Canton, Georgia personal injury lawyers represented the Plaintiff on an auto negligence wrongful death theory.

Jarvis Nance Sr., owner of Nance Truckin LLC of Powder Springs, Georgia, was struck and killed around 5:40 a.m. on Aug. 17, 2017, near the Camp Creek Parkway, after exiting his 2007 International 9400 tractor. Investigators who arrived at the scene after the crash stated Nance was forced to brake suddenly and steer his tractor into the emergency lane, striking the concrete median, on southbound Interstate 285.

Phillip Taylor, who was driving a 2009 GMC Sierra C1500 truck owned by Highridge Partners of Canton, Georgia, told investigators with the Georgia State Patrol’s Specialized Collision Reconstruction Team, that Joachim, who was driving a white tractor-trailer for Schneider, swerved across multiple lanes of traffic and into Taylor’s lane, forcing him into the left lane and onto the shoulder where he struck and killed Nance, who was a father of three.


Outcome: Plaintiffs' verdict for $47 million.
