Justice For Victims Killed in 18-Wheeler Truck Accidents

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan works for a truck accident law firm in Texas. Marc has many years of experience representing victims and their surviving family members seeking justice for truck accidents. He sat down with us to highlight the legal options available for families of those killed in 18-wheeler truck collisions.

"Many times, accidents caused by 18-wheeler trucks can cause serious injuries or even death. Proper driving practices should be followed by large truck drivers to reduce the risks of tragic accidents. Distracted driving is one of the main causes of accidents, along with excessive speeds, failing to yield to other traffic, and ignoring traffic signals. A negligent truck driver can be held responsible for the injuries they cause." 

"To learn more about their legal options, victims of 18-wheeler truck accidents should talk to a truck accident lawyer. This legal representative can help determine if a civil lawsuit can be filed. It is often possible to file a lawsuit against the negligent truck driver, but victims and their families may have a case against negligent third parties. The trucking company may be held accountable if they failed to ensure the driver was properly licensed to drive the large truck. Furthermore, if they were aware the driver had previous traffic violations, they could be considered negligent for allowing them to continue to drive. An experienced truck accident lawyer can help the victim or their surviving family members get the justice they deserve by holding all responsible parties accountable."
