Elderly Woman Survives 18-Wheeler Wreck After Environmental Waste Drum Flies Into Her Vehicle
On June 24, 2003, George Kennedy and his wife Betty, 78 years old were driving their son home from the hospital where he had recently undergone ophthalmologic surgery. Mrs. Kennedy was seated in the back seat of the family’s Lincoln sedan.
Traffic was heavy on Interstate 10, as it perpetually is. As Mr. Kennedy slowed to a stop, a Living Earth Technology waste disposal truck violently collided with the Kennedy vehicle. As the crash occurred, a 55-gallon drum of environmental waste flew into the Kennedy’s trunk. The waste initially caught fire, but quickly dissipated.
Seated in the back seat, Mrs. Kennedy bore the brunt of the impact. She suffered multiple non-displaced vertebral fractures at C3 and C4, resulting in permanent neurological loss. Fortunately, she did not lose all sensation in her arms.
Mrs. Kennedy incurred over $180,000.00 in medical expenses and will require lifelong neurological follow-ups. Tony Denena was contacted by the family and quickly secured the evidence. After suit was filed, the attorneys at Denena & Points, P.C. were able to negotiate a confidential settlement with Living Earth Technology.
