Although every accident is unique, when a semi tractor-trailer is in an accident resulting in injury or loss of life, it is important to determine whether negligent conduct was a factor. When it is reasonable to claim that negligence contributed to an injury or fatality, it is often possible for injured victims to seek compensation for certain medical expenses, pain, suffering and possible lost wages. Survivors often seek compensation for loss of companionship as well.
It is important to accurately identify truck and trailer owners, truck lessors and lessees and other relevant parties when such crashes occur.
