Injured in a Commercial Vehicle Accident | Contact an Attorney
18-wheeler crashes can be very devastating, considering the fact that these tractor trailers can carry up to 80,000 pounds. After a tractor trailer accident, I tell clients that they need to get a truck accident lawyer immediately. Insurance companies and the tractor trailer companies are already on the scene, trying to do all things necessary to protect their interest. I tell clients they need somebody to protect their interests, preserve that evidence, and make sure that they don’t provide information that’s unnecessary to the insurance company or the trucking company. That’s why I say go get a lawyer as fast as possible.
Injured in a Commercial Vehicle Accident | Suing a Trucking Company
When I bring a lawsuit involving a tractor trailer crash, I often have clients who are curious about suing a trucking company after an accident. What I tell them is that we typically sue the defendant driver for violating the driving safety rules, but we also sue the trucking company that employed him and that gave him the truck that should have been maintained properly. That is because they should have done a background check on him before they gave him the truck. The trucking company is always responsible for the negligent acts of their drivers. Those are just two of potentially many more people that we can sue involved with the trucking company who can be held accountable and responsible for the negligent acts that caused the crash.
