Whenever a semi-tractor trailer or 18-wheeler rolls over or collides with a passenger car, serious injuries can occur to all involved. When a truck accident occurs, our firm will investigate to determine which parties are at fault. Sometimes, the truck driver will be responsible because he was driving while intoxicated, at an unsafe speed, or in violation of other traffic regulations. Other times, the trucking company may be responsible for overworking the driver or requiring the driver to violate various safety regulations. If a mechanical problem cause the accident, the truck manufacturer or the maintenance company may share the blame.
Injuries associated with trucking accidents include broken bones, whiplash, internal bleeding, head trauma, the loss of a limb, paralysis, or even death. Our dedicated attorneys can go over all of your legal rights and options with you.
