SETTLEMENT OBTAINED IN FATAL LOG TRUCK ACCIDENT
Michael Thorpe was operating his pickup truck eastbound on Interstate 16 on December 3, 2013. At the same time, a log truck operated on behalf of Kenswood Farm Services, LLC was traveling eastbound. The log truck pulled into the path of another oncoming vehicle causing it to collide with a guardrail and then strike Mr. Thorpe’s pickup truck. This collision caused Mr. Thorpe’s pick-up to flip several times, ejecting him from his vehicle. Mr. Thorpe sustained fatal injuries as a result of this accident.
Our firm’s swift and thorough investigation showed that the log truck driver failed to maintain his lane of travel and negligently operated his vehicle resulting in the injury and death of Mr. Thorpe. Owing to the professional and amicable relationship our attorneys have with the attorneys representing Kenswood Farm Services, LLC, attorneys Forrest B. Johnson and Leitra Young-Maxwell were able to use these investigative findings to obtain a settlement to compensate Mr. Thorpe’s family for this tragic loss.
