According to CNN, Tracy Morgan sustained serious injuries Saturday in a crash involving the former “Saturday Night Live” player’s limo van and a semi truck. Another comedian riding in the van was killed in the collision. If you were injured in an accident involving an 18-wheeler, our Morgantown truck accident attorneys can build a strong case on your family’s behalf.
Unlike collisions between passenger vehicles, in many cases multiple parties could be held responsible for the victims’ injuries in a truck accident. Potentially liable parties can include the truck driver, his/her employer, and the manufacturer of the vehicle and/or its components.
Depending on the circumstances of the accident, our Morgantown attorneys can pursue a claim against these parties on your behalf. We can’t guarantee the outcome of any case, but truck accident victims are often entitled to damages for:
- Medical costs
- Anticipated expenses for future treatment, including rehabilitation and at-home care
- Forfeited income, including expected lost wages
- Emotional distress.
The huge size and weight of tractor trailers often means truck accidents can end in catastrophic injuries and even the death of one or more of the victims. If a family member died in a collision with a semi, our lawyers can pursue compensation for end of life care, funeral bills, loss of companionship, and other damages on your family’s behalf in a wrongful death action.
Truck accidents can take a physical, emotional, and financial toll on victims and their families.
