Romanucci & Blandin secures $750,000 settlement for a man injured in trucking accident

February 13, 2023

CHICAGO (February 13, 2023) – Romanucci & Blandin, LLC announces the $750,000 settlement on behalf of a man rear-ended by an on-duty commercial trucker in August of 2018. The man, 38-year-old Stan Efimov, was traveling on Interstate 65 in Indiana when Davronbek Rakhimdkanov, on his first assignment for STL Truckers, LLC, rear-ended Mr. Efimov, causing significant injuries. The settlement was secured by Senior Attorney Michael R. Grieco, who proved that Mr. Rakhimdkanov had been operating his vehicle at the direction of STL Truckers without the proper training.

The case, filed in 2018 in White County, Indiana, was resolved this year by Senior Attorney Michael R. Grieco.

“It is clear that STL Truckers was prioritizing profits over safety when they put Mr. Rakhimdkanov on the road without proper training,” said Senior Attorney Michael R. Grieco. “These commercial trucks can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, and without proper operational training can be deadly. This settlement should and will send a message of accountability to trucking companies across the country.”
