Financial Compensation For Truck Accident Injuries
Attorney contributor Laurence Banville is a personal injury lawyer who represents people injured in truck accidents and other auto accidents. Laurence has some info to share on the legal rights of people injured in truck crashes:
If you’ve recently been injured in an auto accident, you may be struggling with several financial and personal difficulties. It’s important to be aware of your options for financial compensation at this time. Along with insurance, you may have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit.
In accidents involving trucks and other commercial vehicles, a lawsuit may be an option against the driver, the company, or both parties. If the accident was caused by the driver’s negligence, he or she could be held liable. If negligence by the company contributed to the accident, then those injured may have grounds for a lawsuit against the company.
For example, a trucking company could be considered negligent for hiring a driver with a long history of driving offenses like reckless driving or drunk driving.
