A Texas man has died following a five day hospital stay after he was thrown from his motorcycle due to an 18-wheeler negligently switching into his lane. The man attempted to avoid colliding with the 18-wheeler once he saw the driver was switching into his lane but was ejected from the motorcycle, suffering multiple blunt force injuries from which he later died.
On behalf of the man’s daughter and son, attorneys Rob Ammons and Justin Burrow have filed a lawsuit against the 18-wheeler company and its driver for negligence. According to the lawsuit, the driver of the 18-wheeler was changing lanes while unsafe, failing to timely apply his brakes, being inattentive, and driving without a valid driver’s license. The employer of the driver is responsible for such negligence in operating its vehicle since the 18-wheeler was driven in the course and scope of the driver’s job duties.
