Liability & Trucking Accidents
Dealing with insurance claims and legal issues can be challenging after any type of motor vehicle accident. However, injury cases can be even more complex if a semi-truck or other large commercial vehicle is involved.
Trucks are most often used as work vehicles, which means the trucking company could be liable in a crash, even if it was the driver’s fault. Alternatively, loading companies could be responsible for cargo issues, or vehicle manufacturers could be responsible for mechanical defects.
Determining liability is rarely straightforward, which is why it is so crucial to discuss the particulars of your case with an attorney. Our team at Crumley Roberts is here to help you through each step of the process.

- Negligent driver hiring practices
