Lawyers at Arnold & Itkin recently filed a lawsuit on behalf on a truck driver who was injured in a single vehicle accident on I-80 outside of Cheyenne, Wyoming. The driver was working as a trainee for Stevens Transport. While he was a passenger in the cab of a tractor trailer, the truck driver operating the tractor trailer lost control of the vehicle and caused it to roll over. During the accident, the trainee driver suffered multiple injuries including injuries to his head, neck, back, shoulder, and hip.
The lawsuit names Stevens Transport and the truck driver who was operating the vehicle as defendants. It claims that the driver was not maintaining an appropriate speed given the weather conditions and that Stevens did not properly train the driver to safely operate the tractor trailer.
The lawsuit was filed in Dallas County, Texas where Stevens Transport maintains its principal place of business.
