Father Sues West Virginia Department Of Transportation For Wrongful Death

Posted on Feb 23, 2011
A Leon man is suing both the state of West Virginia and the West Virginia Department of Transportation (WVDOT) for wrongful death. The lawsuit concerns a 2009 traffic accident in which the man’s son was killed.

According to the West Virginia Record, 57-year-old Samuel Legg of Mason County has filed a wrongful death lawsuit that states that the Department of Transportation is responsible for the death of his son, 22-year-old Chad Legg. In 2009 in Point Pleasant, Chad Legg was stopped at an intersection in his Jeep Cherokee when 47-year-old Lisa Pete slammed into the back of his vehicle with her Jeep Cherokee. Pere was an employee of the DOT and was working for them and driving their vehicle at the time of the WV car accident.
