Arnold & Itkin’s truck accident attorneys filed suit on behalf of a Marine and his family after they were struck by a commercial truck near Longview, Texas. The family’s vacation turned tragic when the defendants truck suddenly collided with them and forced their vehicle off the road.
Truck drivers have an obligation to operate their vehicles with safety placed as a number one priority. Because commercial trucks are large and dangerous, they must be handled with expert skill and constant awareness. A truck’s large size, excessive weight, and low maneuverability mean that drivers must always be aware of their surroundings, with no exceptions. Any lapse in responsibility puts the lives of other individuals on the road at risk—as seen during the terrifying event that our client and his family experienced.
Arnold & Itkin LLP will fight to hold those who are responsible for this accountable and reaffirm the importance of practicing safety on the road. The case was filed in Dallas County, Texas.
