The Estate of Bradley Stockton, Jr. vs. R&M Transportation Inc., et al. U.S. Federal District Court No. CV 08-0663-CG-C
On August 7, 2008 a truck driver for the Defendant failed to yield the right of way as he was attempting to make a left turn from Theodore-Dawes Road northbound into a private driveway. Bradley G. Stockton, Jr. was traveling southbound on Theodore-Dawes Road on a motorcycle and, because of the Defendant’s failure to yield the right of way as he was making a left turn, the motorcycle of Bradley G. Stockton, Jr. struck the Defendant’s vehicle. Stockton was killed as a result of the collision. M&W was retained by the Administrator of the Stockton Estate to pursue a wrongful death action against R&M Transportation Inc. on behalf of Stocton's two minor children. A lawsuit was filed in Federal Court and an $800,000.00 settlement was reached at mediation. Mark Wolfe was lead counsel on the case.
