Werner Transportation Trucker Crashes on Interstate 80: Confidential Settlement

On a snowy day on Interstate 80, winter “white-out” conditions were making travel extremely dangerous. A Werner Transportation tractor-trailer was just a few miles behind Jerry Whitesides, traveling slowly on the snowy roads, but the Werner trucker was gaining ground fast. Unbeknownst to Jerry, or the other drivers on the road that day, Werner’s purported professional driver was a student trainee who had never been trained to drive in snow. The road conditions continued to worsen and Jerry slowed his truck to a crawl. The Werner trainee, with his trainer asleep in the back, entered the white out traveling over 50 mph. Unable to stop or control his vehicle, the Werner truck slammed into Jerry’s vehicle causing Jerry to suffer severe neck and lower spine injuries. After several surgeries, and despite the best efforts of his doctors, Jerry was unable to return to work. We represented Mr. Whitesides against the trucking company responsible for the trucking accident on interstate-80 (I-80) in Wyoming. The case settled for a confidential amount.
