Truck injury lawyers at Arnold & Itkin filed suit today on behalf of a mom, her two young children, and her roommate who were injured by a negligent and unrepentant commercial driver. They were on their way to empty out a storage unit when they approached an intersection with a disabled traffic light. Instead of treating it as a 4-way stop, a large work truck plowed through an intersection without stopping and crashed into 3 vehicles, including the vehicles that belong to our clients.
The driver placed the blame everywhere but himself, where it belonged. The officers who responded looked at the evidence, spoke to witnesses and came to the conclusion that this driver was at fault. However, it isn’t just the driver who’s to blame here. His employer had a responsibility to hire a driver who was professional, attentive, and responsible. This driver exhibited none of those traits when it mattered most, and those failures are on the company’s shoulders too.
This family suffered a traumatic accident, but we look forward to helping them pick up the pieces—beginning with holding the at-fault driver and his company responsible. The case was filed in Montgomery County, Texas.
