When a big rig collides with a car or motorcycle the results can be devastating. With tractor-trailers weighing 75,000 pounds or more, a car is no match in a collision.
The causes of truck accident collisions can be many, such as a defective roadway, bad weather and negligence of the truck driver.
Although the driver may be the person responsible for the collision, there are other people who may be required to compensate an injured person. Those people and entities can include the trucking company, the employers, anyone who contracted with the trucking company and of course there is the truck insurance.
If a person is injured by a tractor-trailer it is important for their lawyer to identify as many responsible parties as possible.
