Texas Woman Obtains Compensation from Stevens Transport Inc.

A 36-year-old woman was seriously injured when a tractor-trailer plowed into the passenger side of her truck, pushing it more than 600 feet. The tractor-trailer was being operated by a commercial driver employed by the tractor’s owner. The officer investigating the crash determined the only factors contributing to the crash were committed by the commercial driver who was legally intoxicated at the time of the collision.

In a lawsuit filed by The Ammons Law Firm, Rob Ammons claimed that the big rig driver was grossly negligent for driving drunk and causing the crash. Ammons further argued that the driver’s employer, Stevens Transport Inc., was negligent in its hiring and driver supervision practices.

The crash occurred at an intersection when the driver of the tractor trailer crossed the oncoming lane and then struck the right side of the woman’s truck, causing the truck to strike another car and pushing the truck more than 600 feet, according to police reports. The truck driver was charged with intoxication manslaughter and intoxication assault.

The woman suffered fractures of her ribs and foot, injuries to her spinal nerves and herniated discs. The woman also experiences nightmares of the accident and was diagnosed with anxiety disorder as well as post-traumatic stress disorder.

The Ammons Law Firm has a nationwide personal injury practice focusing on tire defects, truck accidents, rollovers, consumer protection and product liability, catastrophic injury, wrongful death, post-collision fires, seat belt defects, air bag defects and plant explosions.
