A claim was brought against the company for negligent hiring and supervision. The young couple sustained injuries to their necks and shoulder resulting in surgeries. Mr. D. was a veterinary student who also had a wage loss claim against the trucking company due to his inability to work with large animals because of the injuries he sustained.
