Jonesboro, GA— Trial is scheduled to begin next week against a trucking firm accused of responsibility for a 2015 motorcycle crash that injured a Georgia man. Stevens v. J.R.K. Trucking, et al., 2018-CV-01518.

According to documents filed in the case, Ronnie Stevens claims he crashed his motorcycle when a dump truck driven by J.R.K. Trucking’s Donald Parks struck an orange construction barrel and sent it into Stevens’s path. Stevens claims the crash, on I-75 in Henry County, broke his ankle and wrist. 

Stevens is seeking $178,000 in past medical expenses alone, plus other compensatories and punitives, according to court records. 

J.R.K. and Parks contend the dump truck driver did not cause the accident.
