Jury Finds Trucking Company Responsible for Fatal Trucking Accident

Trucking accidents can be extremely devastating. They are categorically distinct when compared with other automobile accidents. For more on the distinctive qualities of trucking accidents, please click here for a previous blog article.

Devastating Effects of Trucking Accidents

A major difference between car accidents and trucking accidents is that the damages can be significantly greater with trucking accidents. An article from describes an accident where the damage from a trucking accident was indeed devastating.

Romero-Soto Accident

In December 2004, the Romero-Soto family was traveling from Los Angeles to Monterrey when a fatal trucking accident occurred. The truck involved in the accident belonged to Nabors Trucking.

The circumstances of the accident are that Martin Soto, the driver of the Romero-Soto family’s suburban, was attempting to pass a Nabors truck when the truck made an improper turn. This caused the suburban to flip three times. Aydee Romero was killed in the accident and six others were injured.

Recently, a Fort Stockton jury found Nabors trucking responsible for the fatal trucking accident. The Romero-Soto family was awarded a $2.5 million settlement.

Rick Plezia, one of the plaintiff lawyers on the case, in an article featured on his blog said, “The family is very pleased that the jury saw the errors of the turning eighteen wheeler. We tried this case for almost two weeks, and was pleased that the jury wanted to make sure their community was safer by rendering the verdict.”

While it is unknown at this point as to whether or not Nabors Trucking will attempt to appeal the verdict, at this point, we hope that the Romero-Soto family is able to receive some support as they continue to recover from this terrible accident.

It is fortunate that they were able to receive the advocacy they deserved from Plezia and his firm.Trucking accident attorneys are extremely important adversaries in those trying times of recovering from the devastating losses of a trucking accident.
