Establishing Liability In Truck Accident Cases

If you were recently involved in an accident, you have the right to pursue litigation to obtain compensation for injuries and property damage. However, if your accident involved a large truck like a semitruck trailer or 18-wheeler, there could be extra steps required to establish their liability for the crash.

Trucking is a complex industry, and making a claim against a driver is not as simple as getting their insurance information. Further, injuries to drivers of passenger cars are often worse due to the size of the truck. Because of these factors, your personal injury case requires an in-depth investigation to determine the following:

  • Who owns the truck
  • Who is responsible for the truck's insurance
  • The immediate and long-term costs of your injuries
  • The amount of property damage to your vehicle

Don't let the complexities of earning recovery after a truck accident confuse you. Instead, rely on the help of an experienced attorney.
