A 29-year-old career Army soldier sustained a fractured pelvis in a trucking accident when the driver of his car swerved to miss a Prime semi truck that was illegally parked on a highway entrance ramp. When the driver swerved, he lost control and spun onto the highway and into the path of oncoming traffic. The vehicle was struck, resulting in a multi-vehicle collision.
The client filed a lawsuit against Prime Trucking when it was learned that the company’s driver had experienced multiple mechanical failures prior to stopping on the highway entrance ramp. The driver had been instructed by the company to continue operating the truck, knowing it was not safe to do so. The Prime truck eventually broke down on a dangerous, blind curve.
