PWMC represented the husband and surviving daughter of Judy Madere who was killed, along with her sister, daughter, and two grandchildren, in a fatal head-on collision with a large commercial tractor trailer. The defendants in the case included the trucking companies Schnitzer Industries, Inc., Schnitzer Steel Southeast, Inc., and the driver of the tractor trailer.
