Walterboro, SC -- Mr. Whetstone, with other counsel, represented a young man who was struck by a trailer which broke loose from a truck and crossed the interstate median striking Plaintiff's vehicle. The impact of the trailer caused the young man's seatbelt to release and he was rendered a quadriplegic as a result of his injuries. The case was settled against the car company, based on negligent seatbelt design, for $8.15 million, shortly prior to trial.
