Liability In Semi-Truck Accidents
All drivers have a legal responsibility to operate their vehicles according to the prevailing conditions of the road. During times of inclement weather and at night drivers should slow down in order to be safe. This also applies to semi-trucks as well. FMCSA guidelines cap the speed of commercial trucks at 55 mph even under the best of conditions.
Any person that is injured in a truck accident may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim. Damages in a civil claim can help cover lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. A personal injury attorney can examine all of the facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
