Laurence Banville of Banville Law is an attorney contributor at the Legal Herald. He has commented on the legal rights of those injured in an accident involving a semi-truck.

"There is nothing like the devastation that a large struck can create when it crashes. Those who have been injured in a truck accident are typically eligible to file a truck accident lawsuit against the negligent party. Negligence occurs when a driver doesn't act in a reasonable manner while behind the wheel and as a result, puts others around them in danger. For example, drivers often choose to do the following activities while driving:

  • text
  • eat/drink
  • groom
  • watch TV
  • read

These activities frequently cause serious accidents and injuries.

Even with auto insurance coverage, the out of pocket expenses for a truck accident victim can be astronomical, especially if they are unable to return to work. This is why the law allows the victims to seek compensation for their medical treatments, lost earnings, physical pain, and emotional trauma through a lawsuit

If you or a loved one were hurt in a truck accident, be sure to contact an experienced attorney as quickly as possible so that they can work to preserve evidence."
