$2 Million Settlement for Tractor Trailer Accident that Killed Two

October 18th, 2011 by Wapner Newman

Steven Wigrizer, truck accident attorney in Philadelphia and a partner with Wapner, Newman, Wigrizer & Brecher, settled a motor vehicle case that killed two people. The accident occurred when a tractor trailer crossed a medial divider and struck and killed Mr. Wigrizer’s clients. Both individuals died instantaneously in the crash, but Mr. Wigrizer was able to prove that the accident resulted from a display of aggressive and erratic driving entirely consistent with a psychiatric crisis which the defendant’s employer should have known about. It was Mr. Wigrizer’s position that the driver should have never been permitted to operate a truck, and that if the trucking company had acted with due diligence, then the accident could have been avoided.
