Michael Leizerman received a jury verdict of $16 million this week on behalf of the estate of a young woman who was killed on I-75 near Cincinnati, Ohio. The case centered around the poor construction protocols that permitted dump trucks to enter the fast lane of I-75 in the middle of the night with inadequate warning. On October 17, 2009, a dump truck pulled out and was rear-ended by a car occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Poe.
The trial was held before Judge Flannery in Lebanon, Ohio from October 9 to October 16. Much of the argument centered around alternative construction and traffic methods and warnings that should and could have been used to protect the public driving on the interstate.
Michael Leizerman handles truck accident litigation across the country on behalf of injured people and their families.
