Large trucks, including tractor trailers and other commercial vehicles, are common on the busy interstates and highways that pass through Garland. If one of those trucks is involved in a crash, it’s highly likely that the occupants of other vehicles involved will suffer serious or even fatal injuries.
When an individual is involved in an accident with a large commercial truck, the legal case is much more complex in many ways when it comes to liability, especially if the case is a wrongful death case. It’s typical for commercial truck accidents to have more than one liable party involved, including not only the driver, but also the company he or she works for. It’s important that your attorney be familiar with automobile accident law, and also wrongful death cases if the accident involved a fatality.
Most large truck accidents are preventable. In most situations, the accident occurs because of the fault of one of the drivers. However, there may also be maintenance defects, defects in manufacturing the truck, or other factors.
