insurance to cover the multiple claims against it.  However, utilizing the law requiring that multiple other motor carriers in the chain of distribution had a non-delegable duty to transport the subject load safely, GBW was able to obtain a full recovery in this tragedy for the Rodriguez family.
