California Motorcycle Accident and Wrongful Death
Accidents that involve commercial vehicles are handled a little differently in terms of accountability. Should the investigation determine that the driver of the truck was operating the vehicle in a negligent manner, or that the truck experienced some form of mechanical failure that led to the accident, then the trucking company will be held liable for all damages. Depending on the irrefutable conclusion to the investigation, there may possibly be a path toward a wrongful death lawsuit available to the family members of the victim. Of course, only the victims’ family may choose to file a claim for compensation.
