Robert Prince Files Lawsuit on Behalf of Client Injured in Truck Wreck

On March 23, 2020 PGH Senior Partner, Robert Prince, filed suit on behalf of a client injured in a wreck caused by the driver of an 18-wheeler.  Our client was exiting off Interstate 59 in Tuscaloosa County when the truck driver decided to suddenly exit also.  The 18-wheeler struck our client on the left side of his vehicle, causing him in turn to strike a concrete barrier.  Our client sustained physical injuries and ultimately had to undergo back surgery.  The complaint was filed in the United States District Court, Northern District since the defendant trucking company is a Texas corporation.   The complaint alleged negligence and wantonness on the part of the driver and since the driver was an agent, servant and/or employee of the trucking company, it alleged the company was vicariously liable for the driver’s negligence and wantonness.  Further, the complaint alleged these additional claims against the trucking company: negligent entrustment, and that the company wrongfully hired, supervised, monitored, trained and retained its employee (the driver of the truck).  Mr. Prince has handled hundreds of cases involving 18 wheelers  with numerous ones being litigated in the federal court.  In 2003, Mr. Prince and PGH partner Matt Glover, tried a case in federal court involving an 18 wheeler and won a jury verdict of $15.5 million.  If you’ve been involved in a truck accident, contact Prince Glover Hayes online or call us at 205-345-1234 to get the help and representation you deserve from our experienced attorneys.
