A Texas man has sued a trucking business on wrongful death charges in a 2014
collision that claimed the life of a husband and father.
The man, acting as estate representative, sued Dickson’s Trucking of Atoka, Oklahoma, in the Marshall Division of the Eastern District of Texas on July 14, claiming negligence and wrongful death in a deadly motor vehicle crash that happened in May of 2014.
According to the suit, the truck driver was operating a tractor-trailer in Mount Pleasant, Texas on May 28, 2014 in the scope of his employment. The suit states that when the crash victim was exiting a parking lot, the truck driver “slammed” into his vehicle. Documents state the man was unresponsive and later died due to his injuries.
The complaint cites pain and suffering, medical and funeral expenses, loss of income and property damage. The truck driver is charged with failing to lookout properly, drive at a safe distance and speed, stop to avoid impact and keep his vehicle in working order. The company is cited with negligence in entrusting a commercial vehicle, failure to inspect and maintain the vehicle, and failure to comply with traffic regulations.
Claiming loss of consortium and support, bereavement, mental anguish and grief on the part of the victim’s surviving daughter and widow, the plaintiffs’ representative seeks more than $75,000.
