    Default Another 12 plus million gone

    The Gomez Law Firm Attorneys Obtain $12.2 Million Verdict Against Trucking Company Held Responsible For Motorist's Brain Injury
    >PRWEB.COM Newswire
    San Diego, Ca (PRWEB) August 16, 2011

    On August 5, 2011, a Vista, California jury announced a $12.2 million verdict against a trucking company, YRC, Incorporated holding it responsible for motorist's brain injury. In January, 2008, two wheels separated from the rear axle of a YRC tractor-trailer on Interstate 15 in San Diego County. A Chevy Metro collided with one of the trailer wheels, causing the seatbelted driver to strike his head on the roof of the car. The motorist suffered a traumatic brain injury and spinal injuries.

    That wheel probably weighed more than that stupid Metro.

    While the judgement was large, I cannot blame the auto driver for
    seeking compensation in the courts, he was seriously injured thru no
    apparent fault of his own.

    I wonder if the driver of the yrc truck was written up for faulty pre-trip?

    That's why you don't leave the yard until you're sure the equipment is road worthy, last summer I was in the shop until 2:30 pm (8:30am start) until the trailer they loaded was fixed, needless to say moronagement was out of their minds. I even asked if they wanted me to swap to another trailer earlier, they said that would take to much time, oh well. LOL!!!

    I don't think they were blaming the victim I think they were trying to say the victim was pretending to be injured..That is kinda like when a dockworker breaks a leg and management just says there is no pain the worker is making it up..What do you mean you want to go to the hospital??? You haven't finished that stripper..

    my question is why was this equipment on the road? The guy in the Metro had every right to be compensated. I know equipment fails but both tires coming apart sees a little much.

    Time has nothing to do with it. Its all about what column it puts the number in.
