In April of 2013 a jury trial was held in Guilford County concerning a wrongful death case against BB&T Insurance Services. The personal injury suit was brought by the mother and ex-wife of the BB&T Insurance employee, Stuart Thomas, for the wrongful death of the passenger due to the employee-driver’s negligence. The personal injury claim was that Mr. Thomas was talking on a mobile phone conducting the employer's business at the time the vehicle he was driving ran into the back of a tractor trailer, killing the himself and his passenger/daughter.
