Accidents involving semi-trucks can be devastating

| Sep 5, 2014 | Commercial Vehicle Accidents

In any semi truck accident there are potentially multiple factors to blame. Some are the result of loads that are not secured property or equipment failure. Others are due to driver behaviors such as fatigue or alcohol or drug use. In still other cases actions that constitute distracted driving, such as using a phone or texting are the cause.  An accident caused by any of these factors could lead to someone being seriously injured or killed. That person may even be you or someone you love.

In situations where someone is seriously hurt in a truck accident, the first matter that needs to be addressed is getting proper medical care. Next, it is important get in touch with a personal injury attorney to get the process of recovering compensation going. The sooner this happens the sooner evidence in your favor may be collected. If you wait too long, witnesses may disappear and evidence besides trucking company driving logs, DOT inspection reports and police reports can be lost.

A lawyer may be able to help you recoup compensation to cover expensive medical bills and other expenses that arise as a result of the accident. In addition, in some situations punitive damages may be secured as well.

While all motor vehicle accidents have the potential to be complicated, because the trucking industry is so heavily regulated, those involving trucks are particularly complex. If you are facing this situation it is best to work with a lawyer who has handled trucking accident cases in the past. For more information please see out semi truck accident web page.
