27 Dec Montgomery County Wrongful Death Trucking Settlement
Plaintiff’s wife was killed when the automobile she was operating struck the side of a commercial vehicle that was hauling live chickens. The wreck occurred at approximately 4:00 a.m., and the commercial vehicle was leaving a poultry farm at that time. Driver of the tractor trailer claimed that the plaintiff’s wife was speeding, but through accident reconstruction, plaintiff proved that the side marker light on the side of the trailer and the retro reflective material on the side were not working. Plaintiff proved that the driver of the tractor trailer failed to yield the right of way to the plaintiff’s wife and she did not see the tractor trailer until just prior to the impact.
