While vacationing in Fort Myers, Florida, my client was the restrained right rear seat passenger of a vehicle that was involved in a multiple motor vehicle accident. The vehicle in which my client was a passenger was stopped behind four vehicles due to the traffic condition and the truck was traveling northbound directly behind my client’s vehicle. The truck driver failed to stop due to his negligent use of a cell phone while driving his commercial truck and violently slammed into the rear of the vehicle in which my client was a passenger at the high speed of 45 mph.
Rick Swope, Ph.D., Accident Reconstruct Expert out of Fort Lauderdale, FL., confirmed the truck driver was grossly negligence in permitting the vehicle to be in service with numerous violations and use of a cell phone while operating his vehicle.
