Virginia Truck Attorneys Needed to Sort out Tractor-Trailer vs. Tractor-Trailer Accident
It was a case of tractor-trailer on tractor-trailer wreckage that left a truck driver injured and traffic snarled for miles on Interstate 95 (I-95) in Virginia (VA). What caused these mammoth vehicles to collide? The driver of the first big rig tried to stop suddenly for slow traffic on the interstate when he lost control careening into a second tractor-trailer. The second rig then ran off the interstate and overturned while crashing down an embankment. The first tractor-trailer jackknifed, blocking the right lane and shoulder but luckily no other vehicles were struck.
The victim of the truck accident was taken to the hospital for injuries and we hope he recovers fully. As a Virginia (VA) tractor-trailer injury lawyer we sometime take injury cases where the tractor trailer driver was the one harmed, such as in this case.
Depending on whether the at-fault rig was commercially or privately owned will make a huge difference in the direction this injury case will take. Because there are many liability, underinsurance and separate insurance policies involved in any trucking business, tracking down the insurance sources or proper trucking company that may be responsible can be an overwhelming burden.
