David Williams was working as a landscaper for the company TruGreen Corp. in 2011 at the time of his accident. He contends that his employers ServiceMaster Co., the owner of TrueGreen Corp., along with Dickinson Fleet Services LLC were negligent in their maintenance of the truck Williams drove for his job.
Williams was driving the truck when he suddenly lost control and swerved off the road due to a bald tire. The force of the accident ejected him from the truck and caused a fractured spinal cord that has required multiple surgeries. The resulting injuries left Williams a quadriplegic, with no feeling below his chest and very limited mobility in his arms and hands.
