Cab guard failure verdict highlighted on WSFA

In a case led by Beasley Allen attorney LaBarron Boone, a jury determined on Jan. 19, 2017, that a defective cab guard on Larry Albritton’s log truck failed to protect him from being crushed to death when his truck crashed and logs breached the cab. Cab guards are required as front-end structures on 18-wheelers that pull flat beds, trailers and log trailers, and are meant to prevent shifting cargo from contacting the cab of heavy trucks. The cab guard’s failure resulted in a $16.8 million verdict.
