Sacramento Trucking Accident
Investigators are most likely working to understand all the aspects surrounding this crash, although accidents involving commercial vehicles are generally handled a little bit differently in terms of liability. If the operator of the semi is found to have performed their duties in a negligent manner, or if the mechanical failure of the tractor-trailer is determined to be at fault, then the trucking company will likely be held liable for all damages. Depending on the outcome of the investigation, there may be solid grounds for a personal injury claim to follow.
