A trucking company agreed to pay $2.6M to settle a lawsuit filed by an Easton, PA man who was injured in a multi-vehicle collision on the eastbound express lanes of Interstate 78 in Union Township, New Jersey.

William Wilder, of Easton, Pennsylvania, was 50 years old and employed by Sheridan Printing in Alpha, New Jersey when the accident occurred. He was on his way to make a delivery in New York City when a Mack Dump truck traveling in the westbound express lanes of I-78 crossed over the center median and guardrail, setting in motion a series of collisions that ultimately impacted Mr. Wilder’s vehicle, seriously injuring him. Two other drivers were killed in the accident and a fourth driver was injured.

Mr. Wilder suffered a fractured left femur, knee and elbow, a fractured right forearm, a fractured pelvis and a traumatic brain injury, among other serious and devastating injuries. He has been unable to work since the accident.

The Wilders were represented by John E. Keefe, Jr. of Keefe Law Firm. “The Wilders are in my thoughts and prayers, and I hope that this settlement gives them some peace of mind about the future as they move forward,”our attorney stated.

Keefe Law Firm headquarters is located at 170 Monmouth Street, Red Bank, NJ 07701.
