Fallen Police Officer’s Family Suing Truck Company

With the help of truck accident Attorney Michael Leizerman, the family of fallen Department of Public Safety officer Tim Huffman is suing the truck driver that killed him in May. Our television partner KYMATV has learned that Leizerman is going after 33 year old Jorge Espinoza and his employer, Evans Dedicated Systems.
Espinoza is charged with one count of second degree murder, 13 counts of endangerment and seven counts of criminal damage. Espinoza plowed into Huffman's car, while looking at an electronic device, killing the officer immediately on I-8. Leizerman says there has been an increase in accidents involving cell phone use, especially internet use.
