$1.9 Million Awarded In Tractor-Trailer Crash

Aug 3, 2005 | Buffalo News

William Sullivan, a self-employed Amherst maintenance company operator, was awarded $1.9 million by a Buffalo jury for injuries suffered when a tractor-trailer slammed into his pickup truck four years ago in the Town of Tonawanda.

After a three-week trial before State Supreme Court Justice Frederick J. Marshall, a jury deliberated for two days before ordering Werner Enterprises, based in Omaha, Neb., to pay him for the accident.

Attorneys said Sullivan, now 62, was southbound on Young Street when a Werner rig slammed into his vehicle, flipping it on its side, as the larger vehicle left a parking lot about 11:30 a.m. Feb. 3, 2001.

The Werner driver was ticketed for failing to yield the right of way.

Sullivan, owner operator of three maintenance company franchises, was working about 70 hours a week, but the knee and shoulder injuries he suffered limit him to about two hours of work daily, Schaffer said.
