$400,000 award for semi-truck crash victim

Michael J. Goldberg won a $400,000 award for a man in his 60s who was rear-ended by a truck on Interstate 80 in Bloom Township.  The case was hotly contested, as the Defendant truck driver claimed that the Plaintiff was weaving in and out of traffic and was the cause of the crash.  Michael J. Goldberg argued that the defendant truck driver failed to follow company handbook protocol, which created unsafe truck operating on behalf of the truck driver, which, in turn, caused the crash.  The Plaintiff sustained injuries to his neck and hands, requiring three surgeries.

Whiteside & Goldberg, Ltd. has also won numerous cases that were either settled or tried before a jury/arbitrator, which have resulted in millions of dollars in recoveries for the firm’s clients.
