A contributor to Legalherald.com and founder of BanvilleLaw.com, experienced truck accident attorney Laurence Banville shared the following insight for victims and family members of victims injured or killed in semi-truck crashes:

“Accidents, particularly truck or semi-truck accidents, don’t just happen randomly. In the majority of cases, negligence can be declared as the cause of a tragedy. The most common causes of semi-truck incidents include:

  • Poor maintenance of vehicle
  • Driving while tired
  • Drunk driving
  • Texting and driving
  • Part failure

In any of the above situations, there are several parties who have the potential to be considered at fault. Nevertheless, every case is different and requires careful analysis of the facts and circumstances surrounding an accident to determine the best course of action.

The reason for filing a truck accident or death lawsuit is to provide victims and their loved ones with a compensation that will pay for their injuries, loss of income, and other non-monetary losses such as emotional trauma. The compensation is the result of a successful verdict in court or an out-of-court settlement with the defendant, and is always based on the actual losses suffered by the plaintiff.

Those individuals who have suffered injuries in truck accidents should consider contacting an experienced truck injury attorney as quick as possible. Through this avenue, they will have someone with whom to discuss their case, and learn of the options on the table if looking to pursue compensation.”
