Truck accident attorney Steven M. Gursten was interviewed by WXYZ Channel 7 Action News in relation to a serious Grand Rapids truck crash that took the life of trucker Albert Martinez, who worked for Aero Bulk Carrier.
Reporters requested an interview with Gursten for his insight, as he was chair of the American Association for Justice (AAJ) Interstate Truck Litigation Group and he is head of Michigan Auto Law.
Gursten commented on Aero Bulk Carrier, the truck company that hired Martinez, who had four speeding tickets and a warning from the Secretary of State. And Aero Bulk Carrier had six accidents (not including the latest) among its 36 drivers in the last two years, where five of those crashes resulted in juries and one fatality.
Said Gursten, “You don’t have six accidents in two years with that few drivers unless something is going on. So it really makes me wonder what kind of policies and procedures that company has in effect to prevent accidents.”
