Panish Shea & Boyle attorneys Rahul Ravipudi and Robert Glassman obtained a $6,500,000 confidential settlement for the two minor children and friend of a southern California man who was killed after being struck on the highway by a courier truck whose driver had fallen asleep behind the wheel.

In the early morning hours of July 7, 2016, Plaintiff and his friend were standing outside of their vehicles on Interstate 5 and were attempting to add gasoline to one of their vehicles when a semi-truck drifted onto the right shoulder and collided with the two men. One man suffered major blunt force trauma and was later pronounced dead while the Plaintiff was transported by ambulance to a nearby hospital for severe injuries as well as emotional and mental distress after witnessing the death of his friend.

The Plaintiffs were also represented in the case by Martin Taleisnik of Sawl Law Group.
