As a Fort Worth Wrongful Death attorney I am providing this news regarding this tragic wrongful death case.
A California family has filed a lawsuit against a big rig trucker and his employer over the death of a cyclist last month.
The accident happened as the cyclist turned right into the path of the truck. The lawsuit accuses the driver of negligence and violating the cyclist’s right-of-way.
The trucker and his employer paid $1.5 million to settle a separate wrongful death suit stemming from a 2007 collision that involved the trucker and a bicyclist in Santa Cruz.
This trucker has been involved in three fatal collisions while on the job, according to CHP records, but investigators have never found him to be at fault.
