On April 1, 2022, Matt Glover, PGH attorney, filed a lawsuit in Tuscaloosa County, Alabama on behalf of four clients (the plaintiffs) who were seriously injured in an automobile accident. Matt sued the driver of the vehicle that collided with his clients. He also named Liberty Mutual Insurance Company as a defendant. The complaint charges the adverse driver with negligence in failing to yield the right of way which was the cause of the crash. The plaintiff who was driving the car traveled through the intersection of McFarland Boulevard and Rose Boulevard with a green traffic signal. The adverse driver, traveling eastbound on McFarland Boulevard, entered the turn lane and attempted to turn onto Rose Boulevard crossing the plaintiff’s lane of travel. The adverse driver had a yellow flashing turn arrow on McFarland Boulevard. The new flashing yellow arrow means turns are permitted, BUT you must first yield to oncoming traffic and pedestrians, then turn with caution. According to the Alabama Department of Transportation, a flashing yellow arrow signal offers a safer, more efficient way to handle traffic turning left at busy intersections.
Matt also included a count in the complaint for underinsured motorist coverage against Liberty Mutual, the insurer of Matt’s client who was driving. The complaint alleged that the adverse driver was underinsured, thus triggering the claim for underinsured motorist coverage. All four of Matt’s clients were seriously injured. They were all taken by ambulance to the emergency room and required further treatment afterward. Three of the four required surgery for their injuries.
