Trucking Accident Injury Attorney
Motor vehicle accidents that involve large commercial tractor-trailers are handled quite differently than other traffic collisions. The trucking company will generally be held liable just so long as the driver is determined to have been operating the truck negligently while working. Investigators will be attempting to determine if excessive speed, intoxication, distracted driving, or anything else that may be considered negligent behavior was involved.
Depending on the outcome of the investigation, there may likely be grounds for a personal injury lawsuit to follow. Many victims who experience hospital bills, lost wages, future medical expenses, and property damage as the result of an accident will attempt to obtain compensation. Of course, this is a personal decision that may only be made by the victim.
