Car accidents happen every day on our highways and streets, but do you know what to do if you find yourself in an accident with a semi-trailer truck?
Being in a trucking accident can completely turn your world upside down. The medical bills may start piling up, and you may be unable to work to support yourself and your family.
You may find yourself asking, “Can I sue a trucking company?,” and the answer is YES!
It is the trucking company’s responsibility to make sure their trucks are in proper working condition, and that their drivers are qualified to be behind the wheel. Hiring careless and unqualified drivers leaves the company liable in these situations.
If an accident occurs due to a mechanic error, the trailer company may still also be because it is generally their responsibility to keep their fleet properly maintained and mechanically sound.
