10 Sep Linda Real, as personal representative of the Estate of Michael D. Real v. Cole Logging, et al.
Wilcox County Circuit Court Wrongful Death Logging Truck Settlement of $775,000
The firm represented Linda Real, widow of Michael Real in this wrongful death case. Mr. Real was operating his motorcycle stopped at an intersection waiting to make a left turn from Highway 41 onto Dallas County Road 38 when he was struck from behind by the logging tractor trailer operated by Carl Clancy and owned by Cole Logging. A witness testified that Mr. Real had more than ample time to complete his turn but discovery proved that Mr. Clancy was traveling above the speed limit, failed to keep the tractor trailer under sufficient control and had faulty brakes on the trailer. Recovery was obtained against Cole Logging and the driver Carl Clancy.
