Injured in a Semi-Truck or Tractor-Trailer Accident?

In the aftermath of a truck accident, there are a number of issues that need to be raised and a number of questions that need to be answered.

  • What caused the accident? Truck drivers have a responsibility to drive safely, and the companies that hire them have a responsibility to ensure those drivers are properly trained and experienced.
  • Was the truck maintained on a regular basis? There are federal and state regulations mandating that semitrucks and large commercial vehicles are inspected and sufficiently maintained.
  • Is the trucking company or its insurance carrier offering you a settlement? Trucking companies and their insurance carriers are often more interested in protecting the bottom line than those who were injured in accidents involving their trucks. Before you discuss your accident with them, speak with an experienced lawyer.
