Construction Company Pays $1.8 Million Injury Settlement For Serious Trucking Accident

trucking accident settlement $1.8 Million DollarsElodia Salgado was driving her three foster children to the daycare center where she also worked as a cook when her Nissan Quest minivan was struck by a Quigg Brothers constrution company dump truck at the intersection of West Reynolds Road and North Pearl Street in Centralia, WA.

Salgado and the children were trapped inside the crushed vehicle.  First responders used the jaws-of-life rescue her and the children before transporting them to Providence Medical Center for emergency medical treatment.

Salgado was then airlifted to Harborview Medical center where she required emergency surgery.  She suffered a fractured left arm and left leg. 

Law enforcement investigation confirmed that the Quigg Bros employee that was driving the truck was at fault for the accident.  

In March 2018 Salgado’s attorney Chris Davis of Davis Law Group in Seattle filed a lawsuit in King County Superior Court against Quigg and the at-fault driver.  The settlement agreement comes just weeks before the case was set to go to trial.
