$600,000 – Farming Accident

A self-employed 60 year old individual was traveling in an almond harvester approaching a stop sign. Behind him was a freightliner truck. The freightliner did not see the vehicle, due to impaired vision, thus resulting in hitting the harvester from behind. The almond harvester spun out of control, ultimately sending it into a nearby home, causing more damage. Luckily, no one was injured in the home but our claimant suffered a fractured foot and ankle leaving him unable to tend to his farm. This case settled for $600,000.
