Chavez v. Swift Trucking

Chavez v. Swift Trucking

Woman Settles with Trucking Company for $850,000

Maria Chavez, a 31-year-old lace cutter, was on the San Bernardino Freeway when her car was struck on the left side by the defendant's tractor-trailer. The force of the collision forced her vehicle down an embankment, where it split in half upon contact with a Eucalyptus tree. Ms. Chavez sustained a degloving injury of her calf and fractures of her right ankle and left foot.

Biren Law Group established that defendant's driver was speeding during the rainstorm and caused the accident by making an illegal and unsafe lane change. Extensive discovery further established that the trucking company had violated numerous trucking industry regulations by allowing its untrained driver to be driving during the extraordinarily heavy rainstorm.
