Commercial Trucks and the tractor trailers they pull are massive, and can weigh up to 80,000 pounds without a special permit. Anything that comes in contact with a commercial truck and tractor trailer is at a significant disadvantage. Injuries involving a Semi Truck or Commercial Truck can be quite severe.
Truck accident injury cases can be very complex, and will typically be heavily disputed by insurance companies. There may be issues as to who will assume legal liability as well. Trucking and transportation companies may invovle third party drivers, owner-operators, there may be a parent company, and so on. Every trucking and transportation entity associated with the truck accident may choose to pass the buck and push liability on other entites.
In the end, it is all smoke and mirrors. If the truck driver is at fault for the accident, you have a right to seek compensation and damages through civil litigation. In the event of the untimely death of a truck accident, the victim's family may seek restitution in a wrongful death civil liability lawsuit.
Common causes of commercial truck accidents include, but are not limited to:
- Driver fatigue - Driver driving beyond the legally allowable period of time per day;
