Focus On Healing After An Accident
Collisions with semitrucks are often quite serious, as the sheer size of the truck means the smaller vehicle is likely to be completely destroyed and the person inside severely injured. If this has happened to you or a loved one, it is crucial that you seek legal help right away because the insurance companies are already working against you.
At Carrazco Law we dedicate our entire practice to helping people who have been wronged. Our lawyers will stand by your side each step of the way, skillfully negotiating and advocating for you in court and out of court.
Holding The Responsible Party Accountable
Truck accidents are unique among motor vehicle accidents because generally, with a commercial truck, there are multiple parties that are potentially responsible for your injury, including:
- The driver. Of course, the driver is an obvious option. Were they driving recklessly? Impaired, whether due to use of substances or lack of sleep? Did they disregard traffic instructions? Drivers for commercial trucks often hold their own personal insurance, so they may be able to contribute to your compensation.
- The company that employs the driver. In some cases, companies do not properly maintain or care for the vehicle. If that contributed to the accident, the company may be held responsible.
- The truck manufacturer. If the accident was caused by some sort of defect stemming from the truck’s design or manufacture, the company that produced it may be liability for your accident.
Your attorney will evaluate the situation using the police report and another documentation, and will create a plan to seek compensation from the responsible party.
