Justice For Truck Accident Victims

Attorney contributor Anjali Nigam helps victims file truck accident lawsuits across the state of Texas. As an experienced tractor-trailer accident attorney, Anjali recently shared some information regarding the legal options available for accident victims.

"The duty of care for trucking companies is clear and well established in the law. Trucking companies must ensure the safety of the public by ensuring that their drivers, vehicles, and cargo are properly maintained and operated in a safe manner. When a trucking company fails to fulfill its duty of care, it can be held liable for any injuries caused by its negligence."

"Truck accidents can involve a wide range of issues, from driver fatigue to mechanical failure. Negligence can involve failing to properly maintain the truck, failing to properly train the driver, or failing to inspect the cargo."

"Those injured in truck accidents have the right to seek compensation for their injuries. This includes both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are those that can be quantified, such as lost wages and medical expenses. Non-economic damages are those that cannot be quantified, such as pain and suffering. The amount of damages that may be recovered depends on the specific facts of the case. It is important for those injured in truck accidents to consult with an experienced tractor-trailer attorney. An attorney can help assess the case and determine the best course of action to pursue. An attorney can also ensure that the victim’s legal rights are protected and that they receive the maximum compensation available."
