Our client is a tugboat captain who lives outside of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. As he was driving home after a crew change, the driver of a Kroger 18-wheeler sideswiped his vehicle. Our client was pushed into the concrete barrier on the highway and suffered severe back, neck, and head injuries as a result.
There is no excuse for reckless and aggressive commercial drivers; companies must do their part to ensure they hire experienced truckers and enforce safe driving standards. Our team is working to help our client get the medical treatment and support he needs while holding Kroger accountable for its unsafe driving practices.
“When trucking companies don't pay attention on the highway, disaster strikes,” said our attorneys in a statement. “Cases like this are necessary to hold trucking companies accountable and make the roadways safer for all of us. We're proud to be doing our part to help make this a reality.”
We filed this lawsuit in Harris County, Texas.
