Brothers file suit against trucking company and drivers involved in fatal crash
Posted on December 20th, 2009 by Zane Cagle
The brothers of a truck accident victim have filed suit in California this month against four trucking companies and the drivers involved in a fatal truck accident in November 2008 for the wrongful death of their father, younger brother and two others. According to the suit, the brothers alleged that one of the defendants was driving a tractor trailer and rear-ended the victim, pushing his vehicle under the rear of another semi-trailer. Everyone in the vehicle was killed. At the time of the accident, a dust storm had made visibility more difficult, and the suit alleges that tractor trailers should have been off the road that morning due to repeated broadcasts of the storm warnings and cautions of reduced visibility. Thus, the brothers believe the defendants’ negligent and unlawful conduct is responsible for their family members’ deaths.
