Helping In The Aftermath Of An Accident With A Commercial Truck
When a passenger vehicle is in a collision with a semi truck, construction vehicle or other large commercial truck, the consequences can be devastating. A fully loaded semi can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, and a typical passenger vehicle is closer to 2,000 pounds. When an 80,000-pound semi traveling at 60 miles an hour hits a passenger vehicle, the passenger vehicle crumples under the force of the impact. When this happens, the driver and passengers rarely escape serious injury.

The Complex Nature Of Commercial Truck Accident Claims
Accidents involving commercial vehicles are much more complex than accidents between two passenger vehicles. This is mainly because commercial trucking is highly regulated, and accidents can be caused by many factors beyond negligence on the part of the truck driver. There are several entities and individuals involved in getting trucks on the road. Negligence or errors committed by any of these parties can lead to accidents. Entities and individuals that may be at fault in such accidents include:
- The truck driver
- The trucking company
- The truck manufacturer
- Repair shops that did work on the truck
- Vendors who loaded the truck
- Local governments in charge of road maintenance
It takes an attorney with knowledge and experience in filing trucking accident claims to get you the compensation you deserve. At Attorney Joseph Kelly Levasseur, PLLC, I have over 20 years of experience guiding people through the claims process, and I can help you.
