Arnold & Itkin LLP Attorneys Kurt Arnold, Kyle Findley, and Adam Lewis filed a lawsuit today on behalf of family members who were injured when a commercial truck struck their vehicle in Houston. Immediately prior to the accident, our clients were lawfully driving in their lane when the defendants’ truck made an unsafe and erratic lane changewhile trying to exit the freeway at the last minute. The defendants failed to safely change lanes and failed to keep a proper lookout, swerving into our client’s lane and colliding with them as a result. Our clients have suffered serious injuries, which will require extensive medical treatment.
The maneuver the defendants executed in this accident would be dangerous for even a small passenger vehicle. Commercial trucks weigh up to 80,000 pounds and can require as much as 200 yards of braking distance. A truck that weighs nearly as much as a train car has no business making such reckless lane changes. As a result of the at-fault trucker’s recklessness, our clients have suffered serious, costly, and lasting harm. Arnold & Itkin is proud to represent people harmed by the reckless and negligent actions of others, as well as hold those responsible in this case.
This case was filed in Harris County, Texas.
