Victims Of Tractor-Trailer Accidents Have Legal Options

Brian Kent is an attorney contributor who fights aggressively for the victims of tractor-trailer accidents and helps them recover the financial compensation they both need and deserve after a catastrophic accident. Here he shares his thoughts on the legal rights of those seriously injured in a tractor-trailer accident.

Many semi-truck accident victims and their loved ones believe that the auto insurance companies will pay to ensure that they get the medical care they need. Insurance companies, however, have only one major goal – to save the company money. Adjusters are trained to look for reasons to deny a claim or to reduce the amount paid out.

Even if the maximum amount is paid out in a truck accident claim, the harsh reality is that this typically doesn’t pay for all of the medical treatments required by the victim or any of their lost wages. This means truck accident victims are left to struggle financially while dealing with immense physical and emotional pain.

The law, however, allows tractor-trailer accident victims and their loved ones to seek full compensation through a truck accident lawsuit. These lawsuits are filed against the responsible party. Examples of possible responsible parties include:

  • a distracted driver who caused the accident
  • the manufacturer of an auto part which failed and either caused the accident or failed to protect the accident victims
  • an auto repair shop which failed to fix a mechanical issue

If you or a loved one have been injured in an accident involving a tractor-trailer, you can learn more about your legal rights and the financial compensation you may be owed by speaking with an experienced truck accident attorney.
