LINCOLN COUNTY, ARKANSAS – Arkansas truck accident lawyers, Gordon, Elias & Seely, LLP, are representing a client who was involved in an automobile collision that occurred about one-half mile north of Gould, Arkansas on October 22, 2008. The Plaintiff sustained serious and disabling injuries when the vehicle driven by Defendant EADS and owned by Defendant CONWAY, struck the vehicle in which the Plaintiff was riding as a passenger.

Plaintiff is a 57 year old farm laborer who cannot work due to the injuries he sustained in this crash. He lives in Dumas, Arkansas.


Acute cervical spine injury with nerve root irritation as well as lumbar strain.

The incident occurred early morning on October 22, 2008 when an 18-wheeler driven by Defendant Erick Eads crashed into the rear of the pickup truck the Plaintiff was in. The driver of the pickup truck was signaling to turn right from Highway 65 into a parking lot when the big rig violently rear-ended him, causing the pickup truck to overturn several times before coming to a stop. Eads was cited for careless and prohibited driving. At all times pertinent hereto, Eads was in the course and scope of his employment with defendant Conway Freight, Inc.


Due to the size and speed of 18 wheeler trucks and other commercial trucks, truck accidents can be far more devastating than other car accidents on the road. Even a low speed impact with a semi truck can deliver catastrophic results. The severity of a car versus 18 wheeler truck crash or pickup truck crash can result in life-changing injuries and even death.

Erick Eads was a defendant driver who was employed by Conway Freight, Inc. at the time of the subject incident. Conway Freight, Inc. has been sued under the legal doctrine of respondeat superior. Respondeat superior is a legal doctrine which states that, in many circumstances, an employer is responsible for the actions of employees performed within the course of their employment.

Trucking companies have a duty to ensure that the equipment used by their drivers is safe, that drivers are properly screened, and that their procedures comply with state and federal regulations. Unfortunately, violating trucking laws, failing to screen employees, or failed maintenance can lead to devastating and catastrophic highway trucking accidents.

Since trucking laws are governed by hundreds of regulations, litigation can be very complex. Hiring the right truck accident attorneys who specialize in Interstate truck accident laws is essential for a successful verdict outcome.
