Ryan, Ryan & Landa Settles Seven Figure Trucking Case

Attorney Philip Ryan recently finalized settlement of a $2.575 million dollar trucking collision case.  The lawsuit, which was filed in Cook County, IL, sought recovery for a young woman who sustained catastrophic injuries when a semi-truck jack-knifed across traffic in a snow storm and the vehicle in which she was a passenger was caused to crash into it.

Attorney Ryan was able to successfully prove that the professional truck driver deviated from industry safety standards in negligently operating his vehicle at a speed too fast for conditions, and in negligently pulling his vehicle across traffic as opposed to steering it onto the roadway shoulder.

Attorney Ryan was also able to substantiate his client's catastrophic injuries by drawing upon the expert medical opinion testimony of her treating physicians.  This was vital in illustrating the client's profound injuries and achieving a full recovery for her.

This settlement constitutes the latest trucking collision recovery for Philip Ryan, who also recently recovered $4.5 million dollars for the estate of a father of four who was killed by a truck that ran off the road in Boone County, IL.
