Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan is an experienced 18-wheeler accident lawyer who represents individuals injured in truck and other auto accidents in Texas. During a recent discussion, Marc shared information regarding the legal rights of people injured in accidents involving tractor-trailers and commercial vehicles.
“Many factors can lead to a collision involving an 18-wheeler or semi-truck. Some of the most common include distracted driving, texting, and driving, fatigue, or even speeding. Sadly, those involved in auto accidents, especially truck accidents, are often left with significant financial and medical difficulties. Injured victims should know they have legal rights that may include compensation to help with medical expenses and even lost wages.”
“Too often, when an accident occurs involving a commercial vehicle or 18-wheeler, a third party may be held responsible. The circumstances surrounding the incident should always be investigated to determine that it was not a result of safety negligence. For instance, if the collision resulted from maintenance neglect, like faulty brakes, the company responsible for the truck could be held liable for the damages. An experienced truck accident lawyer can help victims determine any and all parties responsible for an accident involving a semi-truck or 18-wheeler.”
