$850,000.00 – Settlement by Mediation.

A married couple was seriously injured when a 16-year-old boy pulled out from a stop sign onto an Iowa highway. A semi-tractor-trailer hit the boy’s vehicle, then collided with the couple’s vehicle and another pickup truck. An accident reconstructionist found the truck driver was speeding at the time of the collision, rendering him liable for contributing fault pursuant to Iowa comparative fault statutes. Settlement was obtained from the auto insurance policy of the boy’s parents and the commercial fleet insurance coverage of the trucking company.
