Heavy truck accidents discussed by Beasley Allen attorney LaBarron Boone

Today on the Beasley Allen Report, Beasley Allen attorney Kendall Dunson fills in for the show’s regular host, Gibson Vance. Dunson interviews today’s guest, fellow Beasley Allen attorney LaBarron Boone, on “heavy truck accidents,” or 18-wheeler accidents. They examine two aspects of legal liability involved in these accidents: injuries and deaths caused to others on the road by truck drivers, and injuries and deaths caused to truck drivers because of product liability. Boone offers simple steps to avoid accidents, focusing on defective products as well as the role of fatigue and distracted driving in heavy truck accidents. As an example, Boone describes a manufacturer’s decision to produce cabguards for trucks that were never tested on the real road. In Beasley Allen Law Firm’s investigation, lawyers were unable to find a case where these cabguards worked correctly and served their intended purpose. Boone discusses litigation’s role in pushing manufactures to find alternative design solutions, making simple changes to ensure product safety. Dunson and Boone warn viewers about the dangers of distracted driving and encourage concerned drivers to get involved in truck driver regulation revisions by contacting their state legislators.
