Colorado Semi Accident
Making Insurance Pay for Suffering and Barbie Dolls
John Doe and his family were traveling cross-country to their new home in Colorado when they were slammed into by a semi-truck with a driver who had been behind the wheel way too long. The crash tore the Does’ car apart, scattering the five of them and their possessions. The youngest child was helicoptered to Denver for emergency care, and the rest of the family was badly injured. The Does arrived in Denver with only the clothes on their backs. The children became upset that they didn’t have their Barbie dolls, so the father drove back to the far corner of Colorado to retrieve the dolls from the salvage yard. Dianne Sawaya made the trucking company’s insurer understand why the Does deserved significant compensation for the suffering their negligent driver put them through.
