Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers’ Trucking Wreck Settlements and Verdicts

Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers has a long record in obtaining large settlements for the families of people who were killed in trucking accidents and motorists who sustained very serious injuries.

No two cases are the same and we cannot guarantee a similar result in your case. However, our injury team takes trucking crashes very seriously and we have worked on large and complex cases across the states as far afield as Oklahoma. We are dedicated to fighting the trucking companies for your rights. We have also written The Best Book About Virginia Trucking Accidents.


Trucking Wreck Results in Virginia, North Carolina, and Beyond

1 – Woman Sustained Serious Injuries in Trucking Wreck in Gloucester County - $5 Million Settlement

Our client, a woman from Hampton, was involved in a head-on collision with a construction truck on an unmarked rural road in Gloucester County in Virginia.  She received very serious injuries including fractures to her ribs, liver laceration, a pelvic fracture, a fractured femur and right tibia. You can read more about this serious wreck here.

2 Passenger Died in Fiery Wreck on I-64 in Norfolk - $3.5 Million Settlement

A car was traveling slowly on the interstate after a suffering from a tire problem. It was rear-ended by a commercial truck. A male passenger died in the subsequent fire. We filed a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of his child. This tragic wreck illustrates how quickly things can go wrong on the interstate when commercial vehicles are involved in crashes.

3 Van Driver Was Killed by a Box Truck - $1.5 Million Settlement

The driver of a van was killed in Hampton Roads when he was rear-ended by a delivery truck. The box truck driver was found to be driving 10 mph over the speed limit. The family of the deceased driver hired Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers. Our attorneys found the at-fault driver lacked a valid CDL medical certificate at the time of the wreck and potentially suffered from the sleep disorder sleep apnea.

4 Woman Was Killed in Oklahoma Tractor-Trailer Accident - $800,000 Settlement

Jim Hurley was part of a legal team that represented the family of a woman who was mown down by an 18-wheeler as she was making a right turn on a highway in Oklahoma. Sadly, she lost her life. The trucker was found to be driving too fast for the weather conditions.

5 Truck Tire Separation Caused Crash with Severe Injuries to Motorist - $650,000 Jury Verdict

Most trucking wrecks are caused by inattentive or reckless truckers but sometimes an equipment failure can cause a crash. A trucking company or manufacturer can be held liable.  In a case that went to trial, a MACK truck with worn tires experienced a “sudden” tread separation and crashed into our client’s car.  The woman’s leg was broken in two places. Not only did the injury require the insertion of a metal rod, plate, and screws, but she was unable to return to work.

Trucking cases usually require considerable work and may cross state lines. At Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers, we have decades of experience in these complex cases. Please call us at (757) 455-0077 if you or a loved one has been hurt in a wreck caused by a trucker.
