A Fort Worth man and his wife were injured early this morning when a Ford F-150 failed to turn at a T-intersection and crashed through the front of their home!
The couple inside was asleep when the truck came barreling in. The front bumper hit the headboard of their bed against the window.
The impact knocked the man across the room. The woman was taken to a hospital for treatment of her injuries. What a terrible way to get out of bed!
Of course the driver of the truck was not injured, and police have not released the results of his intoxication screening. Suing drunk drivers is one of my primary focuses.
This crazy case reminded me of another I handled last year for an Arlington teenager who was inside a 7-Eleven store when a driver who was parking his car in front hit the gas pedal instead of the brake, crashed through the glass windows, and hit my client. I was able to obtain a copy of the surveillance tape (see below) and use it to negotiate a favorable recovery with the driver’s attorney and insurance company.
