Fitzsimmons Law Firm PLLC recently filed a wrongful death lawsuit against
a trucking company and its driver when the driver allegedly caused a severe
accident when he improperly swerved into the adjacent lane without signaling
or warning other drivers on the road including the car being driven by
the plaintiff's decedent.
According to the Complaint, the defendant truck driver recklessly and negligently
swerved into the right hand lane without activating his turn signal or
giving any other signs or signals to drivers in the right hand lane including
plaintiff’s decedent. As the truck driver changed lanes, the truck
struck the plaintiff’s decedent’s car causing it to spin into
the opposite lane into oncoming traffic where it was struck at a high
rate of speed by another vehicle. As a result of the collision, the plaintiff’s
decedent suffered severe and fatal injuries.
The case is currently pending in the Circuit Court of Marshall County,
West Virginia. The plaintiff is seeking all damages permitted by West
Virginia law, including damages for medical bills, funeral expenses, and
lost wages and benefits. The plaintiff is also seeking damages for pain
and suffering suffered by her husband prior to his death as well as other
wrongful death type damages, including sorrow, mental anguish, and loss
of the decedent’s society, companionship, comfort, guidance, advice,
services, protection, care and assistance.
