Seeking Justice for Semi-Truck Accident Victims

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan is an experienced semi-truck accident lawyer representing victims across Texas. Marc recently discussed the legal options available for the surviving family of victims killed in tractor-trailer collisions.

"The state of Texas has seen a rise in the number of accidents involving commercial trucks, like semi-trucks, tractor trailers, and 18-wheelers. Unfortunately, not much is being done to improve driving safety regulations. Given the large size of the trucks, the impact of these crashes can be severe and often fatal. Drivers are tasked with driving long hours and given strict deadlines that encourage little rest and possibilities of increased speeds."

"Studies have shown that driver error causes the highest percentage of semi-truck crashes. These errors can include speeding, driver fatigue, driving under the influence, and distracted driving. Other causes include drivers failing to secure loads, failing to yield to other drivers, and lack of maintenance to the vehicle. However, the truck driver is not always to blame. Sometimes third parties can be liable for truck accidents. Issues stemming from road maintenance, vehicle malfunctions, and other passenger vehicles can result in a truck accident."

"Victims or the surviving family members of those killed in semi-truck accidents should consult with an experienced semi-truck accident lawyer. The attorney can help identify those liable for the damages and help hold them accountable. Many times financial compensation is available for victims involved in truck collisions."
