California Trucking Accident Injury Attorney
An in-depth investigation will certainly be seeking to determine who was at fault for this accident. As of right now, it seems fairly safe to say that the truck driver will be held liable, however, accidents involving commercial vehicles are generally handled a bit differently than other traffic collisions.
As long as the driver is deemed to have been operating the big rig during working hours, then the truck company will likely be accountable for the damages. Depending on the conclusive outcome of the investigation, there may be a personal injury lawsuit to follow. However, the decision to file a claim for recompense is a terribly personal one that can only be made by the victim.
