Trucking Company to Compensate Family of Texas Man in Fatal Crash

The Ammons Law Firm has successfully concluded a wrongful death case against a trucking company and its commercial driver on behalf of a man who left behind his wife and only child.

In the crash, the driver of the tractor-trailer pulled into a four-lane highway in South Texas instead of yielding the right-of-way to traffic. Attorney Robert E. Ammons claimed the driver of the tractor-trailer was negligent in failing to yield to oncoming traffic, entering an intersection when unsafe and failing to keep a proper lookout. The reckless conduct of the driver caused the crash, but Ammons further alleged that his employer failed to properly train and monitor its driver to make sure he wasn’t placing other drivers at risk.

The man’s wife and child sought wrongful death damages that included loss of the positive benefits flowing from the love, comfort, companionship and society their husband and father would have given them had he lived as well as the emotional pain, torment and suffering they experienced as a result of their loved one’s untimely and unnecessary death.
