$10.5 Million Verdict for Woman “Buried Alive” in Crash

Motor Vehicle Accident Case Results

A mother of two severely autistic boys was buried alive when her SUV collided with a dump truck carrying tons of sand. The driver of the dump truck swerved to avoid hitting another vehicle, causing the load of sand to shift and tip the vehicle over and onto the SUV. Eisenberg Rothweiler trial attorneys, Ken Rothweiler, Fred Eisenberg and Dan Sherry tried the case for the Walsh family against three defendants: the driver of the truck; the mining company that loaded the sand, and the driver who was creeping out onto the roadway which caused the dump truck to swerve. A high-low agreement was reached before verdict to provide a more speedy recovery of funds for the family of the deceased.
