Arnold & Itkin LLP filed a lawsuit today in Alleghany County, PA against FedEx Ground Package System, Inc. on behalf of an injured commercial driver. Arnold & Itkin LLP’s client was a victim of a hit-and-run accident in Loudon County, TN.
At the time of the accident, a FedEx Ground driver dangerously changed lanes, striking Arnold & Itkin LLP’s client and running his vehicle off the road. To compound matters, the FedEx Ground driver fled the scene despite clear evidence of an accident. In fact, the entire accident was caught on dash cam video.
Passenger vehicles are far from the only victims of reckless driving. Commercial drivers need to watch out for each other, and they need to take responsibility for themselves when they fail to keep the roads safe. The fact that the defendant chose to flee the scene and didn't ensure the well-being of our client magnifies the harm he caused.
Our firm believes in responsibility–and we believe that people should face the consequences of their recklessness. Arnold & Itkin LLP is proud to fight to hold dangerous trucking companies and drivers responsible, especially when they attempt to run from their negligent acts.
