Gibson Vance, host of the Beasley Allen Report, welcomes fellow Beasley Allen attorney LaBarron Boone to discuss a recent case involving tractor trailers and their lack of proper safety standards. Using his degree in engineering for product liability cases, Mr. Boone started at Beasley Allen in 1999 as the firm’s 10th attorney. In 1999, he was highlighted in an issue of Jet Magazine, which profiled two of his high-verdict product liability cases. Accidents involving commercial vehicles, such as 18-wheelers, log trucks and buses, make up 12 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities; however, Mr. Boone believes that it only takes small changes to make drastic improvements in safety. For example, in one recent case involving a log truck, a man was killed after the truck’s cab guard failed to protect him from incoming logs in an accident. The driver was unaware that the cab guard had been designed with a heat-treated aluminum substance instead of a strong steel, or thicker gauge aluminum.
