Justice For Victims Killed in 18-Wheeler Crashes

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan is an experienced 18-wheeler accident attorney in Texas. He represents individuals injured in truck accidents as well as the families of those killed. In a discussion, Marc shared his insight regarding the legal rights of victims involved in 18-wheeler or semi-truck accidents.

“There are a lot of factors that can cause an auto collision. Distracted driving, texting and driving, fatigue, or even speeding are some of the most common. Many people who are involved in truck accidents are left with financial and medical burdens. These victims or their surviving family members have legal rights, including the possibility of financial compensation to help with medical expenses and more.”

“Sometimes, a third party may be held responsible for accidents involving commercial vehicles and 18-wheelers. The circumstances surrounding the incident should always be investigated to determine if it was a result of negligence or recklessness. The company responsible for the truck might be liable for the damages if the collision resulted from neglect of maintenance, like faulty brakes. An experienced truck accident lawyer can help victims determine all parties responsible for an accident involving a semi-truck or 18-wheeler.”
