What are the implications of repeat driving infractions for the PA personal injury attorney?
Does repeat offense create a presumption of fault in a civil case,when that civil case stems from a criminal act? Or, does the fact that certain details were hidden in a previous civil suit negate the responsibility of a school district for having hired a bad bus driver?
Nearly a decade ago, Frederick Patrick Poust III was driving while dialing on his cellular phone. As a result, he slammed into a car, killing 2 year old Morgan Lee Pena.
The Pena family subsequently filed a lawsuit against Poust, settling in the fatal accident case. The truth is that his driving record was only modestly impacted; given that distracted driving laws weren't in place at the time. Furthermore, the lawsuit had a confidentiality agreement which prohibited the family from speaking publicly about the driver.
