CBS News reported that one person died and three others were injured in a multivehicle crash on I-20 where Palo Pinto County and Parker County meet in Texas.
Two semi trucks and a passenger vehicle were slowing due to a traffic collision when a third truck hit the passenger vehicle, causing it to hit the other big rig. The driver of the third truck was pronounced dead at the scene, while three others were taken to a hospital for treatment.
Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan works as a semi-truck accident injury lawyer that frequently represents accident victims throughout Texas. Marc recently explained some of the legal options available for victims injured in an accident involving a semi-truck and their surviving family members.
"Large truck crashes are different from other vehicle accidents in that injuries can be catastrophic. Multiple parties could be liable for your injuries; that's why they are more complicated. The truck driver is one of many that could be at-fault."
"It is possible that a negligent truck driver, a trucking company, or a truck manufacturer may be liable in a lawsuit. The facts can be reviewed by an experienced accident lawyer, helping victims and their families choose the best course of action."
