Tom Foley III was the lead attorney for the Foley Law Firm team in a Monroe County wrongful death case which settled in 2017 for over $4 million. The case was filed in the Monroe County Court of Common Pleas, and arose from a catastrophic collision in a highway construction work zone. A construction dump truck negligently pulled out from a median crossover on Interstate 80 in Pocono Township, Monroe County, Pennsylvania in front of a private passenger van, causing the van to violently rear-end the dump truck, killing the passenger van’s driver. On behalf of the widow of the van driver, Tom and his firm aggressively and successfully pursued the lawsuit not only against the dump truck driver for bad driving, but against the highway construction company for poor construction traffic management.

Tom also was lead attorney for the Foley Law Firm team’s 2019 case resulting in the 4th highest jury verdict in Pennsylvania in a motor vehicle accident (it was the highest such verdict in Northeastern Pennsylvania in 2019.). That case filed in the Monroe County Court of Common Pleas yielded a jury verdict of over $1 million for a pedestrian seriously injured in a crash by an out of control SUV in a supermarket parking lot in Blakeslee, Monroe County, Pennsylvania. He and the Foley Law Firm team also obtained a separate settlement in that same case, just before jury selection, for over $500,000 for another pedestrian injured in the same accident.
