Truck Accident Lawyer – Get the Advice of Our Experienced Team
When a car and an 18-wheeler collide, the car and its passengers typically take the brunt of the injury. Given the sheer size of semi-trucks, delivery trucks, moving vans, and construction vehicles, tractor-trailer accidents can result in serious personal injuries and fatalities that require the expertise of a truck accident lawyer.
Who should pay?
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) along with a variety of state and federal laws regulate the trucking industry. However, many tractor-trailer accidents involve violations of federal regulations or negligence on the part of the truck driver. Things like excessive speed, driver fatigue, the absence of proper reflective markings on a truck, wide angle turns, lane drift, and improperly pulling over on the shoulder can all lead to accidents.
When they do‚ and if the accidents cause injuries and fatalities‚ the trucking company and its employees may be legally and financially responsible. To determine who should pay, you need the advice of an experienced truck accident lawyer.
