After a lengthy and contentious litigation with significant expert witness preparation and reports, a $500,000 settlement in Bluffton, Indiana for Woman Killed When She Crossed Center-Line into Path of Oncoming Speeding Semi-Truck.

The settlement came in the second day of jury trial, after the truck driver was cross-examined on the witness stand by Attorney Jeff Shaw. (Many thanks to Attorney Jennifer McKibben of Fort Wayne, Indiana, for her fantastic legal work and expertise).
