In 2020 two commercial motor vehicles engaged in a near head on collision. They were travelling in different directions in a small county in South Carolina.
Each driver was alone in their vehicle. The plaintiff, who was represented by attorneys Randall Hood, Donovan Malloy and Gerald Malloy, suffered many injuries and ultimately died soon after the crash. The plaintiff was survived by a spouse and children. The defendant survived the crash with extensive injuries.
According to Hood, obtaining information from United States Department of Transportation was important to the case, and there was a day in the life video that helped illustrate the loss that the plaintiff’s family experienced.
This case settled for $19 million in September 2022.
Many details of this case have been withheld due to a confidentiality agreement.
