Due to their large dimensions and heavyweight, commercial trucks (or tractor-trailers) may cause debilitating injuries to drivers and occupants of passenger vehicles. Due to the fact that both drivers were killed, calling a truck accident attorney will be essential in order for accident damages to be repaired.
Pending the results of the investigation, if it is found that the 18-wheeler was at fault, the family of the driver who was killed may have the right to file a wrongful death claim against the big rig and their company.
