Family Injured in Crash, Sues Safelite and Employee

A family filed a personal injury civil suit against Safelite and a Safelite employee on April 24. The plaintiffs seek over $75,000 in damages.

Plaintiffs Virginia and Brandon Mumford allege that Safelite employee Hunter Lee Robertson rear-ended them as they were driving down the highway on June 18, 2022. Robertson was allegedly driving a Safelite vehicle at the time.

The Mumfords claim they and their two underage children also in the vehicle were seriously injured by the crash.

According to their legal complaint, the Mumfords claim that Robertson “failed to pay attention and failed to control his speed,” causing the collision. They claim Robertson was negligent or “negligent per se” for reasons including “failure to take appropriate evasive action” and “failure to maintain proper control of the company truck.”

The complaint claims Safelite was negligent in hiring, supervising, training and keeping Robertson as an employee, creating the circumstances that led to the collision.
