Arnold & Itkin is representing a client who was injured because a truck driver was not paying attention and caused an accident on the interstate.
Our truck accident attorneys have filed suit on behalf of a worker who suffered head, neck, spine, and knee injuries in an incident caused by a reckless commercial driver. Our client was injured because this driver was not paying attention while driving on the interstate.
As professionals, commercial drivers are held to a higher standard of care. They operate immense, heavy vehicles that can cause considerable damage in any collision, and they must therefore be specially trained and licensed. There is no room for inattention or error. The companies that employ and use commercial drivers are also obligated to enforce state and federal trucking regulations amongst all their drivers; they must demand that their truck operators exercise proper care, pay attention to the road, and obey traffic laws. When they don’t, serious accidents happen, and people like our client suffer the consequences of their drivers’ failures.
“Our client has forever been changed because of the defendants' reckless decisions to drive without paying attention on an interstate,” said our attorneys in a statement. “We look forward to holding the defendants responsible for their unacceptable decisions.”
We filed this lawsuit in Galveston County, Texas.
