Bob Brzezinski, and
Erin Oglesby of Tom Rhodes Law Firm P.C. recently recovered $4 million for the wrongful
death of a 28-year-old mother who was killed in a collision with a Dynamic
Industries, Inc. driver. The lawsuit held Dynamic Industries, Inc. accountable
for the negligence of its employee.
The victim was a passenger in a vehicle traveling on Highway 183 in Austin,
Texas. The driver for Dynamic was following the vehicle dangerously close
and was on his cell phone for 32 minutes prior to and at the time of the
collision. When the car in which the plaintiff was traveling slowed down
to brake for a car turning left in front of it, the tailgating company
driver slammed into the back of the vehicle, causing it to spin into the
lane of oncoming traffic. Another driver crashed into the side of the
car, killing the decedent almost immediately. She left behind a 10-year-old daughter.
The Dynamic Industries, Inc. driver was towing a boom lift at the time
of the wreck, even though he was not a commercial driver and had never
been trained on hauling heavy equipment by his company. Dynamic Industries,
Inc. knowingly sent him out on this trip to deliver the boom lift to a
client, even though they had other qualified, trained drivers who could
have completed this task. This negligent action resulted in the tragic
loss of the decedent’s life.
Alex Begum of Begum Law Group was of co-counsel in this case. The trial
took place in Cameron County, TX with Judge David Sanchez presiding (Case
