When “Mark” (not a real person) talked about the accident with friends and family, the question inevitably came up:how could he not have heard it coming? It was a fair question, and it haunted him. How could he have failed to hear a 25-foot, diesel-powered box truck careening towards him?
Mark had been walking back from a lunch break to his job at a machine shop, his thoughts on the weekend that lay ahead. In the next instant, he was off his feet, the world roaring around him in a kaleidoscope of sky and pavement, blinding pain lighting up his senses. He remembered sounds of shouting and little else until waking up in a hospital the next day, his right leg amputated above the knee.
The driver of the truck, which had been pulling out of a private depot as it crossed the sidewalk, told investigators that he never saw Mark. He later admitted that he should have sought help from a colleague to flag him out of the depot and ensure that the walkway was clear.
Mark, now fitted with a temporary prosthetic leg, faced an uncertain future as his family began struggling to make ends meet with long-term disability payments instead of his full paycheck. If Mark did eventually return to his job, his new disability likely would limit him to lighter duty, reducing his usefulness to the company. His attorney told him that any settlement could take months or even years to negotiate. Knowing that Mark needed cash flow help now, his attorney told him to contact USClaims.
