PA-Harvey Peyton; J-Holliday
* On July 24, 2011, near Morgantown, the defendant company failed to secure a drilling apparatus to a service truck. Part of the drilling apparatus fell onto Interstate 68 and hit plaintiff's brand new 2011 Toyota Rav 4. Chris Slemp and his son were in the car headed to Lake Erie for a fishing vacation. The car sustained damages in excess of $1,600, and the Slemps had significant aggravation, annoyance and inconvenience as a result of the expenses. In October, defendants offered to pay $1,638.28 to settle. Plaintiffs refused, seeking other damages in addition to the monetary ones. They now also seek compensatory damages, as well as attorney fees and money for credit card expenses associated with the accident.
