Family of Accident Victim Sues Truck Maker

Ruben Tyler Kendrick4 years ago

The family of a driver who was killed in a 2008 trucking accident has filed a lawsuit against the truck’s manufacturer, claiming the vehicle had design defects which contributed to the deadly wreck.

Facts about the Product Liability Case

  • The accident occurred on I-91 in February 2008.
  • The truck driver attempted to avoid a Dodge Caravan that was broken down on the side of the road when he lost control and crashed through the guardrail.
  • His truck fell 70 feet onto the road below and burst into flames; he died in the fire.
  • Plaintiff’s attorneys argue that the vehicle’s manufacturer, Daimler Trucks, is at fault because the truck’s fuel tank was improperly designed, causing it to rupture and combust with the broken batteries as the source of ignition.
