All factors of a semitruck accident have to be considered

In our previous blog post, we discussed how semitruck accidents that are caused by fatigue are often preventable. These accidents are often very serious accidents. Think about the Tracy Morgan crash that occurred in 2014. That accident left the comedian in a coma, and another person was killed.

The trucker who slammed into the vehicle the comedian was in hadn't slept in 28 hours. It is reasonable to assume that trucker fatigue was a factor in that accident. While not all accidents involving a fatigued trucker are that serious, they are still accidents that could have been prevented.

If you were injured in an accident that involved a semitruck, you might want to know if you can seek compensation for your injuries. In many cases, this is possible. If you do opt to seek compensation, we can review your case and investigate the circumstances of the case. This can help us to determine who needs to be held responsible for the accident.

In some cases, the trucker, the trucking company and the insurance company could all be held accountable in your lawsuit. Making sure that we name the appropriate defendants is a primary concern in these cases.

On top of determining who is responsible, we also have to determine what types of damages you are going to have and in what amounts. All of this is combined with the facts of the accident so that we can prepare a case for your lawsuit. Because you are bound by the statute of limitations, we must take action quickly so that your time to seek compensation doesn't expire before the claim is filed.
