This case involves a car accident with a semi-truck. The plaintiff, a twenty-five-year-old female, was driving home from work in the middle lane of a highway. When she was about a mile away from her exit, a semi-truck passed her in the right lane. After the truck had passed her, she moved over to the right lane in order to get off at her exit. As she moved over, the truck hit a bump on the road and the latch on the liftgate of the truck broke open. This caused the liftgate of the truck to swing open and crates full of fruit to fall on the road. The plaintiff had to swerve off the highway and crashed into the embankment. She totaled her car and suffered a concussion, dislocated shoulder, and had several cuts across her face. Upon review of the trucking company’s records, it was revealed that the latch had come loose on numerous occasions, causing items to fall from the truck.
