Arnold & Itkin is currently representing a working mother who was involved in a traffic accident when a large commercial truck rammed into her vehicle. The incident happened while she was waiting at a stoplight after dropping her children off at school. Not only did the collision cause our client to suffer severe injuries that required surgical intervention, but, over the next few months, the defendant driver began harassing our client over the phone. This harassment escalated to a point where he threatened to come to our client’s workplace. She left work early that day, terrified of what might happen if he showed up.
Companies that are responsible for putting drivers behind the wheel of large commercial trucks have a duty to ensure that they are properly trained and operate their vehicles safely. If an accident does occur, companies should make sure their employees follow a process that allows the matter to be resolved professionally. When a mother who has already experienced the trauma of a serious accident is now experiencing the terror of being stalked at work and subjected to other shocking behavior, we refuse to let that stand.
Our truck accident attorneys are prepared to hold the company and driver accountable for their conduct. We look forward to helping our client recover and move on from this horrific situation.
We filed this case in Travis County, Texas.
