Case in Point

Motorist struck by tractor-trailer on route not designated for trucks

The plaintiffs alleged that the truck driver’s employer was vicariously liable for his negligent operation of the vehicle and his negligence in traveling on a highway that was not designed for tractor-trailers. Suit also claimed that the defendant had failed to properly train the driver, who was inexperienced and allegedly could not read a map sufficiently to plan a route properly. The parties settled before trial for $1.25 million. Ritchie v. Averitt Express, Inc.
