An independent owner operator truck driver was permanently injured when a crane operator lost control of a fabricated concrete beam and negligently swung the beam at the truck driver. Since then the truck driver has undergone four surgeries and has been unable to return to work.

Meshbesher & Spence attorneys, John Sheehy & Pamela Spaulding represented the truck driver. At trial, the jury awarded the truck driver compensation to cover past and future health care expenses, lost wages, future earning capacity and compensation for pain and suffering.

Verdict: $7.87 million
