Arnold & Itkin’s truck accident attorneys have filed suit on behalf of a man who was seriously injured when the driver of a commercial vehicle changed lanes and crashed into his car.
The incident involved a truck owned by Maverick Utility Inc. The truck driver was not paying adequate attention and changed lanes when it was unsafe to do so, violently striking our client’s vehicle. Our client, a hardworking father, experienced injuries to his back, head, and neck.
Companies like Maverick have several obligations when it comes to roadway safety. They must properly maintain their vehicles, they must hire properly trained and licensed commercial drivers, and they must demand that their drivers obey traffic laws and operate their vehicles in a safe manner. When they fail to uphold these obligations, people can be seriously injured or lose their lives in resulting accidents.
Unsafe lane changes are one of the leading causes of trucking accidents in the United States, and truck operators should not only be trained to check blind spots but should always pay attention before moving their immense vehicles into another lane. Maverick’s driver failed to exercise proper care, and our client suffered as a result.
Our team will conduct an independent investigation into this accident to reveal its cause, and we look forward to holding all at-fault parties accountable. We filed this case in Dallas County, Texas.
