Faulty truck, unfit epileptic driver cited in fatal Detroit truck accident

Michigan Lawyers Weekly covers Steven M. Gursten’s truck accident wrongful death case that resulted in a $3.9 million settlement, the largest Michigan reported settlement for 2008.

In Nunez v. Utica Transit Mix, Plaintiff Patrick Nunez was killed when a fully-loaded gravel hauler smashed into his vehicle on I-75 in Detroit. The truck driver admitted in a deposition he was on powerful epilepsy medication Tegretol (which causes drowsiness), and that his truck was out of service in more than five different ways.
