Commercial vehicle collision attorneys at Arnold & Itkin LLP filed suit on behalf of a family from Texas who suffered a life-altering event at the hands of a careless commercial truck driver. Our clients were on a vacation when a trucker changed lanes without looking, which tore the door off the family’s minivan. The impact inflicted extensive physical, mental, and emotional injuries on the family. Three generations of family members—seven members total—were involved in the collision. Family members have continued to experience lingering, severe pain as a result of disc herniations and other significant injuries that were caused by the crash.
Reckless truckers aren’t the only ones responsible for accidents like this. Careless trucking companies who hire or lease trucking equipment to reckless drivers need to be held accountable for their negligence as well. Without poor hiring standards, poor employment policies, or other industry practices, this accident never would have occurred. Arnold & Itkin looks forward to assisting this family get back to normal after this terrifying event.
This case was filed in Franklin County, Georgia.
