What Is a Tractor Trailer?
A tractor-trailer is a large truck that pulls a trailer. The trailer can be used to transport goods, or it can be used as living quarters for the driver. The tractor contains the cab, where the driver sits, operates the vehicle and pulls the cargo. The trailer houses that cargo and gets pulled by the tractor. In some cases, the vehicle contains multiple trailers pulled by a single tractor.
Tractor-trailers are mammoths on the road and because of their size and weight, these large commercial vehicles are responsible for an alarming number of truck accidents that injure other drivers, motorcyclists, and pedestrians. A tractor-trailer may become extremely challenging to stop safely in an emergency situation. When a tractor-trailer crash occurs, serious truck accident injuries and deaths often exist.
Proving Negligence with a Tractor Trailer Accident Lawyer
Many of the lawsuits our clients bring against trucking companies are due to negligence on the part of the tractor-trailer driver or the trucking company. We know the injuries that result from these collisions can be life-changing for everyone.
How do tractor-trailer accident attorneys prove negligence in tractor-trailer accident cases? They often rely on the doctrine of negligence per se. This legal principle states that a defendant is automatically considered negligent if they violated a safety law that was specifically designed to protect people from the type of harm that occurred in the accident.
At Wilshire Law Firm, our team of licensed attorneys knows how to prove negligence and link it directly to the truckers or companies that have caused tractor-trailer accidents.
Getting Fair Compensation for Your Injuries
When tractor-trailer crashes occur, the injuries that follow typically require extensive medical attention, and in some cases, loss of life has occurred, and a wrongful death lawsuit may be needed.
The compensation we seek for our injured clients aims to pay for:
- Medical Expenses
- Lost Wages
- Lost Future Income when injuries require career changes
- Pain and Suffering Damages
- Punitive Damages
Since we started in 2007, our team of tractor-trailer accident injury lawyers at Wilshire Law Firm has collected over $1 Billion for our injured clients and their families. We are dedicated to fighting for what matters most: making you whole again in the eyes of the law, so that you can rightfully focus on yourself and your loved ones.
Don’t Miss Deadline To File a Tractor-Trailer Accident Injury Lawsuits
In California and Nevada, the statute of limitations for truck accident injury cases is two years. This means that you have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit. If you miss this deadline, you may be unable to get any compensation for your injuries. It is important to seek legal assistance as soon as possible after an accident so that you can understand your rights and make sure that you do not miss the deadline.
