Truck Driver Injury
Brett Sherrod – Matt’s team is incredible
Brett Sherrod suffered a broken back when an 18-wheeler hauling frozen French fries lost control and crossed the center line, hitting him head-on. Even after surgery, Brett was never able to return to the level of activity he enjoyed before the crash.
Not only did the insurance company for the semi refuse to pay Brett for his injuries, they treated him like a criminal, spying on him and his family, and accusing him of exaggerating his injuries.
Brett called us from his hospital bed, and we were there with him within hours. We took on the insurance company and let them know we were prepared to go to trial if they didn’t hand over their $1 million policy limits. With the coordinated efforts of our team, including co-counsel Karen Koehler and her amazing staff, we assembled a team of expert witnesses and got to within a month of trial before the insurance company finally relented and agreed to pay its limits.
Brett will always have residual pain, numbness, and functional limitations, not to mention the emotional trauma of going through this experience., but the money will allow him to move forward with his life. We are proud to have represented Brett, and we’re even more proud to call him a friend.
