Injured Family Files Montana Truck Accident Lawsuit
Tyson E. Logan and Mel C. Orchard, The Spence Law Firm, LLC, in association with the Manley Law Firm in Polson, Montana, have filed a personal injury truck crash lawsuit on behalf of the Mann family, in Montana Federal Court. The complaint alleges a Redman Van & Storage Co., Inc. semi-truck and trailer without operable trailer lights—turned directly into the passenger side of the Mann family’s pickup truck, as Mr. Kelly Mann attempted to lawfully pass on the left. The collision threw the Mann’s truck off the road and caused serious injuries, including a traumatic brain injury to one of the minor children in the vehicle and several other permanent injuries requiring surgeries and therapy.
The case will be tried to a jury in the Missoula Division for the United States District of Montana. The complaint seeks for damages for the family’s injuries, against the defendants Redman Van & Storage Co., Inc., and Rowdy B. Anderson.
