A local East Texas lady from Palestine, Texas has recently been awarded a $1.6 million verdict in a personal injury suit against a trucking company named TQT, LLC. The driver of the 18-wheeler reportedly ran a traffic light while turning and crushed the Plaintiff’s vehicle, causing severe and lifelong injuries.
