Truck Accident Injury Attorney
Investigators are currently attempting to determine liability as they look at various factors of the crash. They are likely looking at whether or not excessive speed, distracted driving, or intoxication played a role in the crash. If the driver of the big rig is determined to have been negligent behind the wheel, then there will most likely be grounds for a serious personal injury claim.
Large commercial trucking accidents are typically handled a bit differently than other motor vehicle accidents. As long as the driver is determined to have been driving during working hours, the victim will likely be holding the trucking company liable for their injuries, as opposed to the driver. Many victims file a claim for compensation due to extremely high hospital bills, future medical expenses, lost wages, and property damage. Albeit, it is solely up to the victim to decide if they wish to file a claim.
