Compensation for Semi-Truck Accident Victims

Attorney contributor Jeff Gibson is an experienced semi-truck accident attorney representing victims and their families injured in collisions in the state of Indiana. Jeff recently discussed the legal options available for victims injured during accidents involving a semi-truck.

"Serious injuries or death can result from collisions between semi-trucks and other vehicles. Semi-trucks often weigh as much as 80,000 lbs when fully loaded. Truck drivers must take this into consideration and drive more carefully, being aware of others on the road. Distracted driving is the number one cause of most accidents. A semi-truck driver who is careless and causes an accident should and can be held accountable. Speeding, neglecting to yield to traffic, and disobeying traffic signals are all examples of negligent driving."

"However, a third party may often be liable for a truck accident. If the trucking company failed to uphold its duty to maintain the vehicle, it could be held responsible. Additionally, manufacturer defects could cause an accident, for which they should be held accountable. A semi-truck accident attorney can assist victims and their families in identifying all liable parties. Injured victims should explore their legal rights with the guidance of an attorney in order to get the full compensation they rightfully deserve."
