Jonathan Spigel Obtains Mid-Six-Figure Subrogation Recovery for Clients

Jonathan Spigel recently recovered a mid-six-figure settlement for a trucking company and two insurance carrier clients who sought property damage and workers’ compensation benefits-related damages in a wrongful death case.  The client trucking company’s driver was operating a gasoline tanker trailer (filled almost to its 9,200-gallon capacity) on a US highway that was under construction.  A pickup truck driver ran a stop sign and collided with the tanker.  There was also an uncovered one-way sign in what had become a temporary two-way construction zone.  Defendants sued included the Texas Department of Transportation, its general contractor, and a highway signage subcontractor. 

Jonathan is a Shareholder with Cowles and Thompson and Section Head of the firm’s Tort Litigation practice.
