$5 Million Settlement over Industrial Incident
Hodgson v. JVR Trucking, LLC, et al. | Mobile County, Alabama | Case No. 02-CV-2012-902852
The morning that a week-long trial was set to begin, the attorneys of Cunningham Bounds finalized a $5 million settlement for the family of man who was crushed to death when two high-density polyethylene pipes, weighing nearly 1-ton, rolled off a flatbed trailer during the unloading process. The lawsuit alleged that Mr. Hodgson died because industry pipe-loading standards and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations were not followed.
