This case involves a man in Florida who suffered fatal injuries due to an allegedly dangerous modification made to a semi-truck. On the date of the incident in question, the pedestrian was waiting to cross a busy, multi-lane road on the sidewalk. The defendant driver was proceeding through the crosswalk when the pedestrian was struck in the face by a handle that was protruding from the side of the truck’s trailer. It was later discovered that the handle was an aftermarket part that had been installed on the trailer by the owner operator of the truck after purchase. It was alleged that the design and / or installation of the part was unsafe.
