Attorney Joey Morris Serves Family in Resolving Accidental Death by Tractor Trailer

Experienced Wrongful Death Lawyers in Alabama

Attorney Joey Morris successfully litigated a case for the children of a man with dementia who was killed by a tractor trailer while walking on the side of the road. The family of the decedent sued the trucking company that employed the driver. The accident happened in the early hours of the morning while it was still dark, and the truck driver’s employer claimed that the man walked out into the road in front of the truck, resulting in his death.

Morris successfully connected with various witnesses and spoke to people who saw the man walking on the side of the road in the minutes before he was hit. Witnesses verified that, upon seeing the man, they had enough time to steer clear of him when driving by. In Morris’ investigation, he recovered a video from the truck’s dashboard camera, which revealed that the truck driver did not attempt to avoid the man, even while he was visible to the driver. Morris settled the case in mediation.
