An Alabama man is now paralyzed after the semi-truck he was operating overturned on Interstate 10.
He recently won a $14 million truck accident lawsuit against the company that serviced his rig several days before the wreck.
The Mobile man might have received as much as $19 million following the two-week trial. However, he and the defense struck a deal during jury deliberations. The deal was that even if plaintiff lost the case, defense would still pay $2 million. However, if plaintiff won, the most defense would pay was $14 million. Both sides also agreed there would be no appeal.
