This case takes place in Georgia and involves an accident on a highway. The plaintiff, a fifty-three year old male, was driving from New York City to Boston at 3 AM. While driving, the plaintiff’s vehicle slid over a patch of black ice, went into the adjacent lane, and rotated 180 degrees before it came to a stop. The tractor-trailer in the adjacent lane did not stop in time and struck the plaintiff’s vehicle. The driver of the tractor-trailer claimed that when the vehicle rotated 180 degrees, he saw that it was in his lane, and applied the brakes. He also claimed that he started applying the brakes one hundred feet from where the plaintiff came to a stop. The plaintiff sustained serious injuries, and brought suit against the tractor-trailer’s driver and company for negligent driving and inadequate training. Plaintiff retained an expert in vehicle accident reconstruction.
