MONTGOMERY, ALA. (September 29, 2020) – Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis and Miles, P.C. has filed a complaint on behalf of the estate of Leland and Stephanie Courson, owners of Carol’s Carpet, who were tragically killed when their motorhome overturned on Interstate 65 in May 2020. The defendants include Tiffin Motorhomes, Inc., Daimler Trucks North America, LLC, and Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation. Beasley Allen attorneys Greg Allen, Jere Beasley, Kendall Dunson and Evan Allen are representing the estate.
The Coursons were traveling southbound in their 2017 Tiffin Allegro Red Motorhome on Interstate 65 when they attempted to change lanes and the vehicle became unstable and out of control, swerving off of the paved road. Mr. Courson attempted to pull the vehicle back onto the pavement when the motorhome began to roll, resulting in a roof crush that killed Stephanie, Leland, and their beloved dog. Mr. and Mrs. Courson were both wearing their seatbelts.
“Tragically, the Coursons, like others, had no way of knowing how dangerous these very expensive vehicles can be,” said Allen. “They are not subject to any Federal vehicle safety standards regarding roof strength or stability. If one rolls over the structure completely collapses and the weight of the frame and motorhome cause occupants to be crushed.”
The complaint was filed in The Circuit Court of Montgomery, Alabama. Bruce Hill v. Tiffin Motor Homes, Inc. et al 03-CV-2020-901156.00.
