struck and killed by a passing truck driver on the side of I-95.
Read the Daily Business Review article on this story.
For the family of life-long tow truck driver "K.T.", a nightmare
that was once unfathomable became a reality in an instant.
Growing up, K.T.'s father had been a tow truck driver, and as a kid,
he dreamed of being just like dad – spending his days helping stranded
motorists get back on the road.
Tragically, in the early morning hours of June 18
th, 2014, K.T. was killed after being struck by a passing tractor-trailer
while he was helping a motorist in need who had broken down on a stretch
of I-95, in St. Augustine, Florida.
At the time of the collision, K.T. had his tow truck pulled to the side
of the southbound lane, just in front of the customer's disabled vehicle,
with his emergency signals and "antler" lights on and flashing.
Immediately following the collision, the driver of the tractor-trailer
can be overheard on the 911 call saying, "I didn't even seen
him [K.T.] standing there!" The driver failed to follow Florida's
"Move Over" Law, which requires drivers to change lanes to the
left when approaching an emergency vehicle with its lights on.
K.T. left behind a beloved wife and three young sons. The family hired
our law firm the day after the accident, and immediately, Mr. Goldenfarb
immersed himself in the matter. A $6.5 million settlement with the trucking
company's insurers was reached after Mr. Goldenfarb hired an expert
to reconstruct how the accident occurred. The settlement included guaranteed
funds for each of the three boys to pay for their educations.
We recognize that no amount of money could replace K.T. However, hopefully,
the recovery will give this family the peace of mind they need to try
to move on.
