Multi-Billion Dollar Corporation Found Negligent After Man Dies
Man Incinerated In Collision

Negligence and cost-cutting from a large corporation became fatal when a fiery collision, caused by an inexperienced driver, incinerated the Plaintiff. The suit had two defendants: Defendant #1 was the nation's largest full-service grocery retailer and Defendant #2 was a small trucking company that Defendant #1 contracted to fulfill their trucking duties. Despite Defendant #2 failing to uphold the conditions of the partnership by purchasing a comprehensive insurance plan, Defendant #1 continued to use them for nearly four years. In fact, Defendant #2 failed to obtain the required California motor carrier permit. The company opted to hire family members in lieu of well-qualified and experienced professional drivers and in this case, chose to ignore the driver's relevant criminal record.

Defendant #2 hired a 21-year-old with less than one year of interstate driving experience and multiple recent convictions including a hit and run, driving while using a cell phone, and two commercial speeding tickets. At the time of the collision, the driver was still serving a 36 month probation for the hit and run. This driver was entrusted to drive a semi-tractor-trailer, loaded with Defendant #1's goods, across the country. However, the driver caused a fatal collision while still in the departure state. The Plaintiff was stopped at a red traffic signal when Defendant #2's driver slammed into the back of his car going 40 mph. The Plaintiff's truck was instantly obliterated and burst into flames. Even after the collision, Defendant #2 failed to comply with the proper regulations and Defendant #1 failed to intervene. Defendant #2 chose not to test the driver for drugs and alcohol within the 24 hour period. Still, Defendant #1 continues to utilize Defendant #2 as a means of cutting costs.
