My law partner Jim Lewis just posted a trial report on our website regarding a wrongful death as a result of a collision with a tractor trailer.
The contractor client was on his way to work in his personal car during the early morning hours, prior to sunrise. During the several hour period prior to his trip, a small amount of rain caused a portion of the highway to become covered with “black ice”. When the contractor client’s vehicle hit this “black ice”, he lost control and his car went off to the side of the road and rolled over onto its roof. Our contractor client got out of his car, called 911 and began retrieving personal items from his vehicle.
