NH woman, children win $8.5M in wrongful death suit against trucking company

The Associated Press

CONCORD, N.H. — A New Hampshire woman and her two children have won $8.5 million in a wrongful death lawsuit against a trucking company.

A federal court jury in Concord concluded Thursday that Loignon Champ-Carr Inc. negligently caused the death of 38-year-old Jon Paul Lacaillade II, of Meredith.

Lacaillade was killed in 2008 when a Loignon tractor-trailer ran over and killed him while he was bicycling in Porter, Maine.

The Citizen reported that Lacaillade’s widow, Michele Lacaillade, and their two children filed suit last year against the company, which is based in Quebec and has a U.S. presence in Cornville and Jackman, Maine.

The newspaper said attorneys for Michele Lacaillade and the trucking company could not be reached for comment.
