On January 21, 2009, a young college student was killed while driving on the highway in Maryland. A wheel and tire assembly came off of a crane truck owned by a county while it was being towed by a tow truck.
The wheel assembly that separated from the towed vehicle ultimately was knocked airborne by an oncoming tractor trailer and caused fatal injuries to the college student. We represented the student’s parents. The parties eventually settled the case for $1,975,000.
