Victims of semi-truck crashes in Maryland can seek legal help

Driving near semi-trucks can certainly be a white-knuckle experience for many drivers in Maryland, especially when the truck driver is driving aggressively or erratically. After all, loaded trucks can weigh tens of thousands of pounds. The size of these vehicles not only magnifies the destruction they can cause in a collision, but also affect numerous motorists in one fell swoop.

When truck accidents occur, it is important to have an attorney perform an investigation, including examining trucking logs. Issues such as driver fatigue, impaired driving and distracted driving can all play a role in a truck accident. No matter what the situation, truck drivers have the duty to operate their vehicles safely. If they breach this duty, causing an accident that injures another motorist, they may be held responsible for the damages.

Defendants in truck accidents may include both the driver and in some circumstances the truck company. A lawyer would be able to help victims pursue compensation against all responsible parties. Holding the right people accountable is important for a victim's physical recovery as well as peace of mind.

Our firm has over 40 years of experience in handling personal injury cases, including truck accident cases. In some instances a case will go to trial. In other instances a positive settlement can be reached out-of-court. Such compensation can go a long ways to helping accident victims deal with the medical bills, long-term care costs and other damages associated with a truck accident, including lost wages and pain and suffering.

Each client's situation is unique and will be treated as such. To learn more about truck accidents, please visit our truck accident overview on our website.
