Such accidents lead to serious injuries and expensive medical recoveries

Identifying the liable party is essential

As with any car accident lawsuit, success hinges on proving your injuries are the direct result of the actions of a negligent person or party. In tractor-trailer accidents, there may be more potentially negligent parties than in other traffic accidents. The owner of the tractor as well as the owner of the trailer may be liable. If a faulty brake repair job is to blame, the liable party may be a third party company hired to perform that repair. An accident caused by driver fatigue could be the fault of the driver or the driver’s employer.
