Truck accidents take place every day in the United States. These accidents lead up to more than 100,000 people suffering injuries as a result of accidents involving commercial vehicles. If you are the unfortunate victim of a truck accident, you may be able to take legal action against the person who is responsible.

Truck companies may be held responsible if they fail to properly train their drivers or neglect to maintain their vehicles in good working order. Additionally, if a company knowingly puts an inexperienced driver behind the wheel or allows one who has a history of negligent driving to operate one of its trucks, it may also be liable for any resulting accidents.
If a driver is operating under the influence of drugs or alcohol or fails to follow traffic laws while on duty, they could face legal action from those injured in an accident. Similarly, if a driver is fatigued due to long hours on the road without proper rest breaks, they may also be held liable for any accident they cause.
