Auto Vs. Truck - $4,500,000

$4,500,000

In April 2017 Attorneys Arash Homampour and Scott Boyer settled a particularly tough Auto versus Truck case for $4.5 million against the City of Los Angeles.  We alleged that the City’s truck was illegally and dangerously stopped in the middle of the road. Having collided with the back of a semi-truck operated by the City’s Street Services, plaintiff incurred significant injuries resulting in great mental and physical pain and suffering.

The city contended that their employee had followed all the correct procedures for warning oncoming traffic of a stopped vehicle, including the fact that the semi-truck’s emergency lights had been activated before the collision occurred.  Additionally, the City argued that the plaintiff was driving in excess of the speed limit, contributing significantly to his injuries.

Through aggressive litigation the Homampour team were able to show that regardless of plaintiff’s excessive speed, the City employee had indeed negligently operated parked the semi-truck when delivering equipment to a city work project, resulting in the City settling before trial for $4.5 million.
