The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has reported that over one hundred truck-related fatalities occur each year in the state of Virginia. Accidents involving large semi-trucks are often more complicated than those involving cars due to the amount of damage that can be caused. Because of their size and weight, trucks and tractor-trailers are difficult to maneuver and can easily cause serious traffic accidents.

In addition to that, there may be separate insurance companies involved for the truck, the driver, and the cargo separately. This can often make resolving a truck accident claim a time-consuming and frustrating ordeal, especially without a qualified attorney.

Effective Legal Guidance for Truck Accident Lawsuits

If a negligent truck driver hit you or someone you love, causing injury or death, you have the right to seek financial compensation from the responsible party. Obenshain Law Group has recovered millions for accident victims and is ready to help you.

If you have been involved in a truck accident, you need to obtain legal representation immediately. The separate insurers can delay the legal process, while any injuries you may have suffered need medical attention. These medical bills can quickly stack up, all while you may be potentially missing out on work, leaving you with a lack of income.

If you have been injured in such an accident, call Obenshain Law Group today so we can help you get back on your feet.

Trucking accidents are typically caused by one of the following:

  • Driver error: This can include driver fatigue, inattention, distraction (texting, etc.), or substance abuse.
  • Truck equipment failure: This can include design flaws, manufacturing errors or mechanical issues with the truck.
  • Weather conditions: Bad weather can cause for a greater increase in accidents in general. Trucks cannot stop as quickly on slick or icy surfaces, so if it is has been raining or snowing there may be a greater chance for a collision.
  • Improper loading: If a truck's cargo has been loaded incorrectly, it can cause them to top over with greater ease.
  • Sub-standard truck drivers/companies: Some drivers or trucks may not be driving or acting in accordance with FMCsA regulations.
  • Failure to Maintain the Truck
  • Lack of Driver Training
  • Speeding

"Who can I sue for a tractor trailer accident?"

The truck driver, trucking company, truck manufacturer, management company, or other negligent drivers may be responsible for your accident. If the truck driver was fatigued, he or she could be held responsible for your injuries. Furthermore, if the trucking company failed to hire a qualified driver, you could hold the diver's employer responsible for the accident.

If you were involved in an accident in Shenandoah Valley, a skilled tractor-trailer accident lawyer can help you establish a case for negligence against the responsible party. Like any personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit, truck accident cases are based on the ideas of liability and negligence.
