Lawsuit filed for death of Carol’s carpet owners on Interstate 65 death

A lawsuit has been filed over the interstate death of Carol’s carpet owners Lee and Stephanie Courson.

According to the lawsuit, the two were driving south on Interstate 65 in May when they tried to change lanes and their Tiffin Allegro Red 2017 RV became unstable. Lee Courson tried to pull the RV back onto the road and it started rolling, resulting in a roof injury that killed him, Stephanie Courson, and her dog, the suit says.

The complaint was submitted by Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis, and Miles of Montgomery. Defendants include Tiffin Motorhomes Inc., Daimler Trucks North America LLC and Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation.

“Tragically, like others, the Coursons had no way of knowing how dangerous these very expensive vehicles can be.” Attorney Greg Allen said in a statement, “They are not subject to federal vehicle safety standards for roof strength or stability. If you roll over the structure, it collapses completely and the weight of the frame and RV results in the occupants being crushed become.”

Carol’s Carpet Flooring America has been operating in the river region since 1987. The company now has locations in Montgomery and Prattville that continue to operate as a family business.

Courson’s children, Drew and Laura Courson, posted a video on Facebook in June thanking customers for whom Laura Courson said “have showered our family with acts of love and prayers.” Both said the business won’t change.

“Your legacy lives on,” said Laura Courson.
