Driver Hits Semi After Sudden Stop

Posted on Friday, February 8th, 2019

James Tennant slammed into the back of a semi-truck owned by Handi-House Mfg. after it stopped suddenly in the midst of a left-hand turn. Tennant sustained a traumatic brain injury with cognitive difficulties, disc herniations and spondylosis from the crash. Handi-House Mfg. said Tennant was at fault, and they would not assist with his medical costs. Tennant knew he needed a strong team to win the case, so he called Coker Law. Attorneys Howard Coker, Dan Iracki and Joel Harris fought to prove that the driver of the semi-truck did not have the proper knowledge or skills needed and created the conditions that caused the crash. Due to the Coker Law legal team’s aggressive efforts, Tennant received $450,000 to cover his medical costs.
