Our Toledo, Ohio truck accident attorneys were thrilled that a jury in Wood County awarded $1.25 million to a truck driver who suffered personal injury and had to have his leg amputated after a trucking accident.
On April 21, 2002, our client Sean McMahon, an over-the-road trucker, was parked late at night at the Stony Ridge truck stop in Wood County. He left his truck and observed a fight between one truck driver in the parking lot and another truck driver who was within his tractor-trailer. The truck driver behind the wheel lunged his truck forward, and knocked the other trucker to the ground. Our client noticed that downed trucker was in the path of the trailer and managed to push him to safety. Unfortunately, at the same time, the trailer ran over Mr. McMahon’s lower right leg. The trucking accident ultimately caused his leg amputation.
