Fatal Truck Accidents in Maryland

Dealing with the aftermath of a fatal truck accident can be incredibly challenging. Regrettably, thousands of victims lose their lives in these accidents every year across the United States. Here in Maryland, we see countless families forced to deal with the devastation that these crashes bring.

After losing a loved one in a fatal truck accident, there are several parties that you can take legal action against. These include:

  • The Truck Driver: Often, the driver of the truck bears some level of responsibility for the accident. Factors such as fatigue, distracted driving, or violation of traffic laws can contribute to their liability.
  • The Trucking Company: In many cases, the trucking company that employs the driver can also be held responsible. They have a duty to ensure their drivers are properly trained and follow safety regulations.
  • Other Involved Parties: Depending on the specifics of your case, other parties may also be liable. For example, if a defective part caused or contributed to the accident, you might have grounds to sue manufacturers or maintenance companies involved with maintaining the truck.
