Suffering injuries and enduring damages in a crash can greatly impact the victims involved as well as their loved ones. Our firm understands that when West Virginia residents fall victim to a truck crash, the results could be devastating. A semi-truck and a tractor-trailer are large vehicles that could seriously injure or even kill a victim in their path. Whether they are in another vehicle or are a pedestrian, the large size of these vehicles could temporarily or permanently disable a victim struck by a truck.

When an individual in injured or a loved one is killed in a truck accident, they seek to hold the responsible party accountable. In most truck accidents, there isn't just one liable party. Liability could extend to the truck driver as well as their employer, the owner of the vehicle and even the equipment manufacturer. Because fault could extend to multiple parties, it is crucial to investigate the incident.

The details following the investigation of a truck accident will not only determine cause but also liability. Once this is established, a civil action could be filed against the liable parties by an injured victim or the loved ones of a deceased. A personal injury suit or wrongful death claim could result in compensation, which is used to cover expenses and damages associated with the accident.
