Fears Nachawati Takes on Texas Wrongful Death Case

August 25, 2016

Accident Information

On August 3, 2016, a Texarkana man was tragically killed in Sabine County, Texas as a result of a motor vehicle accident involving a tractor trailer and an unoccupied vehicle.  Jerry Lee Woods, 58, was the driver of a 2006 tractor trailer carrying a load of asphalt and paving equipment.  It appears that the tractor trailer’s brakes malfunctioned which prevented Woods from stopping the vehicle at an intersection of two major highways.  The vehicle rolled over and Woods was ejected from the truck.  Woods had two passengers with him at the time of the accident who both sustained serious injuries.

 

Trucking companies have a duty to maintain and service their vehicles in a reasonable manner. Further, additional state and federal regulations apply to owners of large tractor trailers as the 40 ton vehicles have the potential to cause substantial damages, significant injuries, and even death. These regulations are set in place not only for the public’s safety but also for the safety of the truck drivers and passengers.

Fears Nachawati is representing the heirs of Jerry Woods regarding his wrongful death. Woods’ tragic and unexpected death has taken a heavy toll on his children and family. Fears Nachawati is committed to pursuing the claims of Woods’ children in order to obtain just and fair compensation for the death of their father.
