Arnold & Itkin recently filed a case on behalf of a man whose life has been harmed as a result of the negligent driver of an 18-wheeler. The defendant's driver made an unsafe lane change and struck our client, leaving him seriously injured. Because our client was struck by a driver who made an unsafe lane change, he has now suffered serious back and shoulder injuries that have already required numerous medical procedures.
Both drivers and trucking carriers are responsible for a driver's negligence. A trucker is responsible for ensuring his lane changes are safe by frequently checking mirrors and remaining aware of the other cars on the road. Carriers are responsible for hiring drivers with good records, for ensuring those drivers get enough rest on the road, and training those drivers to make sure events like this never happen.
When life-altering events like this do happen, it's our job to make sure carriers and drivers pay for the damages they cause other people to suffer. Our client ought to receive compensation for his medical expenses, lost income, and other losses; that's exactly what our trucking attorneys plan on getting for him.
Arnold & Itkin LLP looks forward to representing our client and helping him to obtain the justice that he deserves. This case was filed in Harris County, Texas.
