Wrongful Death: 18 Wheeler Accident
Our client’s husband was on the job at the location of his employer in Deerfield Beach, Florida. While performing his usual and customary duties of loading his company truck in the parking lot and delivery area, he was struck and crushed by an 18-wheel delivery truck from another company. The driver of the 18-wheel truck was backing up and had completely jackknifed his vehicle in an effort to get to a particular loading dock. The maneuver resulted in him backing blindly, with no vision of our client’s husband or his truck. The careless backing driver was not aware that he hit our client’s husband, and further, was not aware that he struck his parked truck. The claim was brought on behalf of the surviving wife and two minor children.
