Texas Trucking Lawsuit Blames Driver, Employer for Negligence
A Texas trucking lawsuit alleges that a female plaintiff was critically injured as a result of the behaviors carried out by The Pearl’s Trucking Inc.
According to the Texas trucking lawsuit, on July 18, 2016, a driver employed by the defendant company was traveling on I-30 throughout Dallas country, Texas.
The defendant’s vehicle was located in the far-left lane, according to the Texas trucking lawsuit. Plaintiff Tana G. says she was waiting for an opportunity to make a U-turn and was stopped in the adjoining lane just to the right of the defendant’s vehicle.
Tana claims she was stopped at a red light with traffic directly in front of her. However, the driver of the defendant vehicle was allegedly unable to make a U-turn, stopped the forward movement of the semi-tractor trailer and began backing up towards the plaintiff’s vehicle.
The plaintiff then honked her horn to make the defendant driver aware of her position, but she alleges in the lawsuit that he did not stop and instead continued backing up until he hit her and caused an accident with serious injuries.
Tana says she made an attempt to escape her car as she saw the defendant’s vehicle getting closer to her but knew she would not be able to get out of the driver side, according to the lawsuit.
She tried to exit over the passenger side and alleges that the awkward position she had to get into because of the defendant’s behavior led to ruptured discs at two different cervical vertebral levels.
The Texas trucking lawsuit alleges that the driver and the employer company were responsible for the driver’s inability to keep a proper lookout, choosing to attempt a U-turn that he was unable to make, making a dangerous maneuver, and failing to timely apply his brakes.
The plaintiff says that she will need support for her medical payments due to past and future physical pain and mental anguish, physical impairment, physical disfigurement, and more because of the necessary fusion surgery required to treat those injuries.
