Compensation for Those Injured in Truck Accidents

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan works as a truck accident lawyer helping accident victims seek compensation in Texas. During an interview, Marc discussed when victims injured in an accident could file a truck accident lawsuit for compensation for their injuries.

"Commercial truck crashes are different from other vehicle accidents. This is mainly due to multiple parties being held liable for the injuries, causing them to be more complicated. To navigate liability, victims should seek the help of an experienced truck accident lawyer."

"There are many parties who could be held responsible for a commercial truck accident aside from the truck driver. If the driver of the vehicle was employed by a company, they could be held responsible for the accident. If the accident was caused by a mechanical failure, a legal representative might widen the liability to the vehicle manufacturer. Additionally, if the employer or independent driver didn't routinely get the truck inspected and repaired, they could also be held responsible for negligence. An experienced attorney can help injured victims get the compensation they deserve for medical expenses, lost wages, and more."
